New Delhi, July 27 (IANS) Domestic mobile manufacturing company Lava International has been honoured by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for hiring the maximum number of apprentices from the state.
The company hired 710 apprentices from Uttar Pradesh last year as per the guidelines of Apprenticeship Act, 1961.
