South Gujarat Textile Processors' Association (SGTPA) has decided to rope in around 5,000 youths dwelling in tribal districts of Dang and Tapi, into the industry by May 2011, by providing them suitable training.

This social move of the association will prove to be helpful for the industry to overcome labour shortage as well as for the tribal people to receive employment and will commence from May 2010.

After receiving training for one month, participants of the program will be absorbed in any of the 450 process houses in the region.

SGTPA President Mr. Pramod Chaudhary said that the unemployment rate in this district is very high and daily earning of the people who are employed is just Rs.50. While in textile industry minimum daily wage is Rs100, he added.

Textile industry is facing huge labour crunch, while the recruitment of migratory labourers from Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh has also reduced to a large extent compared to previous years, said Mr. Chaudhary.

He further said that tribal women could also avail benefit from the embroidery sector that is opening up in a bigger manner in the textile sector. The association has also decided to absorb 400 women workers.

Resident women of these tribal districts will bring embroidery work home from the centres opened at the district headquarters or other bigger towns. SGPTA intends to open four centres in these tribal districts of Dang and Tapi.

Mr. Chaudhary informed that a survey in this regard has been started and the training program will commence from the fist week of May. Minimum 11,250 tribal youths can get employment; if average 25 workers are employed in one dyeing mill, said another SGTPA member.
