This is the second group of ITI educated trainees selected by the company. In all, the company has so far selected 17 trainees.
Earlier on January 4, Tata Motors had selected 11 trainees out of the 21 such candidates who responded to the companyâ€™s initiative and appeared for a written test and interview held on December 25, 2006. All the candidates had earlier registered with the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC).
The 17 trainees will be placed at the company’s Jamshedpur facility soon for their training. During the 6-month period, they 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 candidates, who have not qualified in the December 25 and February 10 examinations, will be given training in appropriate skills to enhance their employability.
