Skill development training for employment in jute industry
The Bengal Government has announced the starting of a skill development programme for people wanting to get employed in the jute industry.
Jute is a traditional industry of Bengal. Though it has suffered for many years, with the earnest effort of the Trinamool Congress Government, things are gradually looking up.
Important features of the programme are the provision for stipends and placement opportunities in the jute industry.
The courses, to be run by the Labour Department, would run for a period of three months, of which one month would be theoretical training and two months would be practical training.
The training centres have been set up at the employment centres in Bankura, Howrah and Dum Dum. With regards to qualifications, the minimum educational qualification should be class 8 passed and the minimum age should be 18 years.
