PSUs should increase participation in Apprenticeship program: MSME Min

New Delhi, Dec 5 (UNI) Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Mahendra Nath Pandey on Thursday urged Central Public Sector companies to significantly increase their participation in the government’s apprenticeship program at a National Seminar held to spread awareness and participation in Apprenticeship Programme, here.
The seminar was organised by MSDE in collaboration with the Standing Conference of Public Enterprises and Department of Public Enterprises, with an aim of increasing participation in the government’s apprenticeship scheme in the service sector by government-run companies.
The ministry has taken several efforts to increase the number of apprentices hired by enterprises in the country. The aim is to fill the gap in supply and demand for skilled workforce and meet the aspirations of the Indian youth through gaining on-the-job training and securing better opportunities for employment. Most PSUs are hiring apprentices for technical and manufacturing job roles.
However, the number of apprentices in the service sector is lagging behind. Senior executives of major PSUs, attending the event, were also urged to hire students who have cleared skill programmes under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana, a flagship scheme of MSDE implemented by National Skill Development Corporation.
Detailing the benefits of the apprenticeship scheme, Dr Pandey said, ''Central Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) are instrumental in sustaining self-reliant economic growth and play a vital role in generating employment opportunities for skilled professionals.
He strongly urged them to come forward, increase their engagement with apprentices and build their potential to be industry ready.
Dr Pandey further stated this will lead to the success of the enterprises, apprentices and will lead to fulfilling the aspirations of New India. He appealed to all the enterprises to give due respect to the young apprentices, treat them at par with their employees and recognise them as the torchbearers of the overall growth and progress.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister of State for MSME R K Singh said, ''We have a substantial proof of the positive impact apprentices create in the manufacturing and service industry. Countries like Germany and Japan have proven apprenticeship as an effective model improving links between industry and training institutions.
''Through such examples and by urging CPSUs, pathways can be created for industrial development and which can contribute to India’s economic growth, he said, adding that ''We want to strengthen the Indian apprenticeship system to impart formal training across sectors in order to rightly skill the youth and provide them opportunities for livelihood.''
