NIFT-TEA can undertake the task of making Tiruppur cluster a zero defect hub with a little assistance from stakeholders. According to a study by the institute, about 2 lakh employees need to be upskilled in the cluster.
Over 80 per cent of the units in Tiruppur are MSMEs and cannot undertake initiatives for efficiency improvements. There is a huge scope for improving the operations of these MSMEs, but they do not take the professional approach owing to their small size, knowledge levels and cost absorption capacity, Raja M Shanmugham, president of Tiruppur Exporters' Association (TEA) told a leading daily.
Shanmugham said that to make the cluster a zero defect manufacturing hub, a state-funded intitiative needs to be undertaken. A 10 per cent reduction in defects and wastage can be expected to save close to Rs 2,000 crore a year.
The upskilling cost will be about Rs 124 crore, according to NIFT-TEA. (KD)
