NSDC releases revised RFP for Sending Organizations for TITP program, invites applications


To amplify the impetus on making India the skill capital of the world, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), the Government of India, signed the Memorandum of Cooperation on the Technical Intern Training Program (TITP) with the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan (hereafter referred to as “The Government of Japan’).

The MoC was signed on October 17, 2017 and aims to transform India’s skill ecosystem by sending and accepting technical interns from India to Japan, thereby enabling Indian industries to imbibe the best practices of Japanese industries. Under TITP, the empaneled Sending Organizations (hereafter referred to as ‘SOs’) aggregate technical intern demand in Japan, identify suitable candidates in India, train them in Japanese Language, Japanese lifestyle, culture, etiquettes, and relevant domain training before getting placed in Japan. After completion of TITP program, the candidates may return to India and utilize the skills acquired by them in Japan. In January 2018, the MSDE appointed NSDC to monitor TITP.

As of the release of this RFP, there are 34 empaneled SOs and NSDC is desirous of empaneling more suitable entities as SOs under TITP. Given this, NSDC invites Proposals through this RFP for the empanelment of SOs in India for TITP.

Roles and Responsibilities

It will be mandatory for the SOs to comply with the terms and conditions of the Contract and the TITP Guidelines, which NSDC may amend from time to time. At any given point in time, the TITP Guidelines shall supersede the terms of RFP, Contract and /or all other policies, guidelines, and communication related to TITP.
