The ministry of textiles has introduced a dashboard for Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS) hosted on the NIC cloud to bring more transparency into the system. Information related to the progress of ISDS along with state-wise details of all live training programmes under the scheme will be opened for public view through the ministry’s website.

The dashboard was launched by Union minister of textiles Smriti Irani on the occasion of Good Governance Day on December 25 along with the JUTE-SMART tool and Bunkar Mitra-Handloom Helpline Centre.

The live information being sourced from MIS will be displayed in a separate page of Ministry’s website in a user friendly dashboard format giving State-wise, sector-wise, category-wise progress of training programmes under the scheme across the country. The drop down provision will facilitate downloading of state-wise details of training centres along with names of trainees undergoing training in respect of all live training centres under the scheme.

The proposed interactive provision in the Management Information System (MIS) will also enable any prospective trainee to identify the live training centre close to his native so as to enrol himself/herself for training. In addition, as part of this occasion, in order to utilize and harness the benefits of existing state-of- the-art secured Government cloud set up by NIC, ISDS-MIS presently hosted in a private cloud has been migrated to NIC cloud.

The strength of the textile industry, especially the textile and clothing sector, can be leveraged in two ways. While skilled workforce will provide competitive edge to the textile industry in the global market, it will also be a tool for participative and inclusive growth by providing job opportunities to the unemployed rural youth preferably below matriculates and from marginalised section of the societies. ISDS, the flagship demand driven placement linked skilling programme of the ministry is an initiative towards this direction.

The ministry is partnering with state government agencies, industry, major textile training institutions, textile research organizations and industry associations for implementing the scheme. Out of the 12th plan target of 15 lakh persons under the scheme, the ministry has so far trained a total of 8.82 lakh persons.

With an objective to ensure transparency in implementation and also to maintain accountability, the ministry has taken some measures. These include outcome based approach with mandatory placement of 70 per cent of trainees, MIS platform for ease of monitoring of implementation of training programme, biometric attendance of trainees, third party assessment of trainees after training, random physical verification of live training centres by field offices of ministry and QR code enabled e-certificates for trainees.
