BHOPAL: The Narendra Modi government has decided to de-affiliate as many as 35 private industrial training institutes (ITIs) in Madhya Pradesh for not meeting desired quality parameters.
“The MP government sent our ministry a list of 35 private ITIs, which as per the State government’s scrutiny were found to be not up to the desired quality parameters. All these 35 ITIs have been de-affiliated, for the first time ever in the country,” said Union minister of state (independent charge) for skill development and entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy on Thursday.
He added that 23 lakh students are enrolled in 13,000 ITIs across the country and these ITIs are now being strictly monitored by the government to ensure that they meet the desired quality standards.
Rudy, who is in Madhya Pradesh to detail about the achievements of the NDA government on the completion of its three years in office, took part in the inaugural function of the global skill summit here on Thursday.
The list of de-affiliation of trades and units of the 35 ITIs affiliated to the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) includes the ITIs located in 18 districts of Madhya Pradesh. A maximum of 12 such ITIs are located in Gwalior and Bhind districts. “We’ve made a start on the issue from Madhya Pradesh,” said Rudy.
Rudy said the annual national GDP is stable at 7 per cent and it’s expected to touch 10 per cent in the next two years.
