Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan is pleased with City and Industrial Development Corporation’s (Cidco) vocational training projects, and he now plans to emulate the model in the rural areas of the state.

Cidco managing director Sanjay Bhatia and joint managing director V Radha were invited to make a presentation on this subject and take these training programmes to the inner regions of the state.

“Work on the presentations is currently underway. Details on the vocational training programmes for the rural areas are being worked upon too,” said a Cidco official, requesting anonymity.

The town planning agency, as part of its corporate social responsibility, provides vocational training to the youth from project-affected families to help them increase their chances of employment and self-employment.

Cidco has worked out a similar programme for those affected by the Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) project, wherein those in the age group of 18-35 years will be trained by them to prepare them for employment opportunities.

Cidco’s vocational training institute offers courses approved by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT), like office management, computer hardware and networking, catering, tailoring, travel and tourism, MS-CET course, WAVE course, and e-taxation.
