Diploma courses to continue at handloom institute

The Indian Institute of Handloom Technology at Salem will continue to offer diploma courses in handloom and textile technology. Union textiles minister Smriti Irani has issued orders to permit admissions to diploma courses after considering several representations demanding continuation of the courses.

The ministry had last year decided to upgrade the diploma course into 4-year B.Tech course and discontinue the diploma. Post this decision, the ministry received several representations to also continue the diploma courses as they are more affordable to poor weaver community.

“After considering the representations, the ministry has now decided to revive the diploma course in the interest of children from handloom weaving families. This has resolved an important local demand of weaver community,” the textiles ministry said in a statement.

As per the new decision, the diploma course will be available in addition to 4-year B.Tech course. The ministry of textiles will create additional infrastructure to enable running of both the courses simultaneously.

The pass-outs of the diploma course have been providing qualified manpower for carrying out various developmental activities for handloom sector. (RKS)
