Ludhiana: A three days Skill Development Training on Processing and Value-Addition of Cereals under Scheduled Caste Sub Plan (SCSP) was inaugurated on 25 Nov 2020 at ICAR-CIPHET Ludhiana. Skill Development Training Programs are the initiative of the government to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood. Cereals are foods consumed in large quantity and at greater frequency by a vast majority of population in India and comprises the major segment of agricultural production of our country. For the agrarian based countries such as India it can be an important component of the economy and growth. But due to lack of awareness farmers/budding entrepreneurs from weaker section of society are not getting any benefit. Keeping in view of the welfare of scheduled caste budding entrepreneurs/farmers from nearby villages the institute conducted specialized training and 15 participants from SC community of Village Malakpur, Jainpur & Partap Singh Wala has attended the same.
