Skill Development: Training to Youth (Indicative Image)
The central government runs various schemes for the skill development of the youth. If the skill development of youth is not done along with traditional education, then problems arise in job or employment. Through skill development, it is also easier for the youth to get jobs and they become capable of doing their own employment.
However, the latest good news is that a skill development project worth Rs 3.5 crore is being started by the Ministry of Coal. Under this project 500 youth will be given training in plastic engineering. Let us tell you that in recent years plastic engineering is an employable field full of possibilities. There is a large industrial sector of plastic products. At the same time, the way Prime Minister Narendra Modi has talked about making the country self-reliant with toys, there is a lot of scope in this field too.
What is the project of Ministry of Coal?
Northern Coalfields Limited (NCL), a Miniratna company under the Ministry of Coal, will provide training to 500 youths residing in and around NCL’s operational areas in the plastic engineering business. Along with this, it will ensure the preparation of employment for these youth in the competitive market. The training will be conducted with the help of Central Institute of Petrochemicals Engineering and Technology (CIPET), Chennai.
This training program is designed as per the norms laid down by the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) and approved by the National Skill Qualification Committee (NSQC). An MoU has been signed in this regard between NCL, the holding company of Coal India Limited and CIPET, Chennai.
Rs 70,000 spent on a youth
This training program will be residential. For this residential training program NCL company will spend Rs.70,000 per trainee under its CSR i.e. Corporate Social Responsibility which includes course fee, course material, uniform, training kit, accommodation and other charges. The selected candidates will be given training in plastic processing, injection moulding, blow moulding, plastic recycling etc. by CIPET at its centers located at Bhopal, Gwalior and Lucknow.
Target to spend Rs 132.75 crore under CSR
For the selection of candidates, NCL in association with CIPET organized a two day screening session at Nigahi and Khadia projects and subsequently 345 eligible candidates were selected for skill development programme. Remaining candidates will be selected in the upcoming screening round.
Notably, NCL has spent around Rs 130 crore during the financial year 2020-21 and a target of spending Rs 132.75 crore on CSR activities in the year 2021-22.
The Government of India’s NCL, Singrauli based Miniratna Company works with 10 highly mechanized opencast coal mines and it represents 15 per cent of the national coal production. The company produced more than 115 million tonnes of coal in the last financial year.
