Yamaha Motors India has signed a MoU with the Maharashtra government. The Japanese-based two-wheeler manufacturer will be setting up Yamaha Training Schools across the state. Several government-run polytechnics and technical colleges will get training schools by Yamaha.
The Japanese-based two-wheeler manufacturer will provide technical training. Yamaha's goal is to empower the youth and underprivileged individuals in Maharashtra. Individuals that are part of Yamaha's training school would be employed as technicians at Yamaha outlets.
Almost every two-wheeler and four-wheeler manufacturer take part in a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative. The goal is to provide some sort of support to the economically challenged or backward section within the country.
Yamaha is the only two-wheeler manufacturer that offers a training school in partnership with government institutes. This is Yamaha's fifth training school in Maharashtra and will be setting up one more soon with government run polytechnics in Pune.
Yamaha Motor India Sales, M.D., Masaki Asano, believes that a skill gap exists. The introducing of similar training schools can solve the issue and provide young Indians with a technical job. Repair and service industry in the country is increasing rapidly and more technicians will be required in the near future.
