Textile- Apparel Sector Value Chain has over 10 Crore people already associated with it and in the past 3 Quarters alone over 1 lakh jobs- were added in the sector despite the slowdown of manufacturing sector and employment market. 
 
Apparel sector provided the bulk of the additional jobs. In the next 5-7 years the industry has the capacity to provide employment to over 50 lakh to 75 lakh people. The focus is to provide rapid vocational training & make available skilled youth & women to the growing apparel export / domestic sectors which face severe skill deficit and attrition. 
 
ATDC’s objective has been clearly stated in this context as “Imparting Skills, Improving Lives”. Linking the ‘employment’ seeking youth to prospective employers and ensuring that they get wage or self-employment is a major endeavour for ATDC.  
 
In recent years being selected as a Nodal Agency for implementation of Skill Development for apparel sector by MOT, GOI and as a National VTP network by DGET / NCVT have helped in rapid growth and expansion of ATDC. 
 
ATDC has emerged as the largest training provider in the apparel sector with about 190 Centres in 23 States and 85 Cities and have trained over 1,00,000 people in less than 3 years under Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS), MOT, GOI through SMART (Skills for Manufacturing of Apparel through Research & Training) Centres set up specially for implementation of the training programme and over 12,000 candidates under long-term programmes through ATDC Vocational Institutes. 
 
ATDC has been also recognized by the “UK India Skill Forum Award 2011”, citing ATDC’s outstanding commitment to the Skills Agenda in the apparel sector by providing employable skills to youth, women and disadvantaged sections of the Society.
 
The ‘ Skilling & Upskilling’ journey by  ATDC having a massive target of 2,50,000 candidates in 5 years has been showcased in ‘Hunar ki Hunkar’- Exhibition-cum-Display, a 2 day event held on 20th & 21st February 2014, at Exhibition Halls (A, B & C), Apparel House, Gurgaon. Hunar ki Hunkar captured and showcased various facets of the massive skilling mission including mobilization efforts, Training of Trainers (TOT), ‘Hunar se Rozgar’ (Job Fair / Rozgar Mela), Skill Competitions (Hunarbaaz), Hunkar ka Safar etc. 
 
“Tech Talk Sessions” to address key issues on Innovations in Technology, Enhancing Productivity, and Addressing Skill Gaps in the Apparel Industry etc. were also part of the event.
 
The ATDC ‘Hunar ki Hunkar’ was inaugurated by Chief Guest Hon’ble Union Minister of Textiles, Dr K S Rao who also released ‘ATDC Visualouge 2014’-skill journey of ATDC on the occasion.  Dr. KS Rao lauded the efforts of ATDC in achieving massive target of training 1,00,000 youth and for now gearing up to complete over 1,50,000 people in the next 3 years and the employment linkages created especially for youth and women.
