  1. 1. SPRING Skills Program for Inclusive Growth Presentation by Dr.N.V.R.Nathan [email_address] IL&FS Cluster Development Initiative Limited
  2. 2. What is SPRING? <ul><li>It is a large scale and demand driven skills training and placement programs, particularly for BPL families </li></ul><ul><li>It is aimed to benefit the BPL youths from the growing economy while also benefitting the employing industries by providing them skilled manpower at a minimal cost </li></ul><ul><li>It is managed by IL&FS Cluster Development Initiatives Ltd (ICDI) and supported by the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India and the Garments & Apparel Industry </li></ul>
