Raymond Limited, one of India's largest branded fabric and fashion retailers, and leading manufacturer, marketer and retailer of worsted suiting fabrics, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the government of eastern Indian state of West Bengal for imparting skill development training in tailoring to unemployed youth from the state.
 
As per the MoU between the Skilled Training Institute by Raymond (STIR) and the Department of Technical Education and Training (DTET) of the West Bengal government, two centres for skill training in tailoring, one each at Mominpur in Kolkata and Domjur in Howrah, would be set up.
 
The infrastructural support for setting up the training institute would be provided by the state government, while Raymond would provide experts to train the individuals.
 
Raymond is already implementing similar skill development initiatives in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, and is planning to open 20 more centres across India during the next five years with an aim to train 6,800 youth free of cost.
 
Raymond has around 700 shops in India, and on successful completion of the training, the youth can look forward to get employed in any of these stores, or can also create self-help groups.
 
The institutes would offer two courses of six months and one year duration. The six-month course would impart training related to stitching trousers and shirts, while the one-year course will also teach stitching suits.
