A scheme titled ‘Kaushal Vikas Yojana’ has been formulated for setting up of 1500 new Industrial Training institutes (ITIs) and 5000 Skill Development Centers (SDCs) in PPP mode preferably in un- serviced blocks (where no ITI/ITC exists) including hilly, desert and minority concentration areas of the country. This division of the Government will definitely help in mitigating the regional imbalance in the field of vocational training.
As per existing instructions, there is no restriction in opening of ITIs/ITCs at any location in the country. Location for opening of ITI (Government ITI) is decided by the State Government. However, private entrepreneurs are free to set up ITCs (private) in any part of country and there is no restriction. For affiliation purpose they have to meet requirements of ‘National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT)’ norms.
