CEO's Message

Since its establishment on July 15, 2015, under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Skill India Mission by the Government of India has remained steadfast in its commitment to empowering the nation’s youth through comprehensive skill development, upskilling, and reskilling initiatives. Guided by the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, the Apparel, Made-ups & Home Furnishing Sector Skill Council (AMHSSC) persistently endeavours to revolutionize skill training in the apparel sector, striving to create aspirational and market-oriented opportunities for candidates.

With India's demographic profile boasting a young generation, with 65% of our population below 35, I am honoured to share our vision and commitment as the newly appointed CEO of AMHSSC towards empowering our youth with skills that transcend boundaries and create opportunities within India and globally. The Council’s primary aim is to equip youth with future-ready skills, enabling them to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving job landscape, particularly in the apparel sector. We aim to foster a skilled workforce proficient in job-specific expertise and essential soft skills, language proficiency, digital literacy, and financial acumen.

Recognizing the significance of staying updated with technological advancements and market dynamics, we actively advocate for management development programs aligned with the latest industry trends to ensure our workforce remains competitive and adaptable.

Gender mainstreaming remains a key focus area for us. We are committed to empowering Indian rural women, bridging gender gaps, and fostering inclusivity within the apparel sector, making them independent contributors to our economy. The Council's ultimate goal is to position the Indian workforce as a formidable presence on the global stage. Through strategic initiatives, comprehensive training, and relentless dedication, AMHSSC aims to cultivate a workforce that is not only competent but also innovative and resilient.

I sincerely thank all stakeholders for their support and dedication. Let's empower our youth, build a skilled India, and shape a brighter future for generations to come.
