Rubber Skill Development Council To Re-skill One Lakh Tyre Mechanic

The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has directed Rubber Skill and Development Council (RSDC) to accelerate the drive of re-skilling tyre mechanics for road safety and efficient transport.

The Ministry has set a target of 1 lakh tyre mechanic to be re-skilled and certified during the current fiscal. The order comes in the wake of a successful programme involving 35,000 tyre fitters during the current fiscal year so far who has been assessed, re-skilled, upskilled and certified covering 119 districts across 19 states under the ‘Saamarth’ project of RSDC.

Instead of classroom training, specially developed mobile skill vans carrying tyre fitting and repairing equipment and manned by trained staff are reaching out to tyre mechanics in the country. Till now 18 mobile vans have been flagged off by Mahendra Nath Pandey, Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, taking the total number of vans to 40.

Tyre mechanics are largely unorganised and unskilled. However, they play a vital role safe and efficient movement of vehicles. RSDC has taken this initiative of training tyre mechanics with a view of promoting road safety. Under the programme, tyre fitters are being taught to implement best practices and safety methods to be followed during wheel alignment and changing of tyre, said Vinod Simon, Chairman RSDC.
