Koshy said this during the visit of president Pranab Mukherjee to the Chhindwara (Madhya Pradesh) centre of ATDC last week. President was given a tour of ‘Mission to Movement’ display by ATDC.

Apparel sector provides very positive labour-capital ratio and has huge employment potential for all family members from 18 to 50 and particularly women and disadvantaged youth,” he said.
 
In addition to a tour of ‘Mission to Movement’ display, the president was given first-hand detailed demonstration of each and every work station including the cutting machines, the computerised sewing machines, the pattern making room etc. at the centre. The president also interacted with the SMART Sewing Machine Operator course students under ISDS, MOT and also the new B. Voc courses candidates at the Integrated Campus. 
 
Mukherjee appreciated the infrastructure and quality of training at ATDC as the trainers focus on providing maximum hands-on technical skills through practical approach in simulated factory like training infrastructure of ATDC, supported by factory visits and internships.
 
Committed towards the ‘Skill India Mission’ dedicated to apparel sector, ATDC is the largest vocational training provide for the sector which provides skilled professional workforce, and thus help the industry improve productivity and efficiency for long-term competitiveness. (RKS)
