Following is a report from expressbuzz.com:

BHUBANESWAR: Anticipating huge demand for skilled manpower in view of the rapid industrialisation underway, the Government today decided to open industrial training institutes (ITIs) in all the blocks of the State by 2012.

A high-level meeting chaired by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik also decided to introduce a special stipendiary scheme to encourage Bonda youths to join industrial training programmes. The decision was taken after the meeting was informed that tribal students of Malkangiri district are showing interest in such training and their enrolment in the Government ITI, opened in the district last year, is increasing.

It was also decided to increase the monthly stipend of poor and meritorious students from Rs 50 to Rs 500 and fill up all the vacant teacher posts on contractual basis.  

A technician entrance test (TET) will be introduced for selection of students for the Government ITIs. Two newly opened Government ITIs at Rayagada and Sonepur have started functioning from the current academic year while the Plumber Training Institute operating at Cuttack will be shifted to its new campus at Pattamundai, the meeting was told.  

The Ministry of Labour and Employment has sanctioned 91 new ITIs under public private partnership (PPP) mode, the State Government has sought Rs 828 crore from the Centre for establishment of 186 new ITIs in the extremist-affected areas.  

While private promoters will take the lead role for establishing the training institutes under the PPP mode, the State Government will provide land free of cost. Other infrastructure facilities like road connectivity, supply of water and electricity will be the responsibility of the Centre.  

However, the Central support will be through viability gap funding. So far, 27 industries had shown interest to set up ITIs in the State and memoranda of understanding (MoU) will be signed with 10 industries, including the State-owned Orissa Mining Corporation (OMC).  

Global steel major Arcellor Mittal has also proposed to set up a centre of excellence in Keonjhar district where the company planned to establish a 12-million t o n n e g r e e n f i e l d s t e e l project.  

The Chief Minister directed to conduct credit rating of all the ITIs by an independent agency to ensure quality training. He also emphasised on introduction of new trades having demand in the market.  

Chief Secretary TK Mishra, Agriculture Production Commissioner RN Senapati, Industries Secretary Sourav Garg and other senior officers of the Industries Department were present.
