President stresses on quality skill training for youth

New Delhi, Oct 9 (IANS) President Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday underlined the need to equip the youth with necessary skills through proper training and facilitate their greater interaction with the industry.

The President stated that the new academic block of IKRDC would prove useful in providing training to a larger number of people in the area.

Apart from the importance of training, the President also stressed on the need for interaction with the industry and establishing linkages with the market and local institutions.

Among the dignitaries present on the occasion were Member of Parliament and Chairman of IKRDC Abhijit Mukherjee and KVIC Deputy CEO (Eastern Zone) Satya Pal.
