    Carding Operator

  • International Comparability

    Attempt was made to understand the international standards followed under this qualification pack. The principles of the European, Australian and Canadian NOSs were followed but there was no exact qualification pack found for Carding Operator. Canadian NOS covers in parts Textile Industry but Carding Operatorhas not been kept as a different job role. It is important to note that most of these countries who have defined NOS do not have a very large textile industry. However numeracy, literacy and basic science levels have been considered during the preparation of NOS in order to match with the existing Indian industry requirements. It is also to be noted that a large section of this industry having fulfilled the stringent export norms, justifies the standardisation of such a qualification pack The source of this comparison has been based on the desk research and TSC would undertake evaluation of the same through other suggested modes.
