A SESSION on awareness about ‘Yogyata Vikas’ was recently organised by IIF Nagpur Chapter at Hotel Hardeo, Nagpur. The programme was presided by Anuja Sharma, Chairperson of Indian Institute of Foundrymen (IIF) Nagpur Chapter. Dr N P Sinha, Chairman of Centre for Educational Services was the main speaker and chief guest was Sushil Sharma, Chairman, IIF Western Region.

Saurabh Mohta, Joint Secretary, IIF Nagpur Chapter compered the session proceedings.
Anuja Sharma talked briefly about IIF’s intention behind the Yogyata Vikas programme and how the world sees quality in castings and how IIF is striving to bring about the improvement in Indian foundries through the Yogyata Vikas and various other programmes. She said that the members should take the benefit out of such programmes.

The main session was taken over by Dr N P Sinha. He covered all the 12 modules of the Yogyata Vikas programme and gave details of the syllabus covered and styles of teaching in the training during the Yogyata Vikas programme. To give a deeper idea on the contents of the modules, Dr Sinha chose 2 modules viz., defects in castings and pattern making and practices. He covered various contents of both the modules and showed the depth with which the modules are prepared to bring about the improvement in the foundries from the moulders to the engineers.

The basics of the reasons of the defects, relevance to charging mistakes and wrong methods contributing to the rejections in foundries were covered in the session.
The presentation which was over 100 slides long was well covered within the stipulated time. It created a deeper curiosity amongst the members to learn about the modules and select the relevant modules for their foundries. Jayaswals Neco and Truform Techno Products Ltd have shown their readiness to organise the Yogyata Vikas sessions in their foundries.

Sushil Sharma summed up the session with the context to his experiences in foundries and importance of Yogyata Vikas programmes in bringing about quality and efficiency improvement in foundries. “Indian foundries should upgrade skill sets of workers and improve quality to be competitive in domestic and international market”, he added.

The programme concluded by presenting of IIF Nagpur Chapter momentos to Dr N P Sinha and Sushil Sharma. Present were R G Paranjape, Vice-Chairman, Gautam Roy, Secretary and Saurabh Mohta, Joint Secretary, IIF Nagpur Chapter.
