- Training centre at Jharia Vihar Colony

For the 1,000-plus families who have been shifted to Belgarhia under the first phase of Jharia rehabilitation project, here’s a chance to befriend the computer and in the process, become self-employed.

BCCL is readying a computer training centre at a cost of Rs 6.6 lakh at Jharia Vihar Colony for imparting tech tips to the displaced with an aim to make them employable. Nari Shakti Samiti, an association of BCCL officers’ wives, will run the centre, which has been under construction since this September and is on the verge of completion.

“A central hall makes up the 40X25feet centre, which is divided into two enclosures. The facility will also house the stitching and tailoring training centre that currently runs from the community hall,” said senior public relations officer of BCCL R.R. Prasad.

He added that female members of rehabilitated families, who have come from Bokapahari, Ghanudih, North Tisra, South Tisra, Lodna, Luj Pit and other underground fire and subsidence-affected areas of Jharia, would be enrolled for a six-month course. They will be picked up by a selection committee of Nari Shakti Samiti.

Poonam Mishra, secretary of the Samiti, added that training would start most probably from December. The minimum eligibility criterion is matriculation. “Although we train intermediate pass-outs at our other computer centres, we decided to keep a lower eligibility criterion for the displaced at Belgarhia. The minimum age is 16 years,” said Mishra, wife of general manager of BCCL’s Barora area P.S. Mishra.

Classes will be held six days a week from Monday to Saturday from noon to 3pm or any other time at the convenience of the beneficiaries. Besides basics like MS Office, PowerPoint, Excel et al, the trainees will also pick up working knowledge of Tally.

“We are planning to form a big batch of around 50,” Mishra said.
