In India’s textile sector, several skill-development projects and programmes have been developed. As part of the Integrated Skill Development Scheme, 11.14 lakh individuals were trained in textiles and apparel, jute, spinning, weaving, technical textiles, sericulture, handloom, and handicrafts, with 8.43 lakh employed. Samarth is a programme that attempts to teach young people in the textile business so that they may find profitable and long-term employment. A total of ten lakh people are planned to be taught, including nine lakh from the organised sector and one lakh from the traditional sector.
As a result, the system covers the whole textile value chain (except spinning and weaving in the organised sector). Textiles and handlooms, as well as handicrafts and carpets, will be among the highlights of the event. District-level tailoring opportunities for women will be identified as part of the skilling outreach across states. A few courses and modules in the field of garment manufacture have been established by Samarth. Women constitute about 75% of the labour in the textile sector. Promoting the growth of traditional handloom, handicraft, sericulture, and jute industries is also on the agenda.
It also strives to guarantee that all segments of the population have access to a stable source of income, whether through work or self-employment.
