Primero Skills and Training Pvt Ltd, a Delhi-based private skill development outfit, said it has given training to 276 unskilled unemployed in tea plantation work in North Bengal and Assam under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana.

“We have a tie-up with Jardine Handerson Ltd for absorption of these trained and certified job seekers in the company’s tea gardens,” said Jayanta Das, Managing Partner/ Director of Primero, said here on Wednesday.

The firm has set up five training centres in Assam and three in West Bengal for tea plantation work alone.

It is also beginning training in tourism/ hospitality, banking and financial services and bamboo plantation in West Bengal, Assam, Mizoram and Tripura. It has plans to set up training centres in Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha. In each skill set area, the organisation is also trying to create job or entrepreneurial opportunities for the trained.
