Samarth scheme to train 10 lakh Indians in textile sector
Apr '18
The Indian ministry of textiles recently launched the ‘Samarth’ scheme in the organised and traditional textile clusters to develop skills among the youth to help them get gainful and sustainable employment. The scheme was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), which recently met under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Samarth scheme aims to impart skills to nearly 10 lakh young people in the organized and traditional textile sectors over three years, said Synthetic and Rayon Textile Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) chairman Narain Agarwal.

The Indian Government has earmarked a budget of ₹ 1,300 crore covering the entire textile value chain, except spinning and weaving, according to a report in a top Indian English-language daily.

The scheme 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 (MSDE).

The scheme also will ensure 70 per cent placement of successful trainees. (DS)
