Labour ministry joins hands with Tata Sons, Flipkart

As part of the collaboration, Tata Sons has been appointed as knowledge partner by the ministry to enhance employability and entrepreneurship

New Delhi: The labour ministry on Friday joined hands with four companies—Tata Sons Ltd, Raymonds Ltd, Flipkart and Gujarat Industrial Power Company Ltd (GIPCL)—to improve “demand responsive vocational training" and enhance the “brand equity" of Industrial Training Institutions (ITIs).

“The challenge before India is how to forge a winning partnership. How do we come together for mutual benefits," said labour secretary Gauri Kumar at a function organized by industry lobby Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) in New Delhi.

The government is looking at partnerships where companies can volunteer to help develop a last-mile employability module, CII and the ministry said in a statement.

As part of the collaboration, Tata Sons has been appointed as knowledge partner by the ministry to enhance employability and entrepreneurship, said Alok Kumar, director general at the directorate general of employment and training (DGET), a part of the labour ministry.

While Raymond will facilitate conducting training programmes on customized garment manufacturing, GIPCL has adopted two ITIs in tribal-dominated areas of Gujarat where it will provide two specific courses—Instrument Mechanic (Power Plant) and Electrician (Power Plant).

The Flipkart agreement signed between deputy director general DGET RL Singh and Joy Bandekar, president of the e-retailer, will benefit artisans by building their capabilities.
