BCIC welcomes proposal of New Skill Ministry

Bangalore : Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BCIC) welcomed the proposal given by the Karnataka Government to establish a new Skill Ministry which aims to produce quality skilling to the passing out graduates in the State.

Welcoming the proposal, Thyagu Valliappa, president, BCIC, said: “This has been a long standing demand of Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce to set up a separate Skill Ministry wherein the youth coming out of educational institutions are adequately equipped to seamlessly enter the job market”.

He said the BCIC was the only regional Chamber in the country to have recognized by the National Skills Development Corporation (NSDC) to promote skilling in the aviation and aerospace space through its Sector Skills Council which is the only one of its kind in the country. K Kishore Alva, Vice President, BCIC Said: “It has been a collective criticism among top industry captains that there is a severe mismatch between the curriculum that is taught at the colleges and the actual need of the industry which has a cycle of just two years.”

BCIC while commending the government’s proposal to set up a Skill Ministry said that it should be concretized within a set time frame as quality human resource directly contributes to the economic development and prosperity of any State.
