New Delhi: The Department of Heavy Industry (DHI) under the Ministry of Heavy Industry and Public Enterprises proposes to formulate a comprehensive plan for skill development in specific sectors such as automobile, heavy electrical engineering and machines tools. This initiative by the Department of Heavy Industry is expected to provide the necessary fillip to help these sectors emerge as globally competitive hubs.

Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh, Union Minister for Heavy Industry and Public Enterprises made the announcement recently, as part of the 100 day agenda of the Ministry.

In order to facilitate proper, streamlined and high growth rate during the current fiscal and in the future, the availability of adequately trained manpower for these sectors (automobile, heavy electrical engineering and machines tools) would be an absolute necessity.

Ensuring the availability of skilled and trained manpower will help in the creation of a reservoir of human talent to work in capital and labour intensive sectors and capital goods sector which are prime movers of the economy.

This is the reason for the Department of Heavy Industry proposal to draw up a comprehensive skill development plan for these sectors.

The Department of Heavy Industry is concerned with the development of the engineering industry (machine tools, heavy electrical, industrial machinery and auto industry) and administers 32 operating Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs). The CPSEs under the Department are engaged in manufacture of engineering/capital goods, consultancy and contracting services. Apart from these, there are small, medium and large enterprises also operating in the private sector and various industry associations which are taking care of these enterprises operating in the private sector.
