Sikkim imparts training in screen printing

The Sikkim Consultancy Centre, Gangtok has organized a Skill Development Programme on Screen Printing at Gangtok with an aim to provide skill training to the people of the region and thereby open new employment avenues for them.

The three-week programme that commenced with 21 participants would go on till December 19 and efforts would also be made to get placement for these trainees.

The Skill Development Initiatives (SDI) envisage growth, promotion or broadening the horizons of the skills that the trainees already possess, and are mostly intended for rural people who are hunting for paid employment or sources of income through individual efforts or through group activities.

Pursuant to such initiative, two to six week programmes are held depending on the nature of the activity, to train people in the art and acquaint them with other necessary information.

Various activities like carpet weaving, preparing jute handicrafts, handloom items, tailoring and readymade garments are taught through such programmes which are being conducted in the State, with assistance of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD).

According to NABARD, there is a dire need to tap the huge potential in growth of farm and non-farm industries of Sikkim and SDI is playing a major part in generating new job opportunities in the State.

NABARD has suggested that well-known business persons can also be called upon to extend assistance for imparting training to trainees in existing units. Moreover, assistance provided by various rural financial institutions that are closely related with trade and industry could also prove effective.

Artisans, members of credit or economic activity groups, people associated with farm and non-farm activities, including those in the service sector, unskilled or semi-skilled workers and unemployed youth, all stand eligible for receiving support under SDI.

Besides, specific target groups like retired or disabled soldiers, war widows, ex-servicemen and deprived classes like prisoners released from jail and rag pickers could also be supported through these programmes.
