India CSR News Network

MUMBAI: Construction industry has been one of the largest contributors to India’s GDP. Despite this, this industry faces a grave challenge of unskilled workforce. While this sector continues to grow at a rapid pace, it continues to be devoid of skilled manpower. In order to bridge this gap, CREDAI introduced its Skills Training Program for construction workers across the country in line with the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).

PMKVY is the flagship scheme for skill training of youth, implemented by the new Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship through the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). The objective of this skill certification and reward scheme is to enable and mobilize a large number of Indian youth to take up skill training and become employable and earn their livelihood. CREDAI is taking this initiative across the country through its member developers spread across 24 states and 156 city chapters.

Under this program, CREDAI will initiate pilot projects through its Training Partner- Rustomjee Academy for Global Career (RAGC) and conduct `Skill Development’ training of 180 construction workers in Mumbai & MMR at various on-going project-sites of Dosti Realty, Mantri Reality and Keystone Realtors and soon PMKVY will be taken to other developers. The state-of-the-art training program will impart ‘On-site and Classroom training’ to the construction workers that will help in developing technical skilling and safety.

The candidates who will be successfully completed and passed the training program will be certified and rewarded by the Government. Such trainings enable workers to polish their skills and help to narrow down the huge gap in demand and supply of skilled manpower in the industry. CREDAI looks forward to being the largest training Partner in the Skilling industry to undertake Skill Development trainings in the construction sector.

Jitendra Thakker, Chairman of the Committee for Skill Development at CREDAI, who is also a Board member of NSDC and a member of the Governing Body of CSDCI says, “CREDAI aims to build a foundation of skills which will automatically translate into enhanced quality of output in the construction sector. We are also looking at soft skills training that will promote better livelihoods. While both members of worker’s family partake in construction work, Rustomjee provides day-care facilities too, for their children through its CSR initiative.”

CREDAI’s skilling initiative in Pune known as KUSHAL marks the success of the foundation of its skilling programme with more than 28,000 workers trained and certified. Two of these trainees have represented India on a World Skills Competition held in New Zealand. Parusharam Naik (19 years) and Tikam Singh (21years) who won Bronze medals in the task of Brick-laying and Tiling.
