Skill development has become a vital element for growth and quality. The Government of India has been promoting the ‘Skill India’ concept so that numerous youngsters become skill ready and undertake jobs in diverse sectors.

This year, the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) launched the ‘Technology Centre Systems Programme (TCSP)’. Under this programme, the government intends to set up 15 new Technology Centres (TCs) and upgrade its existing TCs i.e. 18 (Autonomous Bodies) under the Ministry, at an estimated cost of Rs 22,000 m. The existing TCs have been providing technological support as well as skilled manpower to industries for the past few decades. Hence, the present programme is expected to enhance access to cutting edge technologies and skilled manpower by the industries, thereby making them globally competitive.

Industry contribution

This is not all! The corporate sector also understands the importance of skill development. For instance, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, India’s largest passenger vehicle maker, has recently announced that it will set up Automobile Skill Enhancement Centres (ASECs) across 15 Government run ITIs, across 11 states, in the coming months. These ASECs will be part of the company’s skill development initiative under its corporate social responsibility. The firm is expected to spend Rs 60 million for the creation of these centres and around 600 students will benefit from these ASECs, annually.
