A high-powered committee set up by the Union Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship will upgrade quality of training imparted in Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), syllabus and curriculum in India. The committee which has Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Union Minister of State, as its ex-officio head will submit a report in two months' time.
The committee will look at equipment and modern systems of training that can be imparted at these ITIs.
Rudy said that the ministry has plans to set up training equipment parks where ITIs in the country can have a look at state-of-the-art training equipment. “Most ITIs are not aware of the presence of such equipment that can change the way skills training can be imparted,” he said. Such parks could come up in various parts of the country and be stream-specific such as robotics, automotive and so on.
