The Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) competition features three stages in which students from grades 7 to 12 can learn about the automobile industry. The Olympiad is held online to allow students from all boards and areas around the country to participate. Registration will be accessible from June 10th through July 31st, 2022, and students will be able to participate through www.asdc.org.in in the Olympiad for free. The first stage results will be announced in October, and the national winners of Olympiad will be recognized by the ASDC in January 2023.
According to CEO, Arindam Lahiri, in the current scenario, the automobile industry standard is rapidly evolving into robotics and electric vehicles, with the electric vehicles industry expected to generate huge employment and the entire automotive industry will become the biggest industry in next five years. ASDC has partnered with National Program on Career Awareness (NPOCA) for its flagship program, the ASDC National Automobile Olympiad. The goal is to organise a campaign to raise awareness among the next generation about the automobile industry’s job choices, future prospects, economic growth, and environmental effect.
The competition will be mostly theoretical in nature, with the goal of clarifying the fundamental concepts of the industry, journey, and the necessity of the automobile sector.
