In a joint ini­tia­tive, the Min­istry of Civil Avi­a­tion (MoCA) and Air Cargo Han­dling As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (ACHAI), con­ducted a one-day Ba­sic Cargo Aware­ness Pro­gramme (BCAP) at the Train­ing Cen­tre of DCSC Cargo Ter­mi­nal, Delhi Air­port on Oc­to­ber 20, 2015.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Mu­rali Ra­machan­dran, CEO, Celebi Air­port Cargo Ter­mi­nal Man­age­ment In­dia, said, “This is a great ini­tia­tive taken by the gov­ern­ment and in­dus­try. Skilled lo­gis­tics in­dus­try is the need of the hour.”

Renu Singh Par­mar, Eco­nomic Ad­vi­sor, Min­istry of Civil Avi­a­tion, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia added, “This is some­thing I have been look­ing for­ward to from a long time. It is good that the in­dus­try has taken over the charge of the re­quire­ments of the cargo in­dus­try. Sit­ting in the min­istry, we have a macro vi­sion of what is hap­pen­ing around, but peo­ple work­ing at the ground level know where the shoe pinches. This is one area which needs to be ad­dressed so that the Prime Min­is­ter’s vi­sion of ‘Skill In­dia’ is ful­filled.”

“For Dig­i­tal In­dia, we are in­tro­duc­ing EDI in our air­ports and also work­ing on e-mod­ules for the ef­fi­cient move­ment of cargo,” she said. “We need to make sure that skilling should be our pri­or­ity be­cause with skills only we can im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity and have value ad­di­tion to our in­dus­try.”

The course will be taken to other cities as well.
