Tiruppur
Exporters Association (TEA) will train 16,508 persons under the Scheme for
Capacity Building in Textile Sector for employment in the garment export units.

According
to
Raja M. Shanmugham, president of the
Association
, the plan is to start the 45-day training for new workers in
January at 75 units that are recognised for this project.

The
workers will be absorbed in the units after the training. They will get a
stipend during the training period under the scheme. The training will be for
five activities, such as sewing and quality check.

 With
good orders, the industry is in need for more workers. The association has
sought time till March 2022 to complete training for all the 16,508 workers as
it is difficult to get new workers now because of the spread of COVID-19. It
has also submitted a proposal to the Central and State governments seeking a
project to upskill the existing workers in the entire workers for a year. “If
we get approval for this, it will be a pilot project in Tiruppur,” he said.

Shanmugham
said the major advantages of training are that it will help enhance the
productivity, reduction of waste, and boost the confidence of the workers.
