Mumbai, July 25 (UNI) Mahindra &Mahindra Limited (M&M), the leader in the Utility Vehicle segment in India, today announced that it will upgrade two Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) at Ghodegaon and Manikdoh in Maharashtra, under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme approved by the Union Government.
An MoU to this effect was signed by Mr Bhutange, Director Vocational Education &Training, Maharashtra State and Mr Prince Augustin, Senior Vice President, Human Capital, Mahindra &Mahindra Limited at Mantralaya today.
The PPP scheme or Public Private Partnership Scheme has been approved by the Union Government and aims to upgrade 1,396 ITIs and transform them into Centres of Excellence. As part of the MoU, an Institute Development Plan (IDP) will be jointly prepared by the Institute Management Committee (IMC) and Mahindra to ensure upgradation of the institute and required trades in terms of both numbers and quality.
As a result of this, both student intake capacity and number of faculty members will increase. Students from these two institutes will also get an opportunity to work with Mahindra after graduation.
''The PPP scheme was initiated to help bridge the gap between demand and supply of trained resources for the auto industry, which is especially prevalent in the Pune region. By providing relevant training to both students and faculty of the ITIs at Ghodegaon and Manikdoh, Mahindra will play a major role in creating required skill sets,'' Maharashtra Energy Minister Dilip Walse Patil said, while speaking on the occasion.
