Many ITIs got clearance despite poor infrastructure, says report

PUBLISH DATE 8th January 2018

Thousands of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) were given clearances to provide critical training under the Skill India programme despite having inadequate infrastructure and facilities, a parliamentary panel on labour noted in its report.

The panel found a slew of irregularities -- from two ITIs operating from the same address to institutes without finished buildings to deficiencies in machinery and equipment – that were bypassed to allow these institutes to get funds for training.

“The trainees from these institutes with poor level of skills are not as per the industry standards,” the House panel on labour said in its January 4 report, a copy of which was accessed by Hindustan Times.

There are 13,353 ITIs in India -2,152 government and 11,201 private — with a total capacity of training 21.94 lakh students.

The parliamentary panel also pulled up the Quality Council of India (QCI), a non-profit autonomous society set up by the Centre for industrial accreditation. “The QCI has not followed the process in right earnest and these derelictions were found during inspection,” the panel said, taking exception to “serious lapses” committed by the QCI and seeking corrective measures.

“QCI had accredited about

6,729 ITIs. The Committee is concerned to note that, while on one hand during the period 1950-2012,

6624 ITIs were set up, the QCI in four years between 2012 and 2016 accredited 6,729 ITIs. But these could not function in the desired manner,” the panel said. This is not the first time the QCI has been criticised. A study report by the Indian Institute of Public Administration that pointed out the QCI’s alleged was sent last October to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion for “appropriate action” against the body.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Skill India scheme in June 2015 to tap into India’s demographic dividend and combat rising unemployment. Since then, the government has merged the vocational training programmes with schemes such as MGNREGA and the construction of roads and houses. The government has also linked entrepreneurship to the Skill India scheme, named after Sangh ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyay. The skill development ministry informed the parliamentary panel that it was reviewingexisting civil infrastructure norms and affiliation procedures for setting up new ITIs in the future.
