Centralized admission process started for Industrial Training Institutes ( ITI ) in Maharashtra, free counseling in all colleges till July 11

Nashik: The centralized admission process (CAP) for Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) across the state started from June 27 and will be completed by August 31, the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET) announced.

Technical institutes in the state have started providing free counseling for an hour to ITI aspirants. “All technical institutes will provide free counseling to the youths interested in taking industrial training from 10am to 11am daily, even on Sundays, (till) July 11. This will help students from rural areas to get information about our courses,” said D S Jadhav, vice-principal of Government ITI, Nashik. The college provides training in the highest number of trades (31) and has the most seats (2,867) in Nashik.

The ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship (MSDE) has taken a keen interest in developing ITIs across the country. As a result, many institutes have added courses in interesting trades this year. Nashik district has 104 institutes and more than 18,000 seats in 31 courses. ITI is preferred by the students who aspire to get pro- employment education and jobs in industries.

“Realizing that skill development is key to promote employ-ability and economic growth, technical institutes across the state have taken it as a mission to promote vocational trades. Each tehsil place and many rural and tribal-dominated remote areas also have technical training institutes, which could benefit a lot of rural students. Our major focus is on rural students,” Jadhav added. A

s per the schedule, the first list of the ITI admissions will be out on July 14 and the admission process will conclude by August 31. Training, however, will start from August 1 in most of the colleges. If the institutes in rural/tribal areas fail to get the minimum number of admissions, candidates will be shifted to nearby institutions to avoid inconvenience.
