SHG dept to impart beautician training course to girls free of cost

first_imgKolkata: The state Consumer Affairs and Self Help Group (SHG) minister Sadhan Pande said on Tuesday that his department is ready to impart beautician training course to girls at government schools free of cost.Emphasising on the need for girls to be self-reliant, Pande said: “My department has tied up with a leading city-based beautician and has been running a beautician course. A good beautician is very much in demand for bridal make-up and for similar purposes. I would urge schools if they want to provide training in this area, they can come up with a proposal as my department is ready to provide training completely free of cost,” Pande said while addressing a program to mark the closing of 125 years celebration of Adi Mahakali Pathsala.

Hence, schools like Mahakali Pathsala should be a lesson for them,” he added.last_img read more
