The National Skill Development Council (NSDC) has trained 1,000 workers from across various mills in Tamil Nadu. The workers who completed training in last 2 months received certificates at a job mela oganised by the Indian Texpreneurs Federation (ITF). The training programme is a part of the Prime Minister Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) version II.

At the mela, candidates also received appointment orders. More than 100 member mills from across Tamil Nadu were present in the mela.

"Uniqueness of this PMKVY scheme is that for the first time in the history, work methods and training procedures are standardised across India. Also, after training workers, skill level will be uniform and also at maximum efficiency," said ITF convenor Prabhu Damodaran, adding that the training is an effort to increase the efficiency of the workers.

"Advantage of this scheme is that now manufacturing units can register directly as training centres and create an internal infrastructure for training. This will help Tamil Nadu textile sectors in a big way. We thank the skill development ministry and NSDC for this wonderful scheme and my appreciation to the team in ITF for executing this project in a systematic manner," said Raja Shanmugham, president, Tirupur Exporters’ Association.

"In pilot phase, ITF member mills trained 18,500 workers and now with this special project, planning to train and employ 50,000 workers. In job mela, hundreds of candidates participated to register for training. More than 170 candidates received appointment orders in various mills. This scheme is a perfect opportunity for industry to train workers in a more scientific way and also to get a portion of spending cost on training as reimbursement from NSDC," said Elango, board member ITF.
