Punjab govt ITIs achieve 100 pc admission
Punjab Industrial Training and Technical Education Minister Anil Joshi today said the state government had achieved a major milestone by filling 100 per cent seats in all the Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) in the state.
This, he said, would boost the professional entrepreneurship in specified fields of industry.
Mr Joshi said in the current academic session all the available 16,684 seats in 111 government ITIs of the state had been filled, whereas 80 per cent seats in 294 ITIs in the private sector had been filled as yet.
He said efforts of the SAD-BJP government to attract new talent in industrial and technical training had been bearing fruit as more and more students were getting attracted towards technical education.
He said the Technical Education Department was making efforts for the placement of more and more students in the industries. To achieve this aim the department is organising job fairs.
Mr Joshi said with the efforts of the government, 799 students belonging to Patiala, Rajpura and Batala ITIs had succeeded in getting jobs in leading auto companies like; Maruti and Tata Motors.
