Brief details about the project

Recognition of Roadside Technicians:-

India Skill Revolution vision is to certify 1 Million (independent service mechanic- roadside technician) by 2024.

From FY 2020, new BSVI norms will be implemented, this will lead to complex technological changes. If these mechanics are not trained on BSVI technology, they will lose out their business to Authorised repair chains. At the same time, Authorised repair chains do not have the capacity to take this additional load creating chaos. Hence, upskilling of an existing road-side mechanic or independent repair is very important.

Under this initiative, ASDC submitted a project to upgrading the skill of 35,000 independent service mechanic-roadside technician on upcoming BS-VI norms under RPL-1 project.

RPL Camps (TYPE-1) means RPL training is imparted at a location (i.e. Industrial/Traditional Clusters) where workers from a sector are available in large numbers.

ASDC got an approval to implement in RPL-1 for 35000 roadside technician in  multiple states across India for following job Roles on 5th Nov 2019-

I am running automotive workshop but i was not having any certificate.
I took the RPL training under PMKVY and I participated in the training process in the month of November. I took my training in the service technician job role under Automotive Sector. I heard that through PMKVY the govt. of India is providing training and certificate for those who have a business stronghold and can have updated technology. The certificate and training seemed lucrative to me and that’s why I participated.
I believe that this training will definitely create a difference for me and I am also interested to work outside this region. The trainers taught us well and the practical sessions were also beneficial for us. This training has also improved our working ability. Apart from that we also learned different interview skills required for a job. These training will definitely help me to grow my business.

I took my RPL training of service technician under automotive Sector in the month of November. I participated in the training process to learn more about the working skills required to become a proper and skilled frame maker technician. I heard about this training when I attended a campaign from NTI. On that time I decided to participate in this training process and got certified. The govt. is doing a great job by providing training and certificate free of cost for the upliftment of those who are semi-skilled. Those workers who are interested to work outside their home city will also get benefited by this training and certificate.
The training process was nice. The trainers tough a lot to help us to understand the different values and aspects of our job sector. The training process was so nice and lucid that I am now able to understand the complex processes related to my job.

Being from a poor family earning was tough and I was pushed in the business of vehicle repairs. The working was tough as vehicles were updated technically and old business was dying post the training from RPL of 3 days I have learnt a lot. This learning has helped me to work professionally with proper usage of tools and equipment. Now the customers are happy with my work and business is growing.

I have been taking care of my family since childhood as my father passed away long ago. Having dependents in different ages is very tough to handle and the pressure of business is accordingly very tough. When I was approached to be part of automotive trainings I was not sure about the outcome yet I am confident that it changes us in every aspect. I was working but never received such insights to handle manpower and service customers; now I earn more with less pressure of success. I can cope with the responsibility of the full family easily now.

Working at the roadside shops is very tough specially when you have limited source of learnings and no one to guide you for the problems at hand. I have been handling different vehicles for the last 5 years and every time there has been new experiences to take home. I am glad to be trained by RPL which has given me the opportunity to learn new technology and my exposure has increased ever since.

Four wheeler is only name sake when you are working hard, sweating out day and night but not learning enough. It take a lot of time and money to learn things but thankfully RPL came as a gift in disguise from God. I have learnt a lot and many things have improved since in the name of earnings and prospects. Now I am confident while handling problems and giving resolutions to earn more.

People are always learning, everywhere and throughout the course of their lives. However, learning that takes place outside the formal education and training system is often not well understood or recognised.

Working in industry and acquiring knowledge through experience does not come with a certificate of competency recognizing the knowledge, skills and experience acquired. Recognition of all types of learning can result in benefits in the labour market, formal education and training, financially and in terms of self-esteem.

The RPL Assessment conducted by ASDC in our company is a big step in recognising the efforts of our workers.

The certificates received by the successful workers has immensely increased the self esteem of the employees.

In my 15 years of service in the manufacturing industry, this was the first time when I observed such an activity happening. Assessment questions were based on the Job role. The scheme identifies the gap in skills among the employees thus reducing our efforts for identifying training needs.

The process gave the company the status of Best In Class Employer. The Recognition & reward to the employee boosted their morale.

The overall scheme performance has really been good. However, there are certain areas which we would like to highlight which needs some improvisation.

Assessment was done for limited job roles. As a result, many employees left out as the job roles under which they were working were not part of the Assessment scheme.

During the course of the Assessment, the testing platform changed many times and resulted in creating confusion among the employees and the assessors. Our view is that once the scheme is rolled out, there should not be such big changes mid-way. We would like to make few suggestions keeping in mind our industry requirements. There should be some ore job roles to be provided for the assessment. If possible, some skill-based training should be included in the scheme.

The RPL scheme was absolutely superb and I genuinely enjoyed my role as the Employer Assessor. The scheme gave an opportunity of learning to all of us including the Assessor and the employees who underwent the Assessment. RPL gave an opportunity to refresh our learnings.

Our company is an auto parts manufacturer for many OEMs. Our revenue is based on the quality of our products. This in turn is dependent on the skills of our workers. The Assessment & certification made us realise the gap in skills of our workers. Now we are working on the knowledge gaps to promote a skilled workforce in our company.

We have to bring it on record that the entire Assessment was planned really well and was done in a manner that the production cycle was not disrupted. For most of the workers, this was the first time when such an activity was organised. Workers were also very happy about the fact that they would be getting certificates for the successful Assessments

This was a very good initiative by the Government to certify the employees for the skills acquired informally. It is really helping veteran employees to get recognized through a Skill Certificate by the Central government. Not only this, the RPL scheme is also providing opportunity for employees to refresh their knowledge / Skill.

Besides, it has also provided the organisations an additional Mechanism to evaluate the skill level of employees. Another positive aspect is that it has created competitive environment among employees However, we feel that quality of questions needs an improvement. They should be more aligned to the Job role.
