In the field of power sector there are no formal studies available in institutions which can equip a person with knowledge of different inputs required for the job performance. Special training is necessary for personnel at every level in the industry to keep abreast with rapidly advancing state of the-art technology in the power industry that we started our RPL program in 2017. We are happy that we could train & certify 7500+ electricians till now & this job fair is our next step to create further impact to our beneficiaries lives by connecting them with prospective employers. Based on this event’s success, we plan to conduct more such job fairs in future in other cities as well

Through this opportunity, it would enhance Women empowerment mission under this CSR project. To add further this will increase a scope to showcase CSR project in various forum as multifaceted project which breaks the boundaries by facilitating women to enter in the Electrical trade and contribute.”
