DHUBRI, July 24: There are ample of opportunities lying ahead for the trainees who have undergone a six-week training on tural fibre diversified products. This was stated by the Director of Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship, Monoj Kumar Das while addressing a certificate-distribution function held at Shankardev Institute of Skill Development and Magement here recently.
Das said that it was matter of regret that phulam gamosa, xarai, fish, eggs and many other items worth several crores come to Assam from different States of the country, which could be easily produced in the State if youths came forward and took the challenge to become entrepreneurs.
“A big opportunity is knocking on the door for the youths who want to stand on their own feet, so I appeal to the youths to cash in on the opportunities offered by the State and Central governments to adopt skill in diversified fields,” Das added.
Speaking on the occasion, Dhubri district BJP president Dipak Kumar Saha also appealed to the trainees who had completed their training successfully to start their production units with fincial assistance from banks.
“Proper marketing for the products remains a challenging task for beginners, so I appeal to the institutions engaged in this programme to look into the marketing possibilities to encourage the new entrants in this field,” Saha said.
Chairman of an NGO -Kota Education and Charitable Trust, Sanjive Saha said that products had vast marketing fields in the country and abroad as well, provided the products were of good quality with proper finishing.
“I have seen the items produced during the period of training by the trainees. They are okay but all the trainees must give stress on improving the quality because quality products made of ba, jute coir and water hyacinth fibres have a huge demand in ture-friendly countries across the world. So your emphasis should only on improving the quality,” Saha appealed. The function was also addressed by Principal of Bholath College, Dr. Dhruba Chakrabortty and chairperson of Dhubri Municipal Board, Toma Das. The six-week programme was conducted by course director Biraj Das, programme officer Ratul Kumar Das and programme coorditors Rat Kanta Sarma and Bitul Borah, while technical training was imparted by Joy Sharma and Ashok Sarkar.
Talking to The Sentinel, programme coorditor Rat Kanta Sarma informed that for two weeks, 25 trainees had undergone soft-skill classes conducted by college professors, agriculture officers and successful entrepreneurs.
“During the four weeks’ technical session, trainees were imparted training on how to prepare ba, jute coir and water hyacinth fibre from the raw stage and to make different kinds of products and items like bags, carpets, doormats and wall hangings,” Sarma added.
