Cuts are in the air for a while.
Cuts that are going to be big for India’s waist, though, aren’t going to happen anytime soon.
In fact, the country’s waist training industry will take another hit as the country moves to the new health guidelines in 2022.
In 2017, India’s Health Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said the new guidelines will mean waist training will be a “low-risk” profession, but he later clarified that there are no plans for any “surgical” waist training.
Now, though the country is still working out what the new regulations will look like, some industry experts are wondering if the government might be in trouble for making waist training mandatory in some industries.
According to industry sources, waist trainers in India have long been under-supplied.
The industry has seen a massive decline in the number of women entering it.
In 2016, the National Medical Association of India (NMAI) reported that there were over 7.5 million women entering waist training in India.
And the number is expected to decline further.
According to an NMAI report, the industry is facing a huge shortfall of over 3.6 million women training in 2017.
This has left the industry scrambling to find more qualified trainers.
For example, a waist trainer in a city like Bengaluru could be a trainee in a private medical school, but she would need to train with someone who has the necessary qualifications.
For India’s medical industry, the waist trainer may be seen as a stepping stone to the private sector.
The Indian Medical Association (IMA), which represents all medical professionals, has also warned that a lack of qualified women is a serious problem that will have a significant impact on the country.
But the industry doesn’t need any more training to keep the business afloat.
“I don’t see it as a matter of time, if we don’t get more qualified women, the business will be destroyed,” said Kavita Gupta, CEO of the Indian Womens Fitness Association.
The issue is more acute in the private medical education sector.
There, there are also concerns over a shortage of qualified trainers, who are often reluctant to train women in the public sector because they don’t have the required credentials.
In a report to the government, the NMAA found that the private school sector, which has seen an increase in the numbers of women participating in its courses, has been “inflating enrolment figures.”
While the private education sector has been improving, it has been plagued by issues.
According to an IMA report, a shortage in qualified trainers and a “toxic” environment for the industry meant that many women graduates had to quit after a few years.
“The industry is struggling to retain qualified trainers,” said the IMA.
The government has promised to address the problem, but so far there has been no official response.
And in India’s private medical schools, many women are reluctant to take up the profession because they feel they’re under-qualified.
While training in the country has seen steady growth over the last decade, the number women entering private medical training is expected only to continue to increase.
According the IMT, the ratio of women attending private medical courses to the number trained in public medical schools has been increasing every year.
