Jan – Mar 2022

At the Paint & Coatings Skill Council, we are making every effort to commit ourselves to engaging in fee-based
programmes and broadening the scope of our activities.
RPL programmes are being successfully completed under the auspices of the SANKALP initiative in Gujarat and
Bihar. This is after its successful launch in UP. The RPL initiative in Tamil Nadu was also successfully completed
with the help of Nippon Paints.
A new Short Term Training Programme initiated in Vikramghad has generated a lot of interest in Painting Job
Roles amongst youth in that tribal area. Paint Simulators are being used to teach young people the technique
of spray painting. MAD Foundation and Harris Brushes are leading the social initiative.
JKR Manpower in Thanjavur (TN) and Gulbarga Technical Institute in Gulbarga (Karnataka) are training Industrial
and Protective Coatings Painters for jobs overseas. This is indeed a great example of our skilled workforce
gaining recognition overseas for their skills.
Our World Skill training is going on in full swing at the Kolkata ITRAIN centre of Berger Paints who have
undertaken the responsibility of training our contestants for the World Skill Competition.Many other
noteworthy initiatives undertaken by BWI, MGN Fellows, Pratham and by us through social media and Online
Webinars find mention in our Newsletter.
