Maruti Suzuki India Limited has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Government of Haryana to set up Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing (JIM), a model ITI, at Uncha Majra village in Gurugram district. Mr JIM Uncha Majra will be equipped with modern classrooms and latest training tools and equipment, including mini vehicle assembly line. Industry experts will impart training in eight trades related to automobile manufacturing, maintenance and service. Besides the core curriculum prescribed by NCVT, JIM will groom students in values of safety, quality, discipline, punctuality, Kaizen and other Japanese shop floor practices.

Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing (JIM) is born out of a collaboration between the Governments of Japan and India to create a pool of skilled manpower for manufacturing in India. It follows from a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) signed in 2016 between Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Government of Japan (METI) and Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India (MSDE), for a “Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Programme” to train 30,000 youths in India over 10 years.

Government of Haryana has provided land and building for the JIM at Uncha Majra. Maruti Suzuki will provide equipment, training modules and trained teachers, and will manage the institute.

The first JIM by Maruti Suzuki was setup at Mehsana, Gujarat in 2017. JIM Uncha Majra expected to start its first session by August 2019, will be the first in Haryana. Nearly 500 youth will be trained at this state-of-the-art model ITI.
