Castrol, India’s leading automotive and industrial lubricant manufacturing and marketing company, has announced a significant milestone of skilling 200,000 two-wheeler mechanics as part of its flagship community initiative, ‘Castrol Eklavya’.

Launched in 2009, the programme aims to provide training and upgrade skills of independent two-wheeler mechanics, preparing them for a rapidly changing automotive technology environment.

Started as a pilot programme in Tamil Nadu, the original programme was conceptualized and delivered by an in-house team, covering the basics and focusing on diagnostic skills. Over the years, the programme has evolved to cover 10 states and expanded the curriculum to include life skills, business skills and financial literacy training.

Keeping in line with the government’s mission of “Skill India”, this programme provides a comprehensive, structured approach to imparting knowledge-based skills to two-wheeler technicians. The training is aligned to National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF) and incorporates trade wise competencies designed in the National Occupation Standard (NOS) by automotive skill sector council.
