Finolex Industries Ltd, a Pune-based supplier of PVC pipes and fittings, organised 60 plumber meets across India on the occasion of World Plumbing Day.

About 3,000 plumbers participated in the event conducted in 26 states and 58 cities across the country on Friday.

In order to support the plumbing community, Finolex said it will continue to organise such events.

The company in collaboration with Kushal CREDAI Pune Metro also launched a plumbing trade video that will teach construction workers and unskilled plumbers the basics of plumbing and provide information on safety, sewerage systems, drainage systems and septic pipes.

The Finolex Industries–Kushal Skill development programme aims to train almost 100,000 plumbers in the next five to seven years.

The first phase of the training programme will include 500 plumbers who will be taught the basics of plumbing and the practical experience they can garner on construction sites.

Executive Chairman Prakash Chhabria said the Skill India initiative is a movement and not just a programme.

"We need people who believe in working hard and adding value in whatever they do," he said.
