Dr Arindam Basu, while welcoming the guests, mentioned that today NITRA is offering many industry oriented programs on regular, part-time and distance learning modes, covering the areas such as textile manufacturing, designing, merchandising, and quality assurance. He informed that at present NITRA has more than 2,400 pass out who are working in over 100 renowned apparel and textiles exports companies.

RL Nolkha opined that the availability of skilled manpower for textile industry is quite inadequate hence the training programs offered by NITRA are very useful for the industry. He expressed happiness over NITRA’s excellent placement record.

Sanjay Jain advised the young students to become hardworking and quick learner. He opined that if someone works extra for the company, it is not only the company that benefits alone but the employee himself benefits in the long run. He mentioned that the benefit of the company is temporary in this case whilst the value added to the employee’s skill remains forever.

Jain also encouraged the students to think out of the box and do things in innovatively different ways. He wished every success for the pass-out students while they work in industry.
