Apparel Training and Design Centre

ATDC to be set up soon in Agra

Apparel Training and Design CentreIn a major boost to the textile industry in Agra, an Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) will become functional in the city by January, in which a team of 25 people will be given training for 45 days in clothes designing.

“The new centre would go a long way in the growth of the apparel-making industry in Agra. Moreover, the city has a large population of artisans who are engaged in hand embroidery, zardozi and other handmade products (like carpets, rugs etc). So the talent pool is here to take advantage of the centre. The tailors in Agra need to be upgraded to work on modern machines to manufacture clothes for both international and domestic markets,” Mr. Kishan Chand Jain of Agra Development Foundation said.ATDC

A team from textile ministry is expected to visit the city to finalize the location of the centre. The centre has also planned to develop 13 apparel parks across the country. The government has decided to provide 40 per cent subsidy to private developers for setting up a Rs. 100 crore textile cluster in 15 acres of land.
