Rubber, Chemical and Petrochemical Skill Development Council (RCPSDC)

The Rubber sector is highly labour and energy intensive. Non-availability of skilled manpower in the sector is a major challenge in the productivity and growth of the industry. Rubber sector has acute shortage of skilled manpower that should be trained and equipped with the talent as per the industry requirement. As per the skill gaps identified in the primary survey conducted by RSDC brings to the fore that the current workers recruited in the rubber industry have generic employability skills and not specific task skills/knowledge.
