As a step to resolve and enhance the skill development at a rapid pace the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has amended the apprentices Act, 1961 to make it more responsive to industry as well as youth.
The amended Apprentices Act is aimed to facilitate the process of spreading awareness among the youths.
Meanwhile, a 10 episode programme titled ‘Hunnarbaaz’ on Apprenticeship Training Scheme will be telecasted on Doordarshan National to make aware the Public at large about the Apprenticeship Training Scheme and its utilities in building skill in the country especially for the youth, an official told Bureaucracy Today.
While Hunnarbaaz is a pioneering TV show that spotlights skills and innovations the show is believed to help millions of young Indians to become aware of the various ways in which they can upgrade their skills, become employable and commercially utilise their inventive genius to provide for themselves.
The 1st episode of ‘Hunnarbaaz’ will be telecasted on 18th October, 2015 at 11:30 am on DD National Channel. Thereafter remaining 9 episodes will be telecasted on every Sunday on the same channel at the same time
