Tata Motors today announced selection of a group of 11 trainees from among residents of Singur villages, for an extensive 6-month training to be provided by the company.

The 11 trainees, all of whom have in the past attended government-run Industrial Training Institute (ITI) courses, have been selected out of the 21 such candidates who responded to Tata Motors’ initiative and appeared for a written test and interview held on December 25, 2006, in Singur. The candidates had earlier registered with the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC) camp office in Singur.

Tata Motors plans to hold another round of such tests for fresh registration of ITI trained local candidates. Interested eligible candidates from the Singur Project area can register their names with the WBIDC camp office in Singur.

During the 6-month intensive training provided by the company, the 11 trainees will cover various disciplines related to their trades. Tata Motors will provide them with hostel facilities and also pay a monthly stipend during the 6-month period. On successful completion of the training programme, they will be eligible for employment in the Small Car project in Singur.

The 10 candidates, who did not qualify in the December 25 examination, will be given training in appropriate skills to enhance their employability.

This initiative is the beginning of Tata Motors’ comprehensive community development programme for Singur, in line with the company’s practices in other locations. The programme includes: a) training, according to an individual’s educational qualifications and skill, to improve their employability and also create opportunities for self employment; b) training women for employability – through facilitation of cooperative societies – to produce a diverse range of items, which could be used in the Tata Motors plant or the vendor plants; and c) social development in the Singur area, through community centres, and support for primary health, primary/secondary education and adult education.
