Architects,Builders,Interior Designers and Dealers (ABID) with the help of several national agencies has provided training to around 800 unskilled carpenters, finishers and site supervisors to support Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Skill India” mission.
ABID with the help of the National Skill Development Corporation, Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts and Furniture Fitting Skill Council and India Wood organized a two-days workshop from 3 August at Milan Mela to provide training to carpenters, finishers and site supervisors.
ABID is an umbrella organization of architects, builders, interior designers and dealers. The organization has been working for the last 25 years to promote and develop the home and interior design industry in the region.
“This is the first of many such initiatives planned by ABID, starting with training of existing carpenters, polishers, painters, finishers and supervisors in the interior construction field.
Further,ABID intends to conduct many endeavours to ensure India has a skilled workforce and we look forward to many more such successful programmes,” said Anand Gupta, secretary of ABID.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier said, “Skill India mission is not merely to fill the pockets but to bring a sense of self-confidence among the poor. Skill development needs to focus on value addition.”
ABID has organized this programme to provide training to carpenters so they can get an understanding of market demand, said an official of the organization.
