We are delighted to inform you that CITI is implementing skill development training under Samarth Scheme in partnership with Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India. CITI herby request its prominent industry members to take benefit of this opportunity by your participation under the scheme.  Your support and participation will help the scheme to achieve its goal to bridge the prevailing skill gap of the industry.

Samarth (Scheme for Capacity Building in Textile Sector) is a flagship skill development scheme approved in continuation to the Integrated Skill Development Scheme for 12th FYP, Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs. The industry is facing shortage of skilled workers and provides many opportunities for unemployed youth in the country who are trained in the sector. To address the issue, Central government of India has launched Scheme for Capacity Building in Textile Sector (SCBTS) and named it SAMARTH Scheme. The objectives of the scheme are to provide demand-driven, placement-oriented skilling programme to incentivize the efforts of the industry in creating jobs in the organized textile and related sectors to promote skilling and skill up-gradation in the traditional sectors through respective sectoral divisions/organizations of Ministry of Textile; and to provide livelihood to all sections of the society across the country.

CITI works as an interface between the Government of India and Industry. It helps government in providing policy inputs to the government and simultaneously support the textile and clothing sector by protecting their interests by bringing amendments in government policies.
