The National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) marked Women’s Equality Day by announcing the recruitment of an all-female engineering executive trainees (EETs) batch.
The aim was to “reaffirm its stand on diversity and inclusion,” stated NTPC, India’s largest integrated energy company.
“NTPC received an overwhelming response of the recruitment advertisement, which was published in April 2021. The engineering graduates were selected in the Electrical, Mechanical, Electronics and Instrumentation disciplines,” NTPC informed.
Of the 50 offers sent, 30 trainees have joined the company. The special EET batch is undergoing a customised induction-cum-training programme at NTPC’s Regional Learning Institutes.
