Taking forward its initiative to support the cause of primary and secondary school education in Singur, Tata Motors today helped a primary school in Joymollah upgrade its infrastructure. The company provided desks, benches, chairs, tables, cupboards and electrical fittings in addition to educational and sports material to the school, in the presence of school authorities, officials from the panchayat and local administration, Tata Motors’ officials, school students and residents. Tata Motors had flagged off its education initiative with a similar activity in a primary school in Ruidaspara, Beraberi recently.

As part of its initiative, Tata Motors recently set up a computer laboratory in a high school in Beraberi, and has provided 5 computers, 5 CVTs (stabilisers) and 5 computer tables and chairs to the school. The computer laboratory was inaugurated by Mr Prosenjit Chakraborty, Block Development Officer. The company has planned similar programmes to upgrade school infrastructure in the project area. 

This initiative is part of Tata Motors’ comprehensive community development programme for Singur, in line with the company’s practices in other locations. The three focus areas in Singur are – Health, Education and Livelihood. The programme includes: a) training, according to an individual’s educational qualifications and skill, to improve their employability; 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, provision for drinking water, primary/secondary education and adult education. 

As part of its health initiative, Tata Motors has been regularly conducting health camps in Beraberi and Joymolla, where patients receive treatment and medicines. Till date, over 54 health camps have been conducted, where over 10,170 villagers were treated.

Tata Motors recently inducted a batch of around 100 youth as apprentices at the Singur plant. This batch comprises youth from Singur villages and from various ITIs of West Bengal. 16 local youth, educated in state-run Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) have been appointed as employees at the Singur plant from October 2007. 300 others are undergoing training. On successful completion of the training programme, the trainees will take the trade tests to qualify for trade certificates issued by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) and will become eligible for apprenticeship training at the Singur plant and vendor facilities.
