The ITIs are set up and run by the State Governments and Private entities. The role of Central Government is in policy making, setting up of standards & norms, trade testing and certification. However, in a Centrally Sponsored Scheme titled Skill Development in 34districts Affected by Left Wing Extremism (LWE), there is provision to setup 34 ITIs and 68 Skill Development Centers(SDCs) in 34 districts covering 9 states with 75% support from Central Government. State –wise details are in Annex -1. Further, Government has decided to setup 1500 new ITIs & 5000 SDCs in Public Private Partnership mode in the unserviced blocks of the country.
During the last 3 years, 147 new Government ITIs and 2399 new Private ITIs have been established in the country. Government ITIs are funded by State Governments while Private ITIs are funded by Private entities. There was no expenditure on the part of the Central Government.
No ITI has been closed due to low rate of admission of students. However, some units in some ITIs do get deaffiliated from National Council of Vocational Training for want of demand.
This information was given by the Union Labour & Employment Minister Shri Mallikarjun Kharge in reply to a written question in the Lok Sabha today.
