DIMAPUR — A vocational training centre in Meluri town, Phek district, established by the Assam Rifles, has successfully trained 15 local women in stitching and embroidery.

Further, these women have been registered with the National Skill Development Corporation under the PM Vishwakarma Yojana, wherein benefits worth INR 19,000 will be directly transferred to their bank accounts.

The press release mentioned that the centre was established to provide instructional programmes and courses for local women, thereby promoting skill development at the grassroots level.

It was inaugurated with trainees and locals in attendance and is expected to generate opportunities for self-employment after providing quality skill development training to women.
