Updated on 10 July, 2016 at 1:24 pm By

Filmmaker Prakash Jha is planning to set up a skill development centre in Bhopal with an investment of Rs.100 crore.

The skill development centre will primarily impart vocational training to those associated with the Indian film industry.

However, other vocations related to the hospitality, health and automobile sectors will also be taught.

According to Dainik Bhaskar, Jha met Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan on Saturday to present his proposal.

If given the green signal, the centre will come up at Baerkhadi village near Ratibad in Bhopal. Jha said that he owns around 22 acres of land there.

The acclaimed filmmaker believes that the Central India location of the centre will benefit people from neighbouring states.

The MP government will study Jha’s proposal. According to a policy, the state government can grant anywhere between Rs.50 lakh to Rs.5 crore for land acquisition.

Jha has also learnt to have advised the government to create a policy that would attract filmmakers to the state, on the lines of Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand.

Jha had shot his last film ‘Jai Gangajal’ in Madhya Pradesh, in which he himself played a state police officer.

In September 2015, film actor Kamal Haasan had himself pointed out the need for film crew to be given proper training for their development and employability. In November that year, the entire Indian film industry was shit for three days to enable the odd technicians and workers at units to attend a workshop for skill development.

In fact, skill development is one of the top agendas of the Central Government, too. The Centre is looking at significantly increasing the skilled workforce of the country to help achieve its targets under the ambitious Make in India projects.

In March 2016, MoS Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy revealed over 8 lakh engineering seats lying vacant are being used to teach skill development programmes.
