The MoU was signed during a skill India event held in Kanpur recently. The training programme is a part of the Prime Minister Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) version II that will be carried out in the mills of Tamil Nadu. Already, 83 mills have applied for the programme and another 52 textile mills will be joining from January.
Talking of the benefits of organising a training programme at such a large level, ITF Secretary Prabhu Dhamodharan said, “This scheme will promote the transparency of operations which will improve the overall production of mill units. Also, it is an opportunity for newcomers to increase their efficiency and earn better income. This step will help the industry in the long run to improve the competitiveness of textile sector to strengthen the Make in India concept.”
“The training module is a combination of practical and theory knowledge. However, more emphasis will be laid on the practical aspects,” Dhamodharan told Fibre2Fashion.
The training scheme will incorporate biometric system to avoid overlap of training. “Each worker will be trained for a specific job role. We will be maintaining a record to keep a track of it,” he said.
The entire scheme is designed in a professional manner and each process from training to certification will be monitored and supported by Textile Sector Skill Council. The workers will be trained for 45 days in 15 job roles. Thereafter, 90 per cent of them will be offered employment after the certification process.
The pilot phase of PMKVY that was organised eight months back had trained 17,500 workers. Nearly 80 per cent of the trained workers were employed by the mills. (RR)
