State cradle to train Jindal workers
- JSPL signs MoU with tool room on skill programme for youths

Ranchi, Nov. 11: Jindal Steel & Power Limited (JSPL) today inked an MoU with Jharkhand Government Tool Room & Training Centre, Ranchi, on a special training programme for employees of the private sector major.

To start with, 48 employees of JSPL will be trained as fitters and electricians at the state-run training centre at Tatisilway industrial Area on the capital’s outskirts of the city.

“We signed an MoU with JSPL, one of the big players in the corporate sector that’s doing well in Jharkhand, to provide training services. This is just a start. Let’s hope we provide customised training for the company’s employees in future too,” the centre’s principal Mahesh Gupta told The Telegraph.

Jindal’s 48 employees will be enrolled for a six-month course, fully paid for by the JSPL.

“It’s a milestone for the local youths,” said state industry secretary A.P. Singh in his address at the formal ceremony where among those present included JSPL executive vice-president cum plant head (Patratu) Sanjay Sharma and his senior colleagues.

“It’s a part of skills enhancement training for JSPL employees. The company aims to train over a thousand students in next three years,” said Sharma.

The state government has two training centres, one at Tatisilway and the other at Dumka, offering four-year diplomas in tool and die making, a two-year advance machinist course and short term courses of various tenures.

Both institutes were set up under a joint initiative of the state and Centre in 2007. At present, the state industry department governs both, but they don’t get any state grant for day-to-day operations.

The Tatisilway centre’s principal, however, said he was happy that all students of the four-year tool and die making courses got placed in reputable companies like TRF and Tata Motors in Jamshedpur and JSPL in Patratu, among others.

“There have been placements outside Jharkhand too. In future, a batch of students from JSPL will also be trained as plumbers. We design training modules according to industry needs,” said Gupta.
