Perfect Sourcing - - Cover Story -

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.
