CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu will become a job-surplus State in the next few years, said Information Technology Minister Poongothai Aladi Aruna on Wednesday.

Delivering the chief guest's address at the ‘Chamber Day' of Madras Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) and flagging off the 175 {+t} {+h} year celebrations, she said: “There have always been complaints that students are not up to the mark. Time has come for the industry to integrate with educational institutions to churn out quality and skilled people. We need inputs from industries to make these students readily employable as industry growth will happen at a faster rate in the State.”

Chennai Post Master General M.S. Ramanujan said India Post would invest Rs.1,000 crore each for the next three years to keep pace with the changing technology.

The Centre had sanctioned the amount. It would be used for setting up Automated Mail Processing Centre (APMC), linking rural post offices, rolling out core banking solution and restructuring small post offices.

Regarding Core Banking Solution (CBS), he said there was a possibility of having a Post Bank five years from now with a mandate to issue micro finance up to Rs.50,000. The post office was operating eight different schemes and the CBS would enable the subscriber to carry out different type of activities such as account transfer, fund transfer and closure of account. To mark the occasion, he released a special postal cover, which was received by Ms. Poongothai Aladi Aruna.

Mike Nithavrianakis, British Deputy High Commissioner in Chennai, said that they had a broad range of solutions to reduce carbon emission and have a clean environment.

K. Saraswathi, MCCI general secretary, said that they were in the process of setting up a centre for excellence for skill training at Oragadam.

T.T. Srinivasaraghavan, MCCI president, said that they had chosen ‘Sustainable Development' as the theme for the current year.
