Quality Council of India to set up chapter in Coimbatore

Staff Reporter

COIMBATORE: Quality Council of India (QCI) will set up a chapter in Coimbatore, according to Girdhar J. Gyani, Secretary General, QCI.

He was here on Wednesday to deliver the valedictory address at the ‘Workshop on Achieving Breakthrough Quality', organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Coimbatore, The Hindu and Indian Statistical Institute to observe the National Statistics Day.

Awareness

The Coimbatore chapter would be one among the 10 the council proposed to set up by December in the country to spread awareness on quality control and statistical tools to improve quality.

The QCI had already established chapters in Mumbai (two), New Delhi, Noida, Bangalore and Indore.

It proposed to set up three more.

It would work with local industry, industry organisations and trade bodies for quality development and use of statistical tools.

The four sectors it would focus on are small and medium enterprises, hospital and other health establishments, government departments and education institutions.

Mr. Gyani said the QCI had identified the four sectors for quality development programmes and would initiate various programmes in the next five years under the new five-year plan.

He also said that the QCI had embarked on a programme to introduce quality development-related subjects in industrial training institutes.

Subsequently, the organisation had developed a framework for schools, which the National Council for Education Research and Training and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghatan had adopted.

He observed that India was not able to improve in quality because industries here had not effectively used statistical tool. Even tools so simple that even home makers could use.

It was the reason for the lack of competitiveness.

He also sought the establishment of more small and medium enterprise clusters for quality improvement.

D. Rajkumar, Regional General Manager, The Hindu, said the newspaper had partnered with the Chamber for branding Coimbatore and the Wednesday's programme was part of that.

A. Rajagopal, Director, ISI, Coimbatore, proposed a vote of thanks.

Mr. Gyani and others later presented awards to participants who had submitted case studies on quality development initiatives in their industries or sectors.
