Nuvoco launched Nuvo Mason Skill Development Programme

Nuvoco Vistas Corp Ltd, India’s fifth-largest cement company and the largest cement player in the East, has launched the Nuvo Mason – a Masonry Skill Development Programme as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to benefit the unorganised masonry sector. The program kicked off in Village Badoli Ghata, in Chittorgarh on the outskirts of Nuvoco’s Chittorgarh Cement Plant and will be extended to other locations wherein Nuvoco operates.

Nuvoco has engaged LearNet Skills as an implementation partner. LearNet is one of the leading providers of vocational training programs in the country. With this program, Nuvoco intends to provide short-term skills development opportunities for youth and unorganized construction sector workers aligned with the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF). Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be certified by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).

Nuvo Mason is a training program designed to improve the masonry skills of workers, empower them, and open up new earning opportunities for them. This program consists of
approximately three hundred hours of training that includes both theoretical knowledge and practical application. A first batch of 25 participants has already been selected from the villages surrounding the company’s Chittorgarh Cement Plant. Among the subjects covered by the course are brick masonry, plastering (interiors), putty (interiors), tile masonry (floors and walls), and PCC work.

Mr. Jayakumar Krishnaswamy, Managing Director, Nuvoco Vistas Corp. Ltd, commented, “With a mission to become a leading building materials company delivering superior performance, we strive to meet customer expectations and provide solutions to construct a safe, durable, and aesthetically appealing home while staying abreast of current construction trends. In most cases, Individual Home Builders (IHBs) rely on the skills and knowledge of masons during the construction of a home. In addition to providing training in masonry skills, Nuvo Mason will enable its students to become financially and socially independent, thus improving their quality of life. With the help of this Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, we aim to build self-reliant local communities, thus creating a tangible benefit.”
