Pimpri Chinchwad, September 9, 2020: We have demanded that the Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) be developed as a model for the whole state, stated MLA Anna Bansode in a circular released on the occasion of Teacher’s Day. Bansode had put forth the demand to the State Skill Development Minister Nawab Malik, and has now assured that he will be following up on the same soon.
The MLA paid a visit to the ITI on Teacher’s Day, and took a peek into the number of students, teachers, not-teaching staffers, etc. While 38 teaching posts have been approved for the Institute, 22 of those are vacant. Bansode also spoke with the Principal of the Institute to understand the issues and challenges faced by the ITI.
While speaking during his visit, Bansode mentioned that Pimpri Chinchwad is known to be an industrial town, hence it is important that the local youth get the required industrial training here, which will make them ready for the available employment opportunities.
“We need to divert our youth away from addiction and crime, and therefore there is a need to create employment opportunities for all. We must therefore provide them with the necessary training and jobs, and we will soon try to achieve both,” Bansode added.
