A meeting of stakeholders on Samarth – Scheme for Capacity Building in Textile Sector –was held in New Delhi to familiarise the stakeholders about the scheme and its guidelines. The meeting was chaired by Union minister of textiles Smriti Irani. The scheme was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on December 20 last year.
 
The broad objective of the scheme, under the Skill India Mission, is to skill the youth for gainful and sustainable employment in the textile sector covering the entire value chain of textiles, excluding spinning and weaving.
 
“The concerns of the stakeholders and challenges faced by them during implementation of the previous scheme were discussed in the meeting. Feedback from the concerned stakeholders on how the scheme can contribute and benefit the textile industry and boost skill development in the respective sector was also discussed,” an official release said.
 
The scheme is intended to provide demand driven, placement oriented National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) compliant skilling programmes to incentivise and supplement the efforts of the industry in creating jobs in the textiles sector. The scheme targets to train 10 lakh persons (9 lakh in organised and 1 lakh in traditional sector) over a period of 3 years (2017-20), with an outlay of ₹1,300 crore.
 
The guidelines of the scheme were released on April 23, 2018. (RKS)
