The overall employment in the Indian textile and clothing sector is expected to increase from the current 33 to 35 million to about 60 to 62 million by 2022, according to a latest report.
 
‘Human Resource and Skill Requirements in the Textile Sector (2022) – A Report’ prepared by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) states that there would be an additional human resource requirement of about 25 million persons, of which the mainstream textile and clothing sector has the potential to employ around 17 million people incrementally till 2022.
 
The mainstream textile and clothing sector comprises of spinning, fabric manufacturing, fabric processing and garmenting. The related industries include handloom, woolen, sericulture, handicrafts and jute sectors.
 
“The human resource requirement in mainstream textile and clothing sector is expected to be closely related to market driven textile and apparel industry growth,” the report states.
 
However, the human resource requirement in areas such as handloom and handicrafts would have to be supplemented by initiatives from the Indian Government and the textile and apparel industry, according to the report.
 
It states that the total employment in fabric manufacturing in India is estimated to reach 11 million by 2022. Similarly, fabric processing is expected to employ 600,000 people, garmenting is estimated to employ around 16 million, while the employment in the spinning industry is expected to reach 3 million by 2022.
 
The addition of human resource into other related sectors would be at a much lower rate compared to the mainstream sectors due to need for significant support for earnings, scope for enhanced technology intervention and automation as compared to current levels, the need to add value, and attractiveness of the sector among the human resource supply, mentions the report.
