RSDC Completes Tyre Fitters Training Programme


In yet another project aimed at equipping youth from backward regions with employable skills, Rubber Skill Development Council (RSDC) has just completed a major tyre fitters skill training programme at Nuh (Haryana). The training drive was carried out as a CSR project of Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC) and as an initiative of National Backward Classes Finance & Development Corporation (NBCFDC), a Govt of India Undertaking.

A major part of last year was affected by COVID pandemic which led to disruptions. However the project was completed in the right earnest following guidelines and without compromising on the training aspects.

“Skill training project under CSR initiative of CWC is yet another testimony to RSDC’s capabilities for successful investment of CSR funds in nation’s development through professional skilling of youth in the country. We are privileged to have collaborated with CWC and NBCFDC for taking this project to successful fruition. The exercise will help bridge the skill gap in tyre fitters, a majority of whom have been deprived of any formal training,” said Shewani Nagpal, COO, RSDC.

As many as 180 students underwent skills training for tyre fitters job role at fully equipped centres under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) scheme of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY). Out of these,165 completed the training successfully and a significant majority of 137 also received the placement.

The RPL training has not only led to placement for a large number of trainees but has also spawned a number of entrepreneurs as self-employed tyre mechanics. Formally trained tyre fitters will also help make road transport safer as tyre fitters play a vital role in advising vehicle owners in tyre upkeep.
