With an aim to uplift the economic conditions of the people living around its manufacturing unit, Power major Tata Power Wednesday said it has now set up four Tata Power Skill Development Institutes (TPSDIs) for training purposes in India. TPSDI has employed its approach for the development of workers in power-skills and encourage them to reach their full potential.
Anil Sardana, CEO and Managing Director, Tata Power said, “Skill development is an essential ingredient for India’s future economic growth as the country transforms itself into an internationally competitive economy. Creating new jobs is only a part of the equation for employment in today’s developing India as over 12 million youth are joining the workforce each year.’’
The training would consist of both knowledge and hands-on skills.
The Institute will work towards providing greater access to its courses to the members of disadvantaged sections of the society as part of its Affirmative Action Policy and also reach out to those in the below-poverty-line (BPL) category.
