Training programme for unskilled textile workers in Surat

Nov '11
The Powerloom Service Centre (PSC) has begun a 20-day training programme for unskilled textile workers in Surat, home to India's biggest man-made fibre (MMF) industry.

The training programme has been launched under the 'Integrated Skill Development Scheme for the Textile and Apparel Sector' of the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, in view of the acute shortage of skilled workforce faced by Surat's powerloom sector.

Under the programme, unskilled workers employed in Surat's powerloom sector would be trained in five segments – basic weaving, fitter training, textile and fabric design, embroidery operator training, and skill development in shuttleless weaving.

The training in the first four segments will be of 20 days duration each, while skill development in shuttleless weaving will be of 30 days duration.

Workers undergoing training need to have minimum of 75 percent attendance during the period and have to score above 50 percent marks in skill evaluation.

The short-term training courses are expected to encourage unskilled workers to upgrade their skills and help them perform better.
