There is a huge requirement of skilled workforce in Ahmedabad. In Gujarat, ATDCs have trained 546 candidates in AVI long-term vocational courses and 6000 under short-term skill building courses termed as ATDC-SMART. The recent ATDC-SMART project has been very successful in coastal areas like as Bhidhiya and Gaveni villages. 90 per cent of the people there started working in garment industries and moved towards a better lifestyle and quality of life for their entire family. Today they have become a case-study for many to follow.

ATDC has set up this new Apparel skill development centre in Vadnagar, since the place is one of the catchment areas close to Ahmedabad.  The centre is equipped with 42 machines and it is planned to add 20 more machines given the interest of local women to join the programme. Local population is also interested to start the readymade garment industries in and around the Vadnagar for both export and domestic markets.
