Following is an excerpt from a PTI report in Hindu Business Line.
At least three more Apparel Training and Design Centres (ATDC) will be set up in Orissa. The proposed centers will be set up jointly by the Apparel Export Promotion Council (APEC) under union ministry of textiles and state government at Baripada, Cuttack and Sambalpur very soon.
…according to handlooms and textile secretary, Ms Arati Ahuja.
The APEC is now running three ATDCs at Bhubaneswr, Berhampur and Rourkeal with 100 per cent placement guarantee.
… Almost all the students who passed out from the Bhubaneswar centre have got placement, said Ms Lopamudra Das, head of the Bhubaneswar center.
The placement was made in reputed garment companies, she said.
In a related news in Expressbuzz, the recently established Indian Institute of Handloom Technology at Baragarh seems to be going through teething problems. Following is an excerpt.
… The IIHT was established here after much struggle last year as there was an inordinate delay in identifying and handing over the land for the institute. As work on the required infrastructure is far from over, it is now being mooted to hold the final year classes for the IIHT course at Salem. Ever since its inception, the IIHT has been operating on Panchayat College premises here.
As required by the IIHT officials, the institute was provided with classrooms, hostel for students besides four staff quarters. It was hoped that the infrastructure would be readied soon and the institute would be shifted to its new premises at Bhatli Road. But more than a year has passed and only a boundary wall has come up.
… Meanwhile, District Collector Suresh Prasad Padhy has apprised the Secretary, Higher Education of the slow pace of work at IIHT which is likely to be completed by 2013. …

The web ad at http://aepcindia.com/atdc/atdcAdmissionNotice.html only mentions ATDC Bhubaneswar. I guess the centers at Berhampur and Rourkela are satellite centers. Earlier there was also plan for satellite centers in Baripada, Sambalpur and Cuttack. I guess they will start later.
There is an Institute of apparel management in Gurgaon in the outskirts of New Delhi.

As per the scheme, the initial capital expenditure of Rs 30 lakh for setting up the institution will be provided by State Government. The assistance will come from the State Employment Mission which works with the objective of skill generation for creating employability among rural and urban youths. The Government will also make available for the Centre floor area of 5,500- 7,500 sq feet suitable for undertaking training and housing equipments.

These five centres will able to generate about 5,000- 6,000 employment in the garment sector only and 20,00 -26,000 over the 11th plan period.

The 29th centre of ATDC is inaugurated in the State of Orissa ON 24.07.2007. Indeed the last few years, ATDC is streamlining its activities in tune with its objectives. From an initial strength of a mere 195 students training in 1996, number of students passing out last year has risen to 7500. Overall more than 23000 students have been trained in different centres of the ATDC, since its inception and around 5500 students are now undergoing training in different courses. The students trained at various centres of ATDCs are suitably employed in the garment industry and we are proposing to set up a total of 50 ATDC centres by December 2007 and to train a minimum of 25000 students per year. As part of institutional social responsibility and in specific development of the weaker section of the society and to provide them opportunities for a better livelihood, in collaboration with the National Backward Classes Finance & Development Corporation (NBCFDC) and National Scheduled Castes Finance & Development Corporation (NBCFDC), New Delhi, ATDC has tied up to impart training to OBC/SC candidates by signing MOU’s. …….. In fact, ATDC provides 100% placement for the students passing out from ATDC centres. Various industries / export houses situated in all over the country recruit our students. Indeed there is a huge demand for skilled human resources in the Apparel Industry, as the textile sector would generate employment opportunities for 17.35 million work force of which 5.2 million will be skilled and the textile sector is expected to attract an investment of 1,50,600 Crore by the end of 11th Five year plan. Indeed the growth of the industry has now accelerated to 10% per annum and it is expected to rise to 16% in coming years.
