NEEPCO to upgrade three ITIs in northeast IndiaSeptember 14th, 2010 - 4:02 pm ICT by IANS
Agartala, Sep 14 (IANS) The North Eastern Electric Power Corp (NEEPCO) will take up three more industrial training institutes (ITIs) under the centre’s “adopt an ITI” scheme to meet the growing demand for skilled manpower in the region, officials said here Tuesday.
The state-owned corporation will adopt one ITI each in Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura.
NEEPCO last year had adopted two ITIs- one at Halflong in southern Assam and another at Dirang valley of West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh.
Under the “adopt an ITI” scheme, a public sector organisation becomes a partner and upgrades an ITI by developing its infrastructure, redesigning the curriculum in consultation with the concerned state government.
“The main objective of the scheme is to meet the demands of skilled manpower in the developmental projects in the northeastern region,” a NEEPCO official told IANS.
