New Delhi [India], December 21(ANI/NewsVoir): Rubber Skill Development Council (RSDC), the sector skill council for Rubber in the country, celebrated its annual awards ceremony, 5th in the series, in a virtual mode. The RSDC awards ceremony which has come to attain a special place on the calendar of Rubber & Tyre Industry in India gave the feel of a live show as all the elements of the awards ceremony were string together with high technical precision. The event witnessed large participation from Rubber & Tyre Industry captains, officials from Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE), National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), trainers, assessors, academia and other stakeholders.

Anshuman Singhania, Vice Chairman, Automotive Tyre Manufacturers Association (ATMA) and V T Chandhrasekharan, President, All India Rubber Industries Association (AIRIA) graced the occasion as Guests of Honour.

Recounting the achievements of RSDC in its 8-year journey, Chairman of RSDC Vinod Simon in his welcome note stated, "RSDC has trained over 2.5 lakh trainees across Rubber plantations, Rubber manufacturing and Tyre repair & services verticals apart from creating qualification packs (QPs) and National Occupation Standards (NOS) for different job roles in the Rubber sector. Skill gap analysis has been undertaken by RSDC across all major states in the country. RSDC is currently engaged in creating e-learning simulated content and different models of training. The Saamarth project of RSDC being run under the mentorship of MSDE has been a trailblazer of sorts."

"Besides training in plantations and manufacturing, a fleet of 40 well-equipped mobile skill vans, the first of-its-kind in India, are running the length & breadth of the country training tyre fitters and converting many of them into entrepreneurs," added Mr. Simon.

"During the pandemic, a large number of people have been equipped with skills which will be in good demand as the economy is gradually but certainly opening up. Additionally renewed efforts have been made for training in plantations in the Northeast. The Northeast of the country holds a lot of potential for increasing output of Natural Rubber through skill development and skill training in rubber tapping and processing. Tyre industry is all for NR plantations in the country and will support every move that makes domestic NR competitive," said Anshuman Singhania, Vice Chairman ATMA.

V T Chandhrasekharan, President AIRIA said, "The disruption due to COVID pandemic has caused wide-spread chaos. However during our several interactions with the Government officials in recent months, it was evident that the Rubber industry has a large potential to grow. Internationally, manufacturers have started looking for alternative manufacturing bases. India fits the bill well. There is a large opportunity for Indian rubber industry to grow. We need to invest in R & D, improve manufacturing capacities by using low cost automation and artificial intelligence (AI) and improve efficiencies of the work force. RSDC is doing a meaningful job along with the partners in skilling up the sector. Rubber Industry needs the support from all the stakeholders in making the industry competitive."

Two veterans of industry, Vijay Pahwa, NSDC's nominee director at RSDC and Rajiv Budhraja, Director General, ATMA announced the awards in their capacity as jury members.
