Dear Friends ,
The National Training Program (NTP) is a mega capacity building and HRD initiative under Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY) project which aims at providing need based skill development training to as many as 1,25,000 C&D category employees across the country and utilities till the end of 12th Plan i.e. March 2017. Now, the scheme is changed as Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyothi Yojana (DDUGJY). Having appointed as Nodal Agency for its implementation, Rural Electrification Corporation (REC)/ Central Institute for Rural Electrification (CIRE) has been steering its implementation. Till March 2017, 1,28,002 C&D employees were trained in 5,527 batches across the utilities. Thus, making available a strong pool of trained manpower. These programmes were delivered either by Training Institutes of Power Utilities by themselves or by Independent Training Institutions empanelled by CIRE for the purpose.
C&D training programme aims at equipping employees such as Linesmen, Meter Readers, Billing and Revenue Collection staff etc. who operate at cutting edge level with much needed skills and competencies which is expected to help them deliver their responsibilities in superior manner leading to reduction in repair and maintenance cycle time, reduced pilferage of electricity, improved safety of staff and achieving a degree of consumer satisfaction.
Through this portal, I fervently appeal to all the Utilities to come forward and take advantage of these two capacity building initiatives, funded by Government of India, Ministry of Power and implemented by REC/CIRE which is in the larger interest of all stakeholders.
