In a letter to union minister for textiles Kavuru Sambasiva Rao, Tewari said, given the scope of garment and textile industry in Ludhiana there was a dire need to set up such an institution that could provide trained manpower locally.

Tewari further said: “Knitwear industry, comprising around 1,300 medium and small scale enterprises, supplies their produce not only to every part of the country but also exports and earn valuable foreign exchange.”

“While this is so,” he added, “the knitwear industry experiences acute shortage of qualified professionals with designing skills, even though there is abundance of youth who are interested to be groomed in the knitwear manufacturing.”

“Hence, there is an immediate need of imparting training to the youth and making them competent enough in designing skills,” he added.
