He was present at the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Automotive Skills Development Council and Toyota Kirloskar motors. At the signing, the minister announced that about 40 per cent of the automotive industry-related research and development is accomplished in India and with the expansion in the use of electronics in automobiles, the country is expected to become the leading centre hub for the sector.

“Auto-sector in India represents a huge opportunity in the next 5-6 years. It is expected that we will create not less than 1 crore jobs for youth in another 5-6 years. It is a very fast-growing segment for our manufacturing economy,” Minister of State for Skills and Development Rajeev Chandrasekhar said.

Minister of State for Skills and Development Rajeev Chandrasekhar also added that it is necessary to urge all manufacturing companies, be it mobile phones, laptops, etc to partner with National Skill Development Corporation and give relevant practicum to youth to fulfil Prime Minister Modi’s wish of making India a hub of skilled force for the world, and achieving the full status of Aatmnirbhar Bharat.
