Catering to the demand, the KSDC will soon start English language training at their skill training centres, Kanagavalli explained. After learning that Slovakia has elicited interest in recruiting over two and half thousand assembly line operators from the state, Patil directed the officials of his department to ink an agreement with the External Affairs ministry, the Minister’s office said in a statement.

The department invited eligible candidates and started recruitment process and as part of this arrangement, a batch of 94 candidates, including 54 ITI and 31 diploma holders were sent to Slovakia, it added. All the recruited candidates were imparted free training at Toyota Kirloskar unit in Bidadi in Ramanagara district on the outskirts of Bengaluru. The training was funded entirely by the department as the candidates hailed from economically weaker sections, who otherwise would needed to pay 35,000 as fee.
