In a first-of-its-kind unique initiative, companies which include Indian textile major – Raymond and the biggest Indian online retailer – Flipkart have been given the flexibility to design training programmes at Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) in a manner that the youth are skilled according to the specific needs of the industry.

At a National Consultation, ‘Demand-Responsive Vocational Training’, hosted in New Delhi, CII in partnership with the Ministry of Labour & Employment has facilitated the signing of four flexi-MoUs with Tata Sons, Flipkart, Raymonds and the Gujarat Industrial Power Company Ltd (GIPCL).

The MoU with Raymond was signed between Mr RL Singh DDG (Training), DGE&T and Mr Krish Dutta, General Manager, Raymond Ltd. Under the MoU, the company will conduct training programmes on customized garment manufacturing in trouser-making, jacket-making and formal men’s wear like shirt-making, etc.

The MoU with Flipkart was signed between Mr RL Singh and Mr Joy Bandekar, President, Flipkart. As part of the MoU, the company, which is working on a mission ‘Flipkart Karigaar Ke Dwaar’, will benefit MSMEs and artisans in building their capabilities and improving their competitiveness.

CII facilitated the collaboration with the government to ensure that India contributes in a meaningful way to the global workforce by providing its young job-seeking population with relevant and industry-specific skills.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms Gauri Kumar, Secretary (L&E), Govt of India said, “The country has busted a number of paradigms. The challenge before India is how to forge a winning partnership and to come together for mutual benefits”.

She added that the country has limited infrastructure therefore the government is looking at partnerships wherein companies can help develop a last-mile employability module.

She stressed on the need for collaboration between industry clusters, the ITIs, state governments and career centres to provide training to youth in line with industry needs and urged the industry to improve its productivity as that would lead to better wages as well.

Mr Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, CII, highlighting the partnership with the government as exemplary, said the MoUs will pave a new way of thinking.

He said, “CII understands that human capital is the force behind economic growth and will play an important role in the growth prospects of India and in the process make India the talent capital of the world.”

Banerjee added that working with the government under a PPP mode; CII members have adopted 398 ITIs across the country to make them industry-friendly.

CII has committed to working with the government in making possible the last-mile employability, sectoral gap training and identifying champions from the industry who can help build modern-day human capital.
