CGSC endorses skill development efforts by Jindal Stainless
Stainless Academy by Jindal Stainless gets recognition for its practical and high quality training
India’s largest stainless steel manufacturer, Jindal Stainless, has received endorsement from Capital Goods Skill Council (CGSC), a Government of India initiative for creating a vibrant eco-system for quality training and skill development. CGSC has recognised efforts made by Jindal Stainless in advancing stainless steel fabrication training programmes, conducted across the country, to train grass-root level fabricators and welders in stainless steel handling. Bridging the market-skill gap and building capacity through delivery of training programs under the banner ‘Stainless Academy’, Jindal Stainless has been successful in training over 10,000 fabricators till date.
Acknowledging this endorsement by CGSC, managing director of Jindal Stainless, Abhyuday Jindal said, “Promotion and recognition of Stainless Academy by the government will help minimise the skill-opportunity gap in India. Jindal Stainless is committed to scaling up efforts towards training a large number of fabricators and improving overall quality of fabrication. Our aim is to help develop a sustainable and self-sufficient ecosystem for manufacturing and adoption of stainless steel in the country. Considering the Government’s Atmanirbhar vision, fabricators will play a crucial role in infrastructure and building projects. Over and above imparting practical training through our unique vans, we have stepped up efforts to reach out to students in their classrooms by introducing academic courses in IITs to educate and better equip future engineers and architects.”
Commenting on the endorsement, chief operating officer of CGSC, Shalini Singh said, "CGSC consistently endeavours to develop a robust and vibrant eco-system for quality training and skill development in the country. This novel initiative by Jindal Stainless is a promising step that will boost the skill set of grassroot level fabricators across the country, and also help augment their livelihood incomes. We are ready to extend all our support to Jindal Stainless in developing this skill inventory.”
Jindal Stainless has developed four flagship stainless steel showcase vans that travel across the country, spreading awareness among households and industries. With a dedicated set of highly trained staff, these vans are used for live demos and to train fabricators. The vans have also been recognised and supported by government bodies like the Ministry of Steel under ‘Ispati Irada’ and ‘Skill India’ by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), a Government of India body.
