The Quality Council of India (QCI) on Nov 29 launched Gunvatta Gurukul, a pioneering initiative to cultivate a cadre of young professionals through an 8-week transformative leadership programme. Students of the Gunvatta Gurukul will be receiving a monthly stipend of Rs 15,000 during the training period and top performers will gain the opportunity to be employed with QCI and associated bodies at the end of the training. Tailored for recent graduates from any field of study and young professionals with 0-2 years of experience, Gunvatta Gurukul focuses on enhancing their skills for successful engagement in their professional journey through our extensive curriculum including diverse set of modules such as Campus to Workplace, QCI Leadership Connect Sessions, Research, Data Analysis, Interpretation & understanding and implementing quality standards.

Rajesh Kumar Singh, Secretary, DPIIT, inaugurated the QCI Gunvatta Gurukul in New Delhi and highlighted how government structure and public policy play a crucial role in fostering a conducive environment for learning. “In the ever-evolving landscape of India, hurtling towards development by 2047, Gunvatta Gurukul is a unique mission committed to narrowing the divide between potential and opportunity for our young professionals who want to build Viksit Bharat (developed India).

Jaxay Shah, Chairperson, QCI, rang the bell and traditionally inaugurated the ‘Gunvatta Gurukul’ in an event organized for the launch at Hindi Bhavan. Chairperson, QCI, emphasised on the need of cultivating and empowering young minds in order to achieve the vision of a ‘Developed India 2047’. He asserted, “Gunvatta Gurukul is not merely a training programme; it is a testament to our commitment to nurturing a generation of young professionals who will be the architects of a Viksit Bharat. Through this programme, we are on a mission to identify candidates who exhibit qualities such as innovation, passion for impact, diversity and inclusion, and effective communication. The programme aims to create a dynamic cohort of individuals who will be the torchbearer of quality, standardization, and excellence in every sector they work for.”

Rajesh Kumar Singh, Secretary, DPIIT, said, “Indian digital economy is developing at a higher rate than even some developed nations. For instance, if we look at Germany, we are currently 10 years ahead from it in digital infrastructure. The Gunvatta Gurukul initiative will certainly lead India towards research and data analysis via public policy to achieve the goal of becoming developed nation by 2047 as mentioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister under Amrit Kaal. Very few Universities have public policy as a major part of their curriculum and therefore, Gunvatta Gurukul programme will enrich students with understanding of the government ecosystem and will also give access to students to get jobs at much faster pace.”

“One of the most unique aspects of this programme is that Gunvatta Gurukul will equip the young professionals with the knowledge of the Government /ecosystem along with the understanding of the framework in the public policy domain. There will be extensive experiential learning for them through case studies and fieldwork”, said Rajesh Maheshwari, Secretary General, QCI. He added that “This platform aims to embody the values of the Quality Council of India. Through this initiative, we aim to shape the next generation of leaders who will contribute significantly to the progress and prosperity of our nation.”

Highlighting the primary goal of Gunvatta Gurukul, Subroto Ghosh, Head, Gunvatta Gurukul Programme, said, “This programme will create a pool of skilled and passionate individuals who will play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between education and industry readiness and become an integral part of the vision of a ‘Developed India by 2047’.”
