Towel & bed wear sector to enjoy benefit of SMOT scheme

Government is planning to introduce Stitching Machine Operators' Training (SMOT) scheme in towel and bed wear sector in order to remove the shortage of skilled labourers.

It has constituted three committees to think over possibility to extend training facilities to these sectors.

Associations related to the sector have also been asked to prepare training modules and find out areas that require more attention.

SMOT scheme was introduced in June last year to train workers of garment industry and was later extended to woven sector.

Now, garment sector is also trying to provide training to supervisors and machine mechanics to increase their skills.

Government has already allotted PKR96 million for training programme under Export Development Fund (EDF).

Moreover, they would train 20,000 to 25,000 workers to boost declining textile exports of the country.

According to estimates, training cost for two months is about Rs10,000. Out of total training cost, half of the cost is covered under EDF and remaining is shared by the unit which imparts training.
