Skill development training can promote economically self-reliant entrepreneurs. The practice can solve the issue of unemployment through job creation in diverse sectors, including agriculture and industries. Chief Minister of Maharashra, Devendra Fadnavis said that interacting with ITI students.

 

During the occasion, CM fielded a wide range of questions from students across 32 centres in Vidarbha, North Maharashtra, Western Maharashtra, Konkan, Marathwada etc. The students raised questions related to skill development and ITI.

 

“Skill development training transformed into human resources will play a significant role in ending unemployment and lead to growth in diverse sectors,” Fadnavis said.

 

He further said, “Skill development in the agriculture sector alone is vast and multi-faceted but has remained unexplored. Apart from farming, there are linkages of farm produce with the food processing industry and agro-infrastructure too.”
