The Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) has welcomed the skill development scheme announced by the Union Textiles Minister recently.

Chairman of the council Narain Aggarwal has said in a press release that the outlay of Rs. 1,300 crore for the scheme to cover the entire textile value chain would put the industry back on track.

Support agency

The Textile Committee would be the resource support agency for the programme and it would develop the content, specify the infrastructure needs, standardise the admission assessment certification, etc. The biometric process for selection of candidates, mandatory Aadhaar card and ensuring real time attendance would bring in effective implementation of the scheme.
