NEW DELHI: The Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC) has opened a window of opportunity to train students belonging to the backward community in the apparel sector.
ATDC, sponsored by the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) of the Ministry of Textiles, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Backward Classes Finance & Development Corporation (NBCFDC).
Under this, the Corporation would sponsor candidates from the backward community to the various centres of the ATDC. This would ensure that the students belonging to the backward community would get immediate employment and the apparel industry throughout the country would get additional trained manpower.
As the need for trained manpower has increased manifold in the post-quota regime governing global trade in textiles and clothing, this move would benefit the domestic textile and clothing industry,
The MoU was signed by Mr K.K. Jalan, Secretary General, AEPC/ATDC and Mr A.A. Naqvi, Managing Director, NBCFDC here, an AEPC press release issued here on August 20 said.
