IMPHAL, May 25: The union minister DoNER, B K Handique, will be inaugurating a programme “Developing Managerial Skill for Entrepreneurship” at IIM Shillong on July 2. The programme will be conducted by the Rajiv Gandhi Indian Institute of Management, Shillong through its Centre for Development of North Eastern Region (CEDNER).
An emailed statement of the ministry has stated that the ministry of DoNER has sanctioned an amount of Rs.79.15 lacs for this programme for training 60 youths from the region.  The Course will deal with developing managerial skills among the new generation of entrepreneurs of the region. The program is supported under the “Technical assistance and Capacity Building Scheme” administer by the Ministry of DoNER, added the statement.
The ministry of DoNER and the North Eastern Council has collaborated with the Rajiv Gandhi Indian Institute of Management, Shillong to offer a range of short term skill development programmes encompassing the different areas of Management, Entrepreneurship, Tourism, Hospitality, among many others, from this financial year onwards, it stated.
According to the statement, this partnership is a result of the initiative of Bijoy Krishna Handique, union minister of DoNER and chairman, NEC who has been actively pursuing the agenda of involving the premier institutes in the North Eastern Region like IIM, IIT and Tata Institute of Social Sciences in the process of nurturing the human resources in the NER.
According to the statement BK Handique mentioned that “We have a larger roadmap in mind to continuously train youths from the Region with a focus on increasing their employability. The institutes like IIM, IIT and TISS are well positioned to cater to the training needs of the Region in addition to their regular courses. We have requested them to develop such courses and we have been able to make considerable headway in designing some. Our Ministry and its affiliated organisations like NEC will wholly sponsor these courses. I am hopeful that this development will bring some respite to the larger problem of unemployment in Region”.
