AVAILABILITY OF LABOUR
The garment manufacturing industry has been flourishing in the state for more than 35 years and therefore a trained pool of manpower is now available. Youngsters in the area are also inclined towards becoming part of the industry.
The state has 1,050 colleges, including 80 engineering colleges, 58 polytechnic institutes and 846 industrial training institutes (ITIS). Jaipur is ranked 3rd in India in ‘Ease of Doing Business’ in a World Bank Report on India.
As far as labour is concerned, labourers are readily available from nearby villages. The state also has adequate power. In the last few years a lot of labour has shifted to major towns like Delhi, Noida, Ahmedabad in a search for better facilities and pay. On an average, a worker easily gets around Rs 15,000 pm for stitching work for eight hours a day and a cutting master can earn upto Rs 20,000 pm in Jaipur. So the notion that Jaipur is cheap and non-efficient is just a phrase now. With the installation of latest technologies, compliant units, colleges and exporters working on design and quality, the antiquated thoughts about Jaipur have undergone a complete change.
