Genesis of Institute Managing Committee:
A Workshop on (Institute- Industry Interface for the years 2000 and beyond) was organized jointly by the DGE&T, Ministry of Labour and Employment Government of India and CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) in New Delhi on 21st January 1998. An important objective of the Workshop was to discuss ways to increase the relevance of training conducted in ITIs. The Workshop was attended by representatives of CII, Industries, DGE&T, State Training Directorates (7 Northern States) and Principals of selected ITIs.
The Workshop recommended several Areas in which the ITIs and Industry should co-operate. To have effective decentralization, autonomy and to make training accountable to users, it was proposed to constitute a high-powered committee for each ITI for carrying out the suggested activities effectively. It was decided to take up one ITI in each State as a pilot project based on the experience from this co-operation, more ITIs could be taken up later on.
Accordingly, it was proposed to constitute a separate Institute Managing Committee (IMC) for each ITI having representative of Government, Industry and others. It was also proposed to constitute a State Steering Committee at the State level which would decide the powers to be developed to the Institute Managing Committees, its functions and monitor and evaluate its performance. To start with ITIs at Ludhiana (Punjab), Gurgaon (Haryana), Solan (Himachal Pradesh, Jammu (J&K) and Chandigarh (UT) were selected as part of this pilot project as suggested by CII.
