The Indian Texpreneurs Federation (ITF) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the National Skill Development Council (NSDC) to train 50,000 fresh workers from January to December 2017. The association will enhance the efficiency of the workers while making them familiar with the uniform work procedures followed in textile mills across India.
The MoU was signed during a skill India event held in Kanpur recently. The training programme is a part of the Prime Minister Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) version II that will be carried out in the mills of Tamil Nadu. Already, 83 mills have applied for the programme and another 52 textile mills will be joining from January.
“This scheme will promote the transparency of operations which will improve the overall production of mill units. Also, it is an opportunity for newcomers to increase their efficiency and earn better income. This step will help the industry in the long run to improve the competitiveness of textile sector to strengthen the Make in India concept,” Prabhu Dhamodharan, secretary of ITF said.
The entire scheme is designed in a professional manner and each process from training to certification will be monitored and supported by Textile Sector Skill Council.
