Backward districts in the state of Orissa such as Kandhamal and Koraput would see the establishment of a mobile Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC), as the state government plans to set up such centres in these districts, with an objective to enhance the employability skill of people dwelling here.

As per the State Textile and Handloom Minister, Anjali Behera, currently there is only one ATDC in Bhubaneswar and the satellite centres at Berhampur, Sambalpur, Cuttack, Baripada and Rourkela.

Such mobile centres will prove to be helpful for the people residing in the interior regions of the state. ATDC has imparted training to around 1,000 people so far, many of those are now working in clothing industries in Delhi, Mumbai, Surat, Bangalore, Silvassa and Tirupur, added the Minister.

About 530 trainees, who are the riot victims and surrendered Maoists from Kandhamal, have received jobs after passing out from ATDCs. Big apparel industry players such as Arvind, Shahai, Unisource Trend, Poppys, Knitware, Victus and Sava offer jobs to the ATDC trainees, informed Arati Ahuja, Secretary State handloom.
