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 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.
