From the Chairman's Desk
Dear youngsters,

Shri Ramesh Kumar JainSince the time NITRA was set up by Govt. of India and the textile industry in 1974, developing corporate leaders for the industry, through education and training activities, has always been a priority.  To augment our existing education activities to the next level, NITRA has established a new hub of professional excellence NITRA Technical Campus (NTC), an institute dedicated to attain academic heights by nurturing corporate professionals for tomorrow. For the year 2013-14, NTC is offering 3 programs in the areas of Engineering & Technology (Textile Tech. and CSE) and Management (PDGM-Fashion Retail Management).

The Indian Textile Industry has an overwhelming presence in the economic life of the country.  The US$ 70 billion Indian Textile Industry is likely to become a US$ 220 billion by 2020. The industry contributes 14% to industrial production, 12% to export earnings, 4% to the GDP and provides direct employment to 35 million people in the country. It is estimated that the textile sector will generate an additional 10 million direct employment by 2020.

The IT-BPO sector has become one of the most significant growth catalysts for the Indian economy with landmark contribution in the areas of exports, FDI and employment generation. Poised to become a US$ 225 billion industry by 2020, the Indian IT industry has played a key role in putting India into global map.

Fashion and Retail areas are currently the hotspurs in Indian industry. The Indian retail market has seen considerable growth in the organized segment. It is estimated that the total retail sales will grow from over US$ 400 billion to US$ 800 billion by 2015. Major corporates like Reliance, Tata, Bharti, Adani Enterprise, have been investing considerably in the booming Indian retail sector, besides a number of transnational corporations that have also set up retail chains in collaboration with Indian companies. Fashion and accessories is the largest category in organized retail and enjoys almost 40% share. The segment has driven the retail boom in India and has opened many opportunities for large as well as global retailers to enter the segment. In addition to domestic giants Pantaloons, Shoppers Stop, Kouton and the likes, global retail giants like ZARA, GAP, Gucci, Levi’s, UCB, Marks & Spencer and many more have opened their stores in India, and also have plans to increase their presence.

So friends, in a situation like this, I am very sure that your association with NITRA Technical Campus will bring rich dividends in your life and will help you become a successful professional of tomorrow.
