Since the field of technical textiles is relatively new and there are not many units operating in this sector, MANTRA has proposed to conduct more courses for entrepreneurs with the specific aim of creating awareness about technical textiles in the conventional textile sector. This is expected to play an indirect role in encouraging investment in technical textiles and consequently leading to increased man power demand. Accordingly a significant portion of the trainee output will be entrepreneur.
