Project Description

Centre for Research and Industrial Staff Performance (CRISP) has conducted a unique skill training under CSR, sponsored by Khadi & Village Industries Board, Government of Madhya Pradesh. Under this initiative probably first time in the country girls are skilled to become “Two Wheeler Auto Technician” i.e. training in repair & maintenance of two-wheeler were imported to 60 girls. The training was residential of 3 months duration, targeted for weaker section of Society (tribal, SC,OBC, Minority etc.). These girls belongs to rural pockets of the State & were from Rajgarh, Dhar, Khargone, Mandla, Umaria, Chhatarpur, Betul, Satna, Jabalpur, Jhabua, Seoni, Chhindwara, Balaghat etc. the so called tribal belt.

This unique initiative was purposely planned as society saw tremendous interest of girls during their promotional campaign in Dhar district. Fortunately socirety had recently established Two Wheeler Repair & Maintenance Training Centre in June, 2016 only with TVS Motor Company and Khadi & Village Board, Govt. of M.P. willingly agreed to support this initiative.

CRISP had few concerns before taking up this Project whether girls will opt career in technical trade i.e. mechanical work, will work in male dominated workplace, will parents allow them to choose as career, will girls go to Bhopal for 3 months (Majority of the girls had never travelled previously to such big town) and more. However all stakeholders agreed to let’s make a beginning & plan the initiative.

Systematic planning was done to execute the training. KVIB field level officers were deputed to create awareness, sensitize the society and mobilize and select potential candidates. CRISP planned training module simpler, appointed two trainers who can explain in their language with patience.

The training was full of practical on all TVS make two wheeler (scooterette, scooter and motor cycle). TVS trainers were also trained them. OJT at TVS dealers in Bhopal were given. More than 100 vehicles from CRISP Staff & outsiders were repaired by them to gain confidence. Tool kit was also given to them. The Chief Minister of M.P. Shri Shivraj Singh Chauhan invited girls at this residence and talked and inspired all candidates.

During the training, they were also given inputs on soft skill (Behavioural), computer literacy, English and English communication, corporate culture and values. Appreciations from dealer were also received about the quality of training and attitude of all females.

As an outcome of society’s efforts almost 40 girls got placement in TVS dealers in Bhopal, Indore, Jabalpur and other districts.
