MSME ministry joins with Samsung to open technical schools

New Delhi: The micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) ministry on Monday joined hands with consumer electronics major Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd to set up technical schools across the country to impart technical skills to youths. “The ministry of MSME is committed to create industry responsive manpower by giving thrust on employable skills and vocational training in partnership with industry,” MSME minister Kalraj Mishra said. “I hope that this joint initiative of MSME ministry and Samsung would be able to train 10,000 youths per year who would have the opportunity to find placement in various appliances manufacturing organizations, including Samsung,” he said. 

The MSME-Samsung technical schools will run Samsung’s advanced repair and industrial skills enhancement programme, providing students with trade-specific training on various aspects of repairing and troubleshooting consumer electronic products such as mobile phones, televisions, home theatre systems, home appliances and their related accessories. B.D. Park, president and chief executive officer (CEO), South West Asia, Samsung, said: “India is a key growth market for global consumer electronics manufacturing which lends itself to enormous employment opportunity. 

As an industry leader, Samsung is committed to work with the Indian government to tap this potential.” Amarendra Sinha, additional secretary and development commissioner of MSME, told PTI that “The fee structure is Rs.20,000 per course of three months duration. If the student cannot pay, we will arrange for a bank loan. (On completion of the course) The student is free to join Samsung or set up his own business or even join a rival company. We aim to train 10,000 students across the country annually.” The schools will be opened at MSME technology centres in 10 cities—New Delhi, Bhubaneshwar, Ludhiana, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Aurangabad, Kolkata, Varanasi, Mumbai and Chennai—this year.
