Business Sphere - - RAJIV PRATAP RUDY - By Deepshikha Singh

In the first pro­gram of its kind in In­dia , over 500 Do­mes­tic work­ers (their to­tal num­ber in the coun­try could be 20 mil­lion) who had been trained un­der the RPL (Recog­ni­tion of Prior Learn­ing) pro­gram of NSDC/ MSD&E re­ceived cer­tifi­cates from the Union Min­is­ter of State (In­de­pen­dent charge) Min­istry of Skill De­vel­op­ment and En­trepreneur­ship in New Delhi. The train­ing of th­ese work­ers was con­ducted by the cer­ti­fied train­ers of PRAYAS NGO. What is spe­cial about th­ese do­mes­tic work­ers, about whom most of us even care to think, is that th­ese se­lected work­ers were from the pres­ti­gious New Moti Bagh area, In­dia’s elite bu­reau­cratic hub who en­thu­si­as­ti­cally par­tic­i­pated in the upgra­da­tion pro­gramme and they were al­lowed per­mis­sion and time by their em­ploy­ers to take up the skilling pro­gram. So ex­cited was Mr.Ra­jiv Pratap Rudy at the Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Cer­e­mony or­ga­nized by Do­mes­tic Work­ers Sec­tor Skill Coun­cil (DWSSC) that he ex­claimed “His­tory is Cre­ated To­day”. Ex­plain­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of this day he said that it was the first time ever in the In­dian his­tory, that do­mes­tic work­ers have been trained, cer­ti­fied and fa­cil­i­tated by any Min­istry of In­dian Gov­ern­ment. He ad­mit­ted that this train­ing might not be suf­fi­cient for the work­ers but it was enough to raise their own self-es­teem and said that this was the first step to­wards the path of get­ting rec­og­nized in so­ci­ety. He also con­grat­u­lated the work­ers for com­plet­ing their train­ing and said that this would open the way for achiev­ing newer mile­stones and they could now get suc­cess not only in In­dia but also abroad af­ter get­ting trained by DWSSC.

While wel­com­ing the Hon’ble Min­is­ter, Mr. R P Rudy, the Chair­man of DWSSC Mr. Amod K Kanth who is also Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of Prayas , men­tioned that the do­mes­tic work­ers who are es­ti­mated to be nearly 20 mil­lion in In­dia, are an in­evitable part of In­dian fam­i­lies and so­ci­ety. Af­ter the for­ma­tion of DWSSC within the Na­tional Level Skilling Pro­gram of the NSDC/ MSD&E new job roles like, House­keep­ing, Cook­ing, Child Care, El­derly Care, Pre & Post Natal Care have been de­vel­oped for Na­tional Level Oc­cu­pa­tional Stan­dards, As­sess­ments and Cer­ti­fi­ca­tions as per the NSQF. He in­formed that 546 can­di­dates had al­ready been trained un­der this pro­gram in New Moti Bagh and thanked the em­ploy­ers of th­ese work­ers who en­cour­aged their work­ers to be a part of the train­ing pro­gram. Mr. Kanth thanked the other dig­ni­taries present namely Mr. Pawan Agar­wal, CEO Food Safety and Stan­dards Au­thor­ity of In­dia (FSSAI), who took the ini­tia­tive and sup­ported DWSSC in con­duct­ing this pro­gram in New Moti Bagh, Mr. Ra­jiv Sharma, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Em­power Pra­gati and DWSSC CEO Maj Gen Manik Sabb­har­wal (Retd.) All the proud work­ers who at­tended the cer­e­mony were very en­thu­si­as­tic about their train­ing and shared their ex­pe­ri­ence with the dig­ni­taries present, post­train­ing as to how it had helped them not only in their pro­fes­sional but also en­riched their per­sonal lives.
