Puducherry: The Confederation of Indian Industry will train 100 volunteers belonging to Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes on toruism releated projects, the puducherry unit of the CII said on 15 June.
The CII, in a press release, said that the CII Director General Lt General (retired) S S Mehta and the chairman of the Puducherry chapter C Chinnaswamy held talks with Lt Governor Mukut Mithi and Chief Minister N Rangasamy recently and expressed CII’s readiness to train the youths in such projects.
The CII would also work jointly with the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) here to upgrade ITIs in India, as visualised by the Centre. Faculty from industries would be sponsored to upgrade ITI students’ skills here and also to prepare the curriculum, wherever necessary, the release said.
An Emergency Management system would be put in place in the Southern region with necessary facilities. The CII urged the Puducherry administration to go in for a partnership to carry out these programmes.
