    Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship launches a training program in collaboration with Bosch Limited

    Upholding its commitment to skilling, reskilling, and upskilling the youth, the Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC), under the aegis of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, has launched a livelihood training program in collaboration with Bosch Limited as part of their CSR initiative in Bengaluru.

    This partnership aims to provide livelihood training to 700 youth in India, focusing on 2-wheeler and 4-wheeler service technician courses. Bosch Limited will serve as the funding and knowledge partner for this initiative. A formal MoU was signed between ASDC and Bosch Limited in the presence of Suresh B R, Country Head – HR of Bosch Limited and Sakina Baker, Head – CSR, Bosch Limited and Bosch India Foundation.

    The program will focus on equipping participants with the necessary skills to service vehicles equipped with the latest BS-VI emission standards. Recognizing the challenges faced by independent auto-mechanics and garage owners who lack access to training on these new engines, the initiative includes a special program to provide these mechanics with the essential knowledge and skills to adapt to the evolving automotive landscape and remain competitive.

    Suresh BR, Country Head – HR, Bosch Limited, emphasised the need for skilling, stating, “Bosch remains committed to promoting skill development, especially for the youth from underserved communities. Through the partnership with ASDC, we hope to provide access to skill-based learning opportunities for eligible youth and create a pool of skilled resources for the automotive and allied industries.

    FR Singhvi, President, ASDC, highlighted the importance of upskilling independent mechanics, stating, “Without proper training on BS-VI engines, they risk losing their jobs in the future. This initiative addresses this threat by upgrading their skills and providing them with certificates.” He further emphasized ASDC’s commitment to expanding its reach and ensuring technicians possess the skills demanded by the industry.

    Applauding Bosch’s efforts, Mr Singhvi added, “Our youth has immense potential, and with the right opportunities, they can achieve great things. I commend Bosch for launching this upskilling program focused on BS-VI technology.”

    The partnership between ASDC and Bosch goes beyond immediate skilling. It aims to bridge the skills gap in the automotive sector and address the growing demand for qualified technicians across the country. The program will not only equip general automotive technicians with the skills to service current vehicles but also prepare them for the future of transportation with training on futuristic vehicles.

    By empowering these technicians with the necessary skills and knowledge, the program empowers them for a brighter future, aligning with the broader vision of Skill India. This collaborative effort has the potential to create a significant impact on the lives of these young individuals and the Indian automotive industry as a whole.
