Twenty-six youth from six villages of Kheda and five villages of Anand benefitted from the skill development training program. The youth who underwent training received certificates for future entrepreneur training programme during a ceremony at Nadiad which witnessed presence of Kheda district collector Sudhir Patel, NHSRCL’s managing director Achal Khare, Kheda’s district superintendent of police Divya Mishra, NHSRCL, Vadodara’s chief project manager Pradeep Ahirkar, RUDSET’s director Arvind Mothaliya and more than 400 project affected persons and their families.

Similar training programs including those on mobile repairing, beauty parlor, bike repairing among others have been planned in various villages along the high-speed rail corridor.
After training, RUDSET will ensure that trained youth develop their own enterprises. “Since RUDSET is sponsored by two banks, they will also help the youth in getting loans. The institute will be providing handholding for at least two years till the candidates get established,” said Sushma Gaur, spokesperson of NHSRCL.
