The program will focus on providing young people with industry-relevant technical and soft skills that make them easily employable in the automobile retail price chain. The three-year program will include one year of classroom training and then two years of on-the-job training at a Maruti Suzuki approved dealership.

“One of the major challenges facing the automobile industry is the availability of skilled workers. Through our collaboration with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences-School of Vocational Education, we want to bridge this gap,” said Manoj Agrawal, Executive Vice President, MSI.

He added that the mandatory 2-month job of the job will provide students with in-depth knowledge, prepare them to face real life challenges and prepare them for the industry.

The Maruti and TISS-SVE co-created course syllabus, compliant with the UGC guidelines and includes full spectrum business processes of the automobile trade.

In addition to hands-on experience at the dealership, students will be taught Japanese work culture, soft skills, and more.

The first batch session of the 2021-22 academic year will start from October 2021.

Shalini Bharat, vice-chancellor of TISS, said.

MSI’s MoU with TISS-SVE is a continuation of efforts to provide skills-based training programs to youth across the country.
