91 ITIs and 415 Skill Development Centres (SDCs) to come up in different places of Orissa in public-private partnership (PPP) mode

Following is a report from http://www.business-standard.com:

The Ministry of Labour and Employment of the Government of India has decided to set up 91 new ITIs (Industrial Training Institutes) and 415 Skill Development Centres (SDCs) in Orissa on the public-private partnership (PPP) mode.

While the Orissa government would provide basic infrastructural support for these ITIs and SDCs including free land with proper power, water and road connectivity, the Centre would provide Viability Gap Funding.

The proposed ITI s would have a strength of 250 trainees per shift running about 10 demand driven trades. An estimated Rs six crore would be spent towards infrastructural development on each of these ITI s.

The proposed SDCs would be smaller centres of vocational training with seating capacity of about 300 persons per shift per annum to meet the skill training needs of the locals.

About Rs 50 lakh would be invested on equipment and machineries for these SDCs.

Expressions of Interest would be invited from the training providers to operationalize these proposed ITI s and SDCs on the PPP mode.

To set up these new ITI s and SDCs, all the collectors of the state have been instructed by the state industries department for allocation of suitable land having proper power, water and communication network.

About 3-5 acres of land need to be identified for the establishment of ITI s at the unrepresented block headquarters while 500 sq m of land is needed for setting up the SDC at the gram panchayat headquarters.

Moreover, the Government of India has decided to upgrade 1396 government ITI s across the country on the PPP mode through an interest free loan of Rs 2.5 crore.

Nine ITI s in the state at Puri, Cuttack, Chhatrapur, Umorkkote, Barbil, Dhenkanal, Barbil, Baripada, Baripada and Malkangiri are covered under this initiative.

Twenty two government run polytechnics will come up various districts of Western Orissa in 2010-11

Following is a report from http://www.business-standard.com:

Twenty two government run polytechnics would come up in as many districts of Orissa in 2010-11.

These polytechnics would come up in those districts which are not yet served by the government polytechnics. The districts include Boudh Gajapati, Nabarangpur, Bolangir, Kalahandi, Koraput, Kandhamal, Mayurbhanj and Balasore to name a few.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development and the Department of Higher Education of the Government of India has sanctioned Rs 12.3 crore for each polytechnic.

The amount for the proposed polytechnics would be released in installments under the Scheme of Submission on Polytechnics under Coordinated Action for Skill Development.

It may be noted that 13 government engineering schools and polytechnics are already functioning in Orissa under the state industries department.

The Orissa government has already agreed in principle for the establishment of these 22 polytechnics. A single patch of land spread over 10 acres has already been identified by the state government in each of the districts.

Out of Rs 12.3 crore sanctioned for each polytechnic, Rs eight crore will be spent on civil works and Rs 4.3 crore will be spent on equipment, machinery, furniture and learning resource material.

With the opening of these 22 polytechnics, every district in the state will have at least government polytechnic providing quality education.

Centrally assisted polytechnics in Deogarh, Boudh, Nuapada, Kalahandi, Sonepur, Sambalpur, and other districts of Odisha

The Centre has sanctioned funds for establishment of Government polytechnics in 14 districts of the State.

Each of the institutes will receive a one time grant of Rs 12.30 crore from the Centre for infrastructure development while the State Government will take care of the recurring expenditure, including staff salary and administrative expenses.

The Government polytechnics will be located in districts having no such institutes. Orissa has 13 technical institutes including three women polytechnics offering diploma courses in various trades. However, these institutes are limited to only nine districts and most of them are located in coastal region.

The new polytechnics will be opened in seven Naxal-affected districts of Malkangiri, Nabarangpur, Gajapati, Sambalpur, Jajpur, Nayagarh and Deogarh. The other districts selected for the Centrally assisted technical institutes are Boudh, Nuapada, Kalahandi, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Puri and Sonepur.Sites for the proposed polytechnics have been selected in respective district headquarters. The Government will provide at least 10 acres of land for each of the polytechnics free of cost.

The new polytechnics will start functioning from the next academic session. The new institutes will use the facility of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) wherever available and subsequently shift to their own campus, Director of Technical Education and Training VVS Yadav told this paper.

Construction of administrative buildings and industrial training sheds of the new polytechnics will be done by Infrastructure Development Corporation of Orissa Limited, Orissa Small Industries Corporation and Public Works Department. The construction contract will be awarded next month, he said.

The Directorate of Technical Education and Training has reportedly submitted a proposal on the number of branches to be opened, intake capacity in each trade and the number of teaching and non-teaching staff to be recruited to the Government for approval.  Senior officers of the Industries Department recently discussed the issue with the Finance

Department as the Government will bear the expenditure towards staff salary.According to a conservative estimate, each polytechnic will have at least 50 staff. The Government will take a decision on recruitment of staff on permanent or contractual basis.

The Government had already submitted a proposal to the Centre for financial assistance for opening Government polytechnics in the remaining seven districts.
