Haryana’s skill training covers textile too
The Haryana Government’s Skill Development and Industrial Training Department is considering providing skill training to about 1,33,100 youth this fiscal as part of efforts to augment employment opportunities in the State. The sectors include garment and textiles, beauty and wellness, agriculture and retail.
The Haryana Skill Development Mission (HSDM) will impart training to 50,000 and the remaining will be trained by different government departments. Out of the 50,000 targeted by HSDM, 14,000 would receive training under the centrally-sponsored state-managed component of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) and 5,000 through driver training schools.
There is also a proposal to set up branches of the National Institute of Fashion Technology, National Institute of Design (NID), Multi Skill Development Centre, Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra (PMKK) and India International Skill Centre (IISC) in the State.
