ITIs deaffiliated for failing quality norms

The government has de-affiliated close to 400 ITIs after quality inspections found the institutes lacking the requisite infrastructure and trainers.

When asked about the move, Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajesh Agarwal replied in the affirmative.

“We get (them) inspected, we see the quality of infrastructure, the trainers that should be there as per the guidelines,” said Agarwal.

He said the skill development ministry has begun monitoring the ITIs with a view to maintaining their quality standards and also introduced voluntary self-grading by the institutes.

“We are trying to see that centres or institutes which are not up to the mark or quality are slowly chucked out of the system,” Agarwal said.
