Daiki Axis India, a company specializing in smaller STPs has signed an MoU with Sri Vishwakarma Skill University for imparting skill development courses in water conservation and wastewater recycling. The courses aim at skilling youths and potential workers to gain expertise in onsite wastewater treatment systems.
The initiative was set in motion during the momentous inauguration of the Johkasou Onsite Sewage Treatment Plant. Johkasou is a Japanese concept and technology promoted by the Government of Japan under its policy to treat the wastewater.
Rio Waza, Managing Director, Daiki Axis India said: “Inspired by the several million life affected positively we aim to build a replica model and run it successfully in India. Having the potential to learn and implement the skills, we have high hopes that the youth of the nation will soon find their career opportunities in this field.”
Keeping immense potential and opportunities to treat the wastewater, India is in need of vision and a skilled workforce for the rising sector. Furthermore, lack of skilled workforce and good O&M have been identified as the biggest reasons for the failure of Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) across the country.
Raj Nehru, Vice Chancellor, Shri Vishwakarma Skill University, said : “We will start the training of beneficiaries phase wise and will significantly involve practical sessions so that their training could match with the actual job on the field. We hope to contribute in government of India’s Sustainable Development Goals focusing Swacch Bharat Mission, Smart City and Jal Jeevan Mission. We are highly dedicated towards our mission of focusing on quality of skill education, aspired by students and admired by industry, nationally and internationally”
