Maruti Suzuki India has signed a pact with Haryana Government to set up a model industrial training institute (ITI). The institute will be known as Japan-India Manufacturing (JIM), which will be located in Uncha Majra village of Gurugram district and expects to train over 500 individuals annually.
“While the state government has provided land and building, Maruti Suzuki will offer latest equipment and tools, employ industry experts as trainers and ensure students are trained in quality, safety, discipline, kaizen, and other Japanese practices so that they are employable and have a sound long-term career,” MSI Executive Director (Corporate Planning) A K Tomer said.
JIM is a joint initiative of the Japanese and Indian government to provide training opportunities for plugging the skill deficit in manufacturing. The first JIM was setup by Maruti Suzuki in 2017 at Mehsana, Gujrat. The first session at the Gurugram institute (JIM Uncha Majra) is expected to begin in August, 2019.
