Maruti Suzuki to set up its 4th Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing (JIM) in Haryana

Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has announced signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the Government of Haryana to set up second Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing (JIM), in Haryana, at Kansala, near Rohtak.

Spread over five acres, the existing ITI Kansala will be upgraded to a JIM with an investment of 5.8 crore as a CSR activity of the company, the company said in a statement.

Rahul Bharti, Executive Director, Corporate Affairs, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “The Indian passenger vehicle industry is now world’s third largest and growing. It is our responsibility to prepare human capacity corresponding to manufacturing capacity to meet this growth". "Skilling our youth with industry ready skills will help us realize the vision of an Atmanirbhar Bharat. We are glad to partner with the Haryana Government and share the common vision of training and skilling the youth so that they can contribute towards the growth of Haryana.” he added.

As per Bharti, Maruti Suzuki India has been operating Japan-India Institutes for Manufacturing (JIMs) since 2017. The key feature of the JIM is that the equipment on which the students are trained is almost like that in a modern production factory. "In addition, there is a focus on safety, quality, discipline, punctuality, Kaizen, and other Japanese shop floor practices along with the core curriculum prescribed by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT). That helps better employability" Bharti continued.

Located about 16 kms from the upcoming automobile hub Kharkhoda, JIM Kansala will offer extensive career opportunities to the students trained at the ITI. The government of Haryana has provided the land and building for the JIM, Kansala. Maruti Suzuki will provide equipment, training modules, trained teachers, and will manage this institute for 15 years, the company statement adds.
