The government has partnered with 157 textile industries, industry associations, 16 central and state government agencies and three sectoral organisations to undertake training programmes under Scheme for Capacity Building in Textiles Sector (SAMARTH).

In a statement issued Tuesday, the textiles ministry said that 43 new implementing partners have been empanelled under under the scheme with an additional training target of 75,000 beneficiaries and 5% increment in support to implementing partners.

“The funding pattern has also been revised with an increment of 5% in cost norms, which will give much needed additional financial support to industries imparting skill under this scheme,” the ministry said

Out of the skilling target of 4.72 lakh beneficiaries allocated so far, 1.88 lakh beneficiaries have been provided training. More than 85% of the beneficiaries trained so far under the scheme are women. More than 70% of the beneficiaries trained in organized sector courses have been provided placement, according to the statement.

The scheme aims to incentivise and supplement the efforts of the industry in creating jobs in the organised textile and related sectors. SAMARTH also caters to the upskilling/ re-skilling requirement of traditional textile sectors such as handloom, handicraft, silk and jute.
