The Bihar government has decided to open 105 new Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) in the state to enable unemployed youths to get jobs both in public and private sectors. State Labour Department Principal Secretary Vyas Ji said the new ITIs would be set up under Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode. At present, 45 ITIs are running in the state under public sector and around 250 under private sector. The state government has already provided land on block level for setting up new ITIs. A detailed proposal has been sent to the Union Government, Vyas Ji said. “The list of the proposed ITIs to be set up under public sector has already been submitted to the Central government for its approval,” the Principal Secretary said. The Government has also proposed setting up 1805 ‘kaushal vikas kendra’ (skill development centres) with the assistance of the Central Government, he added. A senior official of the Labour Department said there was a great demand of the ITI trained youths in the country.
