  • Chandigarh fastener industry faces negative growth

    2 November 2011| Business Standard

    The fastener industry in Chandigarh is staring at negative growth this year. Industrialists cite the firming up of raw material prices and the high cost of working capital as the two major factors why they expect 15-20 per cent negative growth this year. TERI, which is implementing a World Bank-aided project together with the Small Industries Development Bank of India (Sidbi), quotes a diagnostic study conducted for the Chandigarh fastener industry as saying that the industry does not have any infrastructure in place for training workers.

  • Indian solar energy industry will need 1 lakh people by 2022

    1 November 2011| The Economic Times

    For those eyeing the energy sector for jobs, solar energy companies could just be their next big destination. To fulfill targets of 20,000 MW of installed capacity under the National Solar Mission, the Indian solar energy industry will need an estimated 1 lakh people by 2022 across domains, profiles and levels. That as the sector invests nearly Rs 4,337 crore by the end of the mission period. The scarcity of talent is severe as there are few colleges or institutes offering courses dedicated to solar energy or renewable energy. According to some estimates, there are 25 institutes in India offering courses on energy studies, with renewable energy as one of the subjects. These include the IITs, TERI University in Delhi, Indraprastha University in Delhi, Anna University in Tamil Nadu, and Amity University in Uttar Pradesh.
