The rapidly changing society and economic scenario worldwide requires specific skills for employment. Every job requires certain specialization. It becomes very difficult for poor people in urban, semi urban and rural areas to acquire skills and obtain employment as the skills training is very costly or not available at all. Realizing such a need, HPCL has tied up with expert partners to provide training in skills to such people, as per the requirement of industries/market and ensures employability for poor people.
