The Indian textiles and clothing industry is poised to achieve a turnover of US$85 billion by 2010,
However, gap in the demand and the supply of skilled manpower is expected to be 2 million by 2010.
The present institutional structure is inadequate to meet this huge shortage of skilled manpower, both in quantitative and qualitative terms.
Also, with economy growing at a rate of 9% per annum, there is a need to ensure that this growth is inclusive, in order to have positive impact on poverty levels.
As apparel industry employs people at shop floor level with low levels of education and skills, specifically suited for women, there can be convergence between the requirement of skilled manpower for apparel industry and poverty alleviation objective of the Government.
This possibility of convergence has led to the birth of SPRING!

To train and place 5 lakh rural BPL youth in the next 5 years
