manufactures and sells distribution transformers, power transformers and
switchgears, along with EPC business, has been certified by Japan's Ministry of
Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) as a Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing
The JIM Project is a part of the Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Program*1,
a joint program by METI and India's Ministry of Skill Development and
Entrepreneurship launched in November 2016. The project aims to establish
Japanese-style institutes in India for training Japanese standard shop floor leaders
and engineers, focusing on areas such as kaizen and the 5S (sort, set in order, shine,
standardize and sustain). These institutes will develop human resources that will
play central roles in the manufacturing sites of the future.
Since last year, TTDI has been providing fundamental skill training to newly hired
personnel and multi-skill training to existing employees at its human resource
development facility, the TTDI Skill Development Center. In recognition of its
efforts, METI has certified it as a JIM, and from April 2021, TTDI JIM will be
inaugurated in the TTDI Skill Development Center, the 15th accredited Japan-India
Institute for Manufacturing.
The new TTDI JIM will accept up to 120 under-graduates of local industrial training
schools as technical trainees each year. They will receive training regarding
welding, coil winding, assembly, painting, and more.
