JAMMU, Feb 27: Lieutenant Governor, Girish Chandra Murmu today stressed on making Technical Education & Skill Development employment oriented by taking several effective measures as per the modern requirements. The Lt Governor was chairing a meeting to review the functioning of Technical Education Department here at the Raj Bhavan. Kewal Kumar Sharma, Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor; BVR Subrahmanyam, Chief Secretary; Bipul Pathak, Principal Secretary to Lieutenant Governor; Navin Kumar Choudhary, Principal Secretary to the Government, Technical Education Department; Director Technical Education, Sajad Hussain Ganai and other senior officers attended the meeting.
The Lt Governor observed that the Technical Education has an essential role to play in providing skill development and employment in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and directed the concerned officers to roll out a clear policy focusing on the employability aspect in Technical Education & Skill Development.
To make the sector more vibrant, the Lt Governor directed for upgradation of training equipments and machinery in ITIs, Polytechnics and Skill Development Institutes as per the modern requirements. He emphasized on imparting skill training across J&K through renewed emphasis on employability of the trained youth.
The Lt Governor called for synchronizing the trades being offered in ITIs and Polytechnics as per requirement of the local industry and modify the course content accordingly, and directed for framing a Committee to look into the modalities in this regard.
He further emphasized on developing forward linkages of the ITIs and other institutes imparting technical courses with Jammu & Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) and local industry for better entrepreneurship avenues for the trained and skilled youth. He asked the department to introduce courses related to Solar and Agro processing industries under the Skill India Programme.
The Lt Governor also stressed on the need to review the admission process in Polytechnics so that more students can be trained under the Government-run Polytechnics.
