India’s Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Dharmendra Pradhan launched ‘Plumber Konnect’ for certified plumbers.

New Delhi: Plumber Konnect, world’s first Mobile App which aims to bring certified plumbers closer to its users was launched at ‘Plumbing Skills Mahotsav’ organised by the apex skilling body of the Indian Plumbing Industry, IPSC (Indian Plumbing Skills Council).

Plumbing Skills Mahotsav also witnessed the best plumbers being handpicked for international and domestic placements by the companies as a part of the Job Fair.

Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship said, “With a workforce of more than 8 lakh, the plumbing community is one of the largest in India. Building a New India will require a highly skilled workforce including those in the plumbing sector. It is our responsibility to update our workforce in plumbing sector with skills & technology to meet the demands of evolving market and aspirations of a New India. The nature of plumbing industry is also evolving fast. We must keep pace with the rapid changes to build a world class skilled workforce in the plumbing sector. We will ensure every plumber has a bank account, has a life, accident & health insurance to cover for his/her needs.”

“With majority of the plumbing industry workforce in India informally trained, it is imperative for us to incorporate technological interventions to expand the horizon of skill training across our plumbing workforce to match with the global standards,” further added Pradhan.

He also appealed the plumbing community to avail loan facility under MUDRA Yojana and walk on the path of self-employment and evolve from being job seekers to job creators.

Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi lauded the efforts of IPSC in a written message, “The Skilling world has its eyes set on scale, speed and precision, the three cornerstones on which the event will be poised, I believe. “Plumbing is a technical skill having a vast range of application across all the sectors of Economy – Agricultural, Manufacturing, Industrial, Construction and Domestic. Latest plumbing techniques can go a long way in maintaining public health and realizing environment-related goals such as effective water management and its conservation.”

Dr R K Somany, Chairman, Indian Plumbing Skills Council (IPSC) said, “Plumbers are the first soldiers in the line of defense against issues such as water shortage, water-borne diseases and play a very vital role in keeping the society clean and safe. We have made a promise to the community and country to train a workforce of 12 Lakh by 2022, out of which we have already trained and certified more than 90,000 plumbers. IPSC, through its various activities, is putting Indian plumbers on a global platform.”
