In a major recognition of its skill development initiatives, ONGC has been felicitated and honored by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship for exhibiting outstanding contribution towards development of future workforce, through engagement of apprentices in the organization during FY 2016-2019. ONGC has been selected for the award for engaging more than 4000 apprentices during the successive Financial Years.

On behalf of ONGC, ED-Chief SDCs Mr Somesh Ranjan and CGM (HR) Ms Shanthi Wadhwani received the certificate of appreciation award from the Minister of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey and Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Mr Raj Kumar Singh, at a function organized on 30 September 2019, on the occasion of Apprentice Day at New Delhi. Also present during the felicitation was Secretary- Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Dr K P Krishnan.

ONGC has responded in a big way to the National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS), launched on 19 August 2016 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The scheme aims to promote apprenticeship training throughout the country, since it is considered to be one of the most effective ways to develop skilled manpower for India, by providing industry-led, practice-oriented and effective mode of formal training.

Since the inception of this scheme, ONGC has over-achieved the target of engaging apprentices set by the government. In the second phase of NAPS, ONGC engaged more than 4000 apprentices in 30 diverse trades across its 22 work centers under the visionary leadership of Director (HR) Dr Alka Mittal, who was earlier leading the Skill Development initiative of ONGC. The trades are selected by the respective work centers as per their requirement which results in a win-win situation for both ONGC and the apprentices who are trained every year.
