New Delhi, Sep 4 (UNI) In a bid to generate a pool of skilled manpower for the auto industry, Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) President Ravi Kant today said the car makers will adopt 100 industrial training institutes (ITIs) across the country in the next two years.
Addressing the 48th annual convention of SIAM, Mr Kant said SIAM would contribute to the equity of the National Skills Development Corporation and support it actively.
More than 60 per cent of the additional 25 million jobs that is projected to be created as per the Automotive Mission Plan, will be the skilled category, he said.
Mr Kant, who is also the managing director of Tata Motors, said that all SIAM members would display fuel consumption information for all their cars and two wheelers at the points of sale ''Starting January 2009, all automobile makers will begin the process of displaying the fuel consumption information at the point of sale of passenger cars and two-wheelers, along with the documentation of the vehicle,'' he said.
This process will be completed by April 1, 2009.
To cut down carbon-di-oxide emission, he said this could be implemented by adopting an integrated and a partnership approach.
Some of the initiatives that would reduce carbon-di-oxide emission include introduction of more fuel efficient vehicle, use of alternative fuels and introduction of electric and hybrid vehicles.
