GM India inks pact with Gujarat to train ITI studentsJuly 14th, 2008 - 11:35 pm ICT by IANS
Ahmedabad, July 14 (IANS) The Gujarat government Monday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with General Motors India to train students of the Tarsali Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Vadodara. The agreement was signed by Industry Commissioner Sujith Gulati, Employment and Training Director C.V. Som and GM president and managing director Karl Slym in the presence of Minister of State for Industries Saurabh Patel.
According to the MoU, GM India would develop and provide technical courses on automotive technology for Tarsali ITI students. The courses would leverage GM’s global resources and take advantage of expertise at GM’s manufacturing facility in Halol, Gujarat, and the GM Technical Centre in Bangalore.
GM India would also upgrade the existing infrastructure at the institute and assist in providing other course-related facilities.
“The programme we are announcing today would help provide skills required to ensure that Gujarat remains a favourable destination for domestic and foreign investors,” said Patel.
“Our public-private partnership would enable us to share the cost required for upgrading facilities for introducing new courses, providing training to students, and assisting in designing the course content and securing external faculty. We would also sponsor trainees as apprentices in our organisation,” said Slym.
GM India had earlier associated with Gujarat’s Commercial Tax Department to build awareness for value-added tax (VAT) system and offered GM vehicles as the prize for the winners of the schemes launched by the department.
GM India is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors Corp. It manufactures Chevrolet Tavera, Chevrolet Optra, Chevrolet Aveo and Aveo U-VA, Chevrolet SRV and Chevrolet Spark at its facility in Halol.
