Pakistan’s textiles secretary Syed Iftikhar Hussain Babaron recently launched the 3rd phase of the Stitching Machine Operator Training (SMOT) programme at the Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers & Exporters Association’s (PHMA) Institute of Knitwear Technology in Karachi. Rupees 33 million has been allocated for this phase, which will train 1,800 unskilled workers.

Under this two-month program, workers will be trained through the PHMA institutes in Karachi and Lahore, institutes of the Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA) and through some industrial units in Punjab, according to Pakistani media reports.

Underprivileged candidates will receive a stipend of Rs 5,000 per month.

Babaron said this phase is a follow up of the textiles ministry’s initiative taken up in June 2006 to provide textile industry workforce with value-added skills, according to PHMA. Under SMOT-I and SMOT-II programs, 8,500 workers were trained from 2006 to 2011. (DS)
