Punjab government will soon set up two ‘Apparel Skill Training Centres’ in the state to impart training to women, who would train the womenfolk in their respective villages and surrounding areas and enable them to earn their lively hood with honour and dignity. The state-of-the-art centres would come up at Mohali and at Bathinda, where free-of cost training would be imparted to the women. A decision to this effect was taken by the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal during his meeting with senior government officers and representatives of different government technical training institutes here, said an official release. Badal asked Principal Secretary Industries to work out a comprehensive plan for establishing these two special institutes for providing skill training to the female trainers, who would further train the womenfolk in their respective villages and surrounding areas thereby enabling them to earn their lively hood with honour and dignity. The Chief Minister also gave his nod to constitute a committee under the Chairmanship of Principal Secretary Industries and Commerce for finalising this project. It was also proposed by Badal that under this project six month certificate course and one year diploma course would be initiated. He further asked the department to chalk out academic as well as other modalities pertaining to providing free hostel facilities to the trainees.
