Patna: Delhi-based Marg ERP Ltd has signed a memorandum of understanding (Mou) with the Bihar government to open a chain of centres at Gaya and Buxar to provide skill training and employment to rural youths.
The company will provide training in retail, accounting and IT sector. The company had earlier joined hands with the Union ministry of rural development for its National Rural Livelihood Mission. The inventory software will be set up at the residential centres which has capacity to train hundreds of students.
The NRLM had rolled out the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana in 2014 and Roshni, a project for tribal areas in 2015, to transform rural youths into an economically-independent and a globally-relevant workforce.
The managing director of the company, Sushir Singh, said they shared the vision of providing training to youths in the hinterland. He said: “Since we share the same vision, we joined the government to have a number of centres where these youths will be trained and provided placement assistance.”
Placement assistance will be provided to students when they complete the course and the centre will deploy well-qualified trainers and staff to provide the best training to students, he said, adding that there will be separate boarding facilities for boys and girls.
