Textiles and clothing sector plays an important role in the economy of our country. It contributes around 4% to the GDP, 12% to the export earnings and most importantly the sector is the second largest employment generator in the country after agriculture. As envisaged in the Vision Document 2024-25, an additional 35 million jobs would get created upto 2025. This stupendous number of 35 million jobs require adequate training infrastructure for skilling of the people. In this context, there is a need to assess the training infrastructure available in our country especially for the textiles and clothing sector and project the requirement till 2024-25.
