The students studying in the Industrial Training Institutes (IITs) might get certificates equivalent to the certificates of boards like Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE).
The proposal was first mooted by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. The HRD ministry accepted the proposal for a separate board for the students of ITIs.
Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Union Skill Development, and Entrepreneurship Minister said that the ministry has been working on the establishment of a national board so that the exams are conducted on the same pattern – 30 percent elective subjects and 70 percent practical subjects. He added that the Ministry has given a new structure to the infrastructure and the syllabus of the ITIs.
He pointed that the survey by the National Sample Survey Organization which stated that there is about 2.5 percent skilled workforce in India is not true as several areas were not considered while reaching the outcome. He also added that the government is providing skill-based training and creating employment opportunities for people.
He said that these skills must be taught to students in the school itself. Many people, working abroad, who are not aware of the law and order of the country they are working in, end up getting caught and imprisoned. The government is trying best to provide training to such people. However, meeting the demands of the industry seems a bit difficult with the current training program.
