DEOLALI CAMP: MP Godse’s efforts for ambitious CIPET project to provide education, training and employment to the youth in the district have finally bore fruit. Following the approval of the state government, the central government has also given green signal to the proposed project in Nashik.
This will speed up the approval process and explore new avenues of employment for the enterprising youth. The proposed project will cost around Rs 90 crore, of which the state and central governments will share 50 per cent each The state government will also provide the land.
The project will be a boon for the youth of the district. It will also provide vocational education and training opportunities to about 2000 youths every year and provide them easy employment. With a view to provide vocational education training to the unemployed youth in the district, the state and Centre have finally agreed upon the project of Central Institute of Petrochemicals Engineering and Technology (CIPET) at Govardhan Shivar.
The demand for education and training of the unemployed youths in the district was constantly coming to the fore from companies and industrialists in industrial estates like Ambad, Satpur, Gonde, Musalgaon and Malegaon.
In this regard, MP Godse had initiated efforts with the central and state governments for CIPET since last year. He had also followed up with Baldev Singh, secretary of the CIPET administration in Delhi and the state’s industry department and had also suggested suitable government sites in Govardhan Shivar near Satpur, Shinde in Nashik tehsil and Syed Pimpri Shivar for the project.
As MP Godse’s demand was justified, the government has approved the proposal to set up a CIPET. For this project, the industry department of the state government has allotted a government plot in Govardhan Shivar. Earlier a letter was sent to the District Collector by Ravindra Gurav, Joint Secretary of the state’s industry, energy and labour department and orders have been issued to transfer 12.33 hectares of land out of 33 for the project.
