At the recent national workshop on Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS) in New Delhi, Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) DG and CEO Dr. Darlie Koshy, described ISDS as the driver of growth in India's textile sector.

As a panellist, Dr. Koshy spoke about skill forecasting, skill benchmarking and skill technology focus used for ISDS. He expressed his views and shared key solutions to the challenges on employment opportunities under ISDS, ATDC said in a statement.

“The scheme has experienced significant progress over the last 5 years and ATDC is part of this journey since Inception. The scheme has not only helped to overcome the shortage of skilled workforce in textile sector due to high rate of attrition but also become a 'driver of growth' in the Industry. It has triggered innovation and scale which are important for a competitive and sustainable textile and apparel Industry in India,” he said.

Experts at the workshop discussed key solutions to various challenges such as migration of trainees from native place to workplace, non-standardized wages and market demand for courses in which the candidates have received training.

The Textile Ministry launched the project in association in 2011 in association with ATDC, which was selected as a nodal agency for the project. ISDS scheme was launched with the objective to build the capabilities of those institutions that currently provide training and skill development programs in the textile and apparel sectors.

Till date, 76 projects have been approved under the ISDS scheme. A total of 3,215 training centres work under this scheme and have trained 4,15,541 candidates. Under the ISDS scheme government provides assistance to the extent of 75 per cent of the project cost with a ceiling of Rs. 10,000 per person and target placement of at least 70 per cent of trainees in wage employment. ATDC has set up over 200 centres across India and have trained over 1,56,000 candidates. (SH)
