Tata Motors flags off initiative to support primary and secondary education in Singur

KOLKATA, October 18, 2007: Tata Motors today flagged off its initiative to support the cause of primary and secondary school education in Singur.

The company provided desks, benches, chairs, tables, cupboards and electrical fittings in addition to educational and sports material to a primary school in Ruidaspara, Beraberi, in the presence of school authorities, panchayat officials, Tata Motors' officials and residents. The company has planned similar programmes to upgrade school infrastructure in the project area. It is also planning to set up a computer laboratory in one of the high schools.  

This initiative is part of Tata Motors' comprehensive community development programme for Singur, in line with the company's practices in other locations. The three focus areas in Singur are - Health, Education and Livelihood. The programme includes: a) training, according to an individual's educational qualifications and skill, to improve their employability; b) training women for employability - through facilitation of cooperative societies - to produce a diverse range of items, which could be used in the Tata Motors plant or the vendor plants; and c) social development in the Singur area, through community centres, and support for primary health, provision for drinking water, primary/secondary education and adult education.

As part of its health initiative, Tata Motors has been regularly conducting health camps in Beraberi and Joymolla, where patients receive treatment and medicines. Till date, over 27 health camps have been conducted, where over 4500 villagers were treated.

Tata Motors recently issued appointment letters to the first batch of   Industrial Training Institute (ITI)-educated Singur youth, who had been selected for a 6-month training at Tata Motors Jamshedpur plant since March 2007. Currently, 397 others are undergoing training. On successful completion of the training programme, the trainees will take the trade tests to qualify for trade certificates issued by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) and will become eligible for apprenticeship training at the Singur plant and vendor facilities.
