Growing focus on skill development and continuing government support is making more and more apparel exporters to focus on skill enhancement of their workers. Many exporters across India are involved in some skill development scheme which is benefiting their workers in turn.

Gurgaon-based apparel export house Modelama Exports is also one of them. It has launched RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) programme under PMKVY (Prime Minister Kaushal Vikas Yojana). Nearly 2500 workers of the company will be part of the effort.

Arvind Rai, Director, Modelama Exports informed that their workers are happy to be a part of this initiative. It not only provides workers recognition for their skill-set for various job-roles but also leads to their empowerment.

The company under the leadership of its Chairman Lalit Gulati, have a workforce of 7,000 workers and does an annual business of around Rs. 650 crore.

Anil Sahai, Director, Sentio Advisory who is conducting this initiative at Modelama Exports, shared that under this programme the employees will be certified for their skill & will be awarded the certificate upon clearing the assessment. The curriculum of the programme not only focuses on their skill but also orients employees about health, safety, ergonomics, and benefits they are entitled to. Therefore, the scheme also aligns with the CSR initiatives of overseas clients.
