Mukhyamantri Eprentice Bharti Mela 2018-19

The geographic advantage of 1600 kms. coastline gives Gujarat a strong connect with trade routes of many countries. It makes Gujarat a high contributor in the GDP of the country. Government of Gujarat considers skill development for better employment generation and inclusive growth as the way to rapid and sustainable growth.

The state has substantial scheme training avenues through Government schemes. Interactions with industry in the state, have revealed that there are challenges related to quality of the workforce, rather than quantity. The quality issues are serious considerations for relevant actions. Also regional distinctions have been observed in the skill requirements .Augmentation of industry participation to meet the quality expectation is imperative. Sustainable and well planned interventions to bridge the gap by providing platforms for hands on training to the trainees have already been taken up to give direct exposure to the industry practices which will enhance the learning and improve the quality of training.

Scenario of apprenticeship training in Gujarat:
In order to further strengthen the apprenticeship training in Gujarat and enhance the impact of a flagship scheme, Mukhyamantri Apprenticeship Training Scheme (MATS) has been launched in 2018, by the state government in alignment with National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS).

Realising the significance of industry participation in skill development, the scheme envisages to collaborate and partner with the large base of industries in Gujarat. The aim is to encourage them to take up apprentices and support in improving the quality of skill training in Gujarat.

The scheme incentivises the industries through the plan drawn below:

  • Graduate Apprentices – Rs. 3000 per month
  • Diploma Apprentices – Rs. 2000 per month
  • Trade & Other Apprentices – Rs. 1500 month

This is over and above the reimbursement given under NAPS & NATS.

The key beneficiaries of this flagship schemes is the industries who will collaborate in implementation of apprenticeship training scheme. They will be incentivised for their initiatives. The apprentices trained under the scheme will also benefit through active involvement of industries in the training.

Around 8 government departments are involved in skill training in Gujarat. MATS has brought all these departments under one umbrella and seeks active participation to achieve maximum targets in apprenticeship training in various sectors and spheres.

MATS has adopted a holistic approach similar to NAPS. It not only includes training in manufacturing sectors but also in various service sectors. This has led to broader horizons for the trainees to take up apprenticeship training.
