AICTE ties up with Khadi to help students get internship opportunities

KVIC will pay students Rs. 5000/month

New Delhi, Jan. 28 (Delhi Crown): The All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on Friday announced its association with Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) with an aim to provide students (both, UG and PG) with internship opportunities and build entrepreneurial skills.

AICTE Chairman Anil D. Sahasrabudhe and KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena announced the partnership during a webinar.

The webinar was organised with an aim to understand the role of KVIC in making India and its villages self-reliant, and how the AICTE faculty members and

students can become entrepreneurs at a local level and provide employment to skilled and unskilled labour.

For internship opportunities, students can get in touch with KVIC state/ divisional offices and on selection will get to work across different departments of their interest. Additionally, the internship opportunities with KVIC will also be uploaded on AICTE internship portal.

Under the programme, the students will also be paid a stipend of Rs. 5,000 per month during the internship period. KVIC is also planning to roll out a scholarship programme for students to undertake research projects on its multiple schemes.

Speaking at the webinar, Sahasrabudhe said: “I am delighted to announce our partnership with KVIC would benefit our students. KVIC draws inspiration from

Gandhi Ji. We talk about Atmanirbhar Bharat and it shall become Atmanirbhar in true sense when all the villages, talukas, districts, and states become self-reliant. That’s why Gandhi Ji always talked about Gram Swaraj. Today India is a giant in the ITES industry. Now time has come to ensure how we can help villages through ITES and make them more self-reliant and promote entrepreneurship.”

On the occasion, KVIC’s Saxena said that the internship programme will help students gain valuable experience through challenging projects. “KVIC has a lot of platforms through which students can connect. I will urge all the faculty members and the students to work towards the upliftment of the country through the multiple schemes that KVIC runs across the country. KVIC has always taken on challenging initiatives. I will urge students not to think too much about being job takers but believe in becoming job givers through their entrepreneurial skills.”
