Skilling Bengal youngsters

Rotary Club of Chandan Nagar, RID 3291, has entered into a partnership with L&T Construction Skills Training Institute (CSTI), Serampore, Hooghly district, West Bengal, to provide skill development ­training to less privileged youngsters under 30 and school dropouts. Courses include construction-related topics such as bar bending, carpentry, scaffolding and masonry in work-site simulated premises. The classes will be conducted in the CSTI  campus for 45 days, after which the institute will induct the students as apprentices for nine months at L&T construction sites across India, providing them accommodation and a monthly stipend of ₹13,146. On successful completion of the apprenticeship, the candidates will be employed in the corporate’s sites as regular employees.

The first batch of seven trainees with members of RC Chandan Nagar.

Seven youngsters from rural areas such as Namkhana and the Sunderbans of the South 24 Paraganas district were shortlisted in August by the club to undergo the course. “They all are now undergoing apprenticeship,” said Tapas Kumar Saha, the district’s vocational co-chair.
