National Commission on Labour (1967)||
8.8 A programme of the type and magnitude described above involves considerable amount of planning at various stages. Firstly, there has to be a survey of skill requirements. Secondly, the location of training facilities has to be planned, taking into account availability of accommodation, mechanical equipment, electrical installations, craft instructors and the like. Of all these, supply of adequate number of instructors has assumed importance because of shortage of skills in the country. In an expanding industrial complex, employers are willing to attract persons who have the requisite training skills. The scales of pay in Government being what they are, it is difficult for the ITIs to attract the right quality of instructors. Recognising this difficulty, seven Central Training Institutes for instructors have been established by Government at Calcutta, Madras, Kanpur, Hyderabad, Ludhiana, Bombay and New Delhi with a total seating capacity of 2,400.
