- Public-private partnerships can promote industrial growth and generate employment: Dy CM Manish Sisodia

New Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia inaugurated Industrial Skill Development Project launched by the Department of Training and Technical Education in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Delhi Southend on Wednesday. The project envisages imparting free of cost industrial training to 500 underprivileged youth every year and providing them with employment opportunities in reputed industrial organisations.
The youth will come across various fields of industrial operations, including CNC machines, sewing machines, welding machines along with computer operations and soft-skill training. The trainees will be required to attend a training session for a duration of three months, with a limit of 32 students in each vocational course.
Dy, CM Manish Sisodia said, “Industries are aware about the latest machinery and operational technical advancements, they do not need to follow the slow procedures and processes of the government. Till the time government processes like audit, etc take place, the new advancements become old, which is an unfortunate event for the growth of any industry. The industries are then attacked by the officials on their expenditure incurred on machinery which are not relevant in the recent times. If the government associations can provide adequate infrastructure and the private enterprises can deploy employees in the public-private partnerships, it will be a win-win situation for the industrial growth. Government institutions can partner with many private players to boost industrial growth and generate more and more employment. The private players can garner growth and achievement with their associations and partnerships.”
IL&FS Skills Development Corporation Limited are the acting advisors of the program, and have been in this business since the past 12 years,l with 360 centres running across India. The syllabus has been devised by ILFS and the trainers involved in the project are professionally trained at existing centres of IL&FS.
The total cost of the project involves a sum of Rs1.94 crores raised by Rotary Club of Delhi Southend from their members. The project also involves the use of state of the art machinery and equipments worth Rs.1.15 crores. The annual running cost will be Rs. 50 lakhs.
The DTTE has signed a six-year MOU with Rotary Club of Delhi Southend to establish and run this center at ITI Pusa Road in Delhi. The DTTE has provided Rent free space of about 8500 square feet. All the other necessities of the training centres will be facilitated through the DTTE.
