Participant at a workshop on Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS) organized by the Ministry of Textiles at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, in collaboration with industry partners, have hailed the programme for improving their economic condition, according to an official statement.

“The training programme under ISDS has been able to show us a way for the future. My monthly income has improved from around 5000 rupees to more than 8000 rupees now. I am able to admit my children in a good school, take responsibility for them and support my husband. I am very grateful to the implementing agency and the Ministry of Textiles,” Ms. Mamta Negi, ISDS beneficiary told the audience at the workshop.

Shabnoor Siddiqui , another ISDS beneficiary from a small village in Uttar Pradesh said, “My personality has changed completely. I now want to take my monthly earning from the present 7000 to 7 lakh rupees. I want to set up my training institute and train other girls, and enable them to craft a brighter future.”

Delivering the keynote address, Textiles Minister Santosh Gangwar said that the example of these girls can be a powerful motivating force for many. The Minister said that we need to utilize the untapped potential of our people. He said that almost everyone today wants to work and earn. Thanking the industry partners, the Minister exhorted them to look upon skilling as a responsibility we all have to fulfill.

Underscoring the importance of skill development, the Minister said that India needs a total of six crore skilled people in the textile sector by 2022. He said that a change in mind-set has been brought about by the new Government under the leadership of Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. The Minister said that the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is a step in this direction.

“We have to go to the person in need; skilling programmes have to reach those in need of them. This area of work is not confined to cities, but extends to villages and remote corners of the country as well,” Gangwar said.

The Minister spoke of the need for training programmes to be linked with microfinance, so that those wanting to start enterprises on their own upon completion of training, get some financial assistance.

Expressing happiness at the employment of large number of women in the textile and allied sectors, he hoped that the workshop would give a new direction to the Integrated Skill Development Scheme and take it forward with renewed vigour. (SH)
