Honda (India) collaborates with ITI for skill enhancement
Committed to Skill India Mission, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) has started Delhi’s third Skill Enhancement Centre at Malviya Nagar, collaborating with Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Delhi.

The new centre became operational in February 2022 and aimed at empowering local youth with job-oriented technical skill training in the city.

The inauguration was witnessed by top dignitaries of the industry and the government. These included O.P. Shukla (Joint Director Planning, Department of Training & Technical Education, Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi), BS Negi (Deputy Director Training, Department of Training & Technical Education, Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi), Vijay Kumar (Principal, Government Industrial Training Institute, Malviya Nagar, New Delhi), Rahul Sharan (Senior Manager - Skill Enhancement, Customer Service Technology & Customer Relations, HMSI) and other dignitaries from Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Private Limited.

HMSI’s Skill Enhancement Centre at ITI Malviya Nagar has a fully functional workshop with two-wheelers and service infrastructure to give practical training to students on technical aspects of two-wheelers maintenance and repair. HMSI will also support recruitment opportunities to successful candidates at HMSI dealerships after completion of the training program.

Pradeep Pandey, Senior Vice President - Customer Service, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd., said, “Fulfilling our commitment to up-skill local youth and enhance their employability, we are proactively supporting the Skill India Mission to empower Indian youth. The BSVI emission norms have raised the demand for a skilled technical workforce in the automobile sector. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, students could not get hands-on practical training. HMSI’s third Skill Enhancement Centre in Delhi at Malviya Nagar will provide an improved facility to recoup for practical training while ensuring all safety protocols. Further, we will continue to inaugurate more centres in other parts of the country.”

Fulfilling its corporate social responsibility, HMSI has taken several initiatives in Skill Development. To bridge the requirement and availability of trained human resources in the automotive sector, HMSI is setting up Skill Enhancement Centres across India. Currently, HMSI operates 48 skill enhancement centres across 19 states in India.
