The initiative by the Indian Plumbing Skills Council (IPSC) to bring over 10,000 plumbers under one roof will provide an excellent opportunity to communicate with all the sub sectors of plumbing industry and inspire them to become a part of Skill India mission envisioned by Hon'ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi.

The 'Plumbing Skill Mahotsav' being organized by Indian Plumbing Skills Council (IPSC) is a good platform for plumbing community to showcase their achievements and initiatives. It would pave the way for the youth towards nurturing their talent in plumbing workforce and turn that into a meaningful source of livelihood.
Dr. Manish Kumar
Managing Director & CEO
Given the growing demands of real estate, infrastructure and with it, the need for highly skilled plumbers, I commend the efforts of Indian Plumbing Skills Council (IPSC) for the efforts they have been making for enhancing the skills of plumbers across the country. I congratulate them for undertaking initiatives such as 'Plumbing Skills Mahotsav' which aims to exhibit the latest of plumbing products and provide networking opportunities to all stakeholders.
At Plumbing Mahotsav, we want to skill the maximum number of people. We applaud IPSC's initiative to provide India with a strong, competitive and skilled workforce for plumbing. ROTHENBERGER is always ready to support IPSC by providing trainings and highly Professional Pipe Tools.
I think IPSC should do such events every year or at least every alternate year. So far the initiatives to skill or educate the plumbers had been very commercial and were done by various manufacturers to promote their own products.

The Plumbing Mahotsav 2019 would be an ideal platform to implement the company's vision and mission of training and be a part of plumbing members across the country. It’s a great opportunity for Watertec to be a part of the plumbing activities in the country, understand the working of the plumbers and contribute to their growth.
