NBCC (India) Ltd has signed an MoU with the Skill Development Institute (SDI) Bhubaneswar for the construction of the institute which will facilitate empowering of youth in Odisha with relevant skill sets and train them in various disciplines. The SDI Bhubaneswar is a training setup being promoted by eight PSUs in the Oil and Gas sector under joint CSR schemes.

“NBCC wants to have skilled and future-ready workforce to be a part of our highly-efficient team,” said Dr Anoop Kumar Mittal hailing this as another step in the fulfilment of ‘Skill India’ mission. “We are working towards creating a well-defined system of identifying and training the workforce in the construction sector, which comprises a port, irrigation, roads, infrastructures and buildings,” he added.

Under training programmes, being conducted under Skill India Mission, the youth/workers/ apprentices are getting trained at our locations free of cost for various trades under construction industry. The initiative is targeted at providing adequate skill training/upskilling training to the youthful manpower in next 7 years so as to eradicate the problem of poverty and skill deficiency in India.

Existing workers will also be exposed to advanced technology in construction and their skill gap will be further supplemented by well- structured training. The organization has identified a number of people to be trained for upskilling for the period of next 5 years which is tentatively 8,000 per year. NBCC in the last five years has trained a significant number of people for upskilling their skill sets.
