New Delhi: IndianOil’s Refineries Headquarters had undertaken a major drive last year to train youths from Delhi-NCT region in various training courses to support the national campaign of Skill India. As part of sustainable project, 394 candidates who cleared the courses successfully were provided with job placements in trades like Sewing Machine Operator, General House Keeping, Emergency Medical Technician, Vision Technician, Customer Care Executive, and General Duty Assistance. V K Shukla, Executive Director(HR), IndianOil, while addressing the first batch of successful trainees, during the convocation ceremony, exhorted them to regularly update their skills and knowledge, to stand good in any circumstance and support their families. Anita Shrivastava, GM(CC&CSR), specifically exhorted the female participants to keep high the momentum, and maintain their financial independence. Partnering with NSDC to carry out these skill training programmes, the beneficiaries were drawn mainly from Below Poverty Line families, placing a special emphasis on skilling girl students. Similar progressive skilling schemes for youth were rolled out in all 9 refineries of IndianOil located in the states of east and north east, north and west of India, benefitting about 2500 youths.
