Mobile repairing training course at Babrala:

TCSRD in partnership with NABARD started mobile repairing course. 30 youth were selected and trained to start a business, for a period of two month. The trainers were from District Industry Center, Regional Rural Bank and Ideal Institute of Technology. 17 young entrepreneurs, out of the 30 trained, came together to established their individual set up. Opening of the shop by the group of 17 boys from the same course was the biggest achievement. They achieved economies of scale by buying the raw material together in bulk at cheaper rates. They have started earning profits of approximately Rs 5000 to 8,000 on their investment of Rs 50,000. 5 others from the group of 30 have expanded the shop run by their family members.
