16 State Governments Sign MoU with Textiles Ministry to Impart Skill Training to Workers


Eighteen States have agreed to partner with the Ministry under the scheme out of which Jammu & Kashmir and Odisha were not present during function.

The agencies nominated by the State Governments will train four lakh people. After the training, the candidates will be placed at the textile units.

Union Minister of Textiles and Women and Child Development, Smriti Zubin Irani, said that the signing of MoUs with State Governments shows the commitment of the Ministry to extend its support to the state agency and make them equal partners for building the spirit of national development to boost the textiles sector.

The targets set out by some of the States like Tamil Nadu and Jharkhand are much below the requirement of skilled workers in the textiles industry in those states and urged them to relook at the targets.
