Prepare human resource modules, Governor tells CED

MADURAI OCT. 22. The Governor, P.S. Ramamohan Rao, has urged the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (Tamil Nadu) to prepare modules on accounting, human resource management and marketing for entrepreneurs.

The existing manuals can be modified to suit local requirements, he said, inaugurating its new campus at Perungudi, near here yesterday.

The CED should train new entrepreneurs under the `New Anna Marumalarchi Thittam' as also those in the countryside to provide on-the-job training in basic disciplines.

With Internet kiosks coming up in villages, there was need for more entrepreneurs to take care of e-governance and developmental activities. The CED should coordinate with the Mother Teresa Women's University for developing a training programme for women non-governmental organisations and self-help groups.

Giving the assurance, that the CED, supported by the Central and State Governments and NGOs, would help to convert expertise in academic institutions into productivity, the president of the governing board, K. Aludiapillai, said the thrust was on helping youth flourish through innovation. The CED's primary activities were promotion of self-employment and entrepreneurship, enhancement of employment through skill training, NGO capacity building, women empowerment and industrial consultancy.

R. Jayaraman, CED member-secretary, said the new campus with buildings on 25,000 square feet, had provision for an information technology incubator centre, teaching halls, 10 residential cottages and a swimming pool and facilities for a catering institute.
