Ranchi: Reviewing the skill development program being run in the State, Chief Secretary Rajiv Gauba directed the departmental officers to coordinate with different departments & speed up the program.
He said that only workshop conduction will not benefit the people rather we have to work on grass root level.
He said that the enlisted institutions have to be reviewed in terms of basic infrastructure & faculties.
He directed the officers to coordinate with those departments which have not submitted the data related with developmental program & submit the report within 10 days.
He said that skill development program is important from employment generation point of view. “The Hon’ble Prime Minister & the Hon’ble Chief Minister have been monitoring it. Hence negligence on any level is intolerable”, he said.
He mentioned that the state needs to develop institutional mechanism which can trigger all types of training. Regarding skill development program run by RDD, the Chief Secretary said that the area covered under this department is wide & rural level programs should be sped up.
It should be noted that the State Govt. has signed an MOU with NSDC. Moreover, a good number of skill development institutions have been registered with the state.
Secretary, Labour, Employment & Training Department Mrs. Mridula Sinha said that the skill development program should be incorporated in the line of Uttarpradesh.
She informed that 18 departments are running skill development program in the state & data collection is hindered. She said that the concerned departments will be coordinated soon & data will be collected.
