Tamil Nadu to launch skill building programme for weavers
The Tamil Nadu Textile Sector Skill Council will launch a programme to upgrade the skills of 1.5 lakh weavers and workers in the textile industry in the state at the Global Textile Expo starting in Coimbatore on January 27, council chairman T Rajkumar said recently. Tamil Nadu chief minister K Palaniswami will inaugurate the three-day exhibition.

The council would train 25,000 handloom weavers, 50,000 in the power loom sector, 25,000 in spinning mills, 15,000 in knitting and 10,000 workers in processing under different courses, a report in top business daily quoted Rajkumar as saying.

Certificate awarded to the weavers and textile workers attending the course would help them get subsidised loans and the benefits of the central government’s scheme of 75 per cent financial assistance to set up looms. (DS)
