NSDC places second batch of skilled women from ‘Bru Tribe’

New Delhi, Nov 4 (UNI) The National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has yet again successfully provided placements to the second batch of skilled women from the Bru Tribe.
Designed specifically for the Bru Tribe in Tripura, the skill development programme is under the pilot phase of ‘Special Projects’ component of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), an official statement said.

NSDC along with its training partner, ValeurFabtex Pvt Ltd has undertaken skill training in various job roles and in its second placement drive, has ensured placements to 87 women in a leading knitted-garment manufacturing company - Quantum Knits, a unit of KPR Mills Ltd, Coimbatore.
Previously, during the first placement drive, 120 skilled women candidates from the tribe were provided employment by the same organisation.

ValeurFabtex Pvt Ltd and Tripura Welfare Research Society, with assistance from NSDC, organised second placement ceremony in Tripura recently to handover offer letters to the 87 candidates. The letters were distributed by Mr SK Panda, IAS, Chairman, Executive Committee, Tripura Skill Development Mission, Government of Tripura.

The trainees who could not avail the placement opportunity during the two placement drives will be aided at self-employment through market linkages, provided through work orders from BSF, CRPF and capacity building from ONGC, DONER Ministry among others. The next step of the pilot phase will focus on new job roles like beauty therapist, carpentry, bamboo growing and handicrafts.

During the seven-month programme that began in March and ended in September, more than 300 women have been trained in different job roles such as two-shaft handloom operator, hand embroiderer and self-employed tailor in the Textile and Apparel sectors.
Bru Tribe is one of the ethnic groups of India. Natives of Mizoram, they were forced to leave their homes because of ethnic violence in 1997. Ever since, their lives have been confined to the refugee camps in Tripura.
