CII has created a Development Council at the national level to initiate developmental interventions in the backward areas across India. The primary aim of the council is to implement and monitor the progress of different interventions in different districts identified in the country. The CII Development Council intends to deepen industry’s engagements in the social sector through productive partnerships and building multi-stakeholder synergies in order to deliver greater value to businesses and society.
Coochbehar was identified as one of the districts in West Bengal which was to be covered under the study. The Employability Potential Assessment Study and District Development Plan of Coochbehar provides information about training needs of the people based on employment/self employment opportunities in the district and availability of local natural resources. It also suggests strategy for future skill interventions on short term, midterm and long term basis.
