New scheme for capacity building in Indian textiles sector
India’s Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given its nod for a new skill development scheme covering the entire value chain of the textile sector excluding spinning and weaving in organised sector. The ‘Scheme for Capacity Building in Textile Sector (SCBTS)’ will have an outlay of Rs 1,300 crore till 2019-20.

“SCBTS will have National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) compliant training courses with funding norms as per the common norms notified by ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship,” an official statement said.

The objectives of the scheme are to provide demand driven, placement oriented skilling programme to incentivise the efforts of the industry in creating jobs in the organised textile and related sectors; to promote skilling and skill upgradation in the traditional sectors through respective sectoral divisions/organisations of ministry of textiles; and to provide livelihood to all sections of the society across the country.

The skilling programmes would be implemented through textile industry/units in order to meet the in-house requirement of manpower; reputed training institutions relevant to textile sector having placement tie-ups with textile industry/units; and institutions of ministry of textiles/state governments having placement tie-ups with textile industry/units.

The scheme will be implemented for the benefit of all sections of the society across the country including rural, remote, LWE affected, North East, and J&K by imparting skills in the identified job roles. Preference will be given to various social groups, SC, ST, differently abled, minorities and other vulnerable groups.

Under previous scheme of skill development implemented by the ministry of textiles in the 12th five-year plan period, more than 10 lakh people were trained of which more than 70 per cent were women. Considering that the apparel industry, a major segment to be covered under the scheme, employs majorly women (about 70 per cent), the trend is likely to be continued in the new scheme.

Around 10 lakh people are expected to be skilled and certified in various segments of textile sector through the scheme, out of which 1 lakh will be in traditional sectors. (RKS)
