THE polytechnics and industrial training institutes (ITIs) in Himachal Pradesh are deficient in tools and equipment, raw material for training and staff strength, thereby affecting the quality of training. The objective of strengthening and development of polytechnics have not been fully achieved.

Reducing unemployment among trained youth has not been on target as the percentage of unemployed among ITI certificate-holders and diploma-holders ranges between 19 and 100. On an average 76 per cent of students, who passed out from 16 units during 1996-2000 did not secure jobs.

The percentage of dropout ranged between 5 and 13 in diploma and ITI certificate courses during 1996-2001. The dropout in civil, draftsman, surveyor and secretarial practice in diploma and ITI certificate courses were even higher, mainly due to the personal financial difficulties of trainees, lack of aptitude for technical lines and the trainees either going for higher education or taking up regular employment.

The expenditure on establishment during 1996-2001 ranged between 45 and 74 per cent of the total revenue expenditure and persistently increased since 1996-97, except for 1998-99. The Director of Technical Education drew Rs 4.31 crore in March 1999 and kept the same in banks as bank draft in contravention of financial rules.

As per the training manual, a year’s post-recruitment training in the Central Training Institute (CTI) is prescribed for in-service instructor in addition to those possessing a national trade certificate. However, shortfall in training of instructors in 12 institutes in the Central Training Institute ranged between 84 and 100 per cent during 1996-2001.

The training manual prescribed a standard list of tools and equipment for engineering and non-engineering trades in respective syllabi of trades for reference which were to be the minimum requirement. However, a test-check of 11 ITIs and three polytechnics revealed that as compared to the prescribed norms, 2177 items of tools/equipment in respect of 19 trades valued at Rs 4.16 crore were found deficient as on March, 2001.

The principals of polytechnics stated that the quality of education and training could further improve if these equipments were made available.

The principals of ITIs said that deficiency of tools/equipment had affected the quality of training in ITIs. The Director, however, stated in June, 2001, that information relating to purchase/supplies of different items during the five-year period was not available and had been called from field units.

A test-check of the staff strength sanctioned for six polytechnics, 41 ITIs and office of the Director revealed that against 2149 posts as per the requirement of the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and National Council for Vocational Training (NCTV) norms, 1367 posts were sanctioned.

Of these, 1063 posts had been filled. Thus, a shortfall in sanctioned posts with reference to requirement as per norms ranged between 10 and 52 per cent. Further, out of 1367 posts sanctioned, 304 (seven to 38 per cent in different categories) remained vacant.

The shortfall in inspections to be carried out by inspecting officers of the Directorate of Training during 1996-2001 was 85 per cent.

To modernise, diversify and restructure vocational training system and provide better skills in 15 ITIs, ‘Vocational Training Project’ was approved by the Government of India for Rs 8.31 crore. As against the approved project cost, the Director incurred an expenditure of Rs 7.91 crore as on December, 1998.

This resulted in shortfall of expenditure of Rs 40 lakh. As the shortfall was on account of late completion of civil works, non-procurement of machinery and equipment and non-appointment of staff, the ITIs were deprived of the benefit of funds for infrastructure to the extent of Rs 40 lakh.

In the absence of receipt of jobs from ITIs the machinery and equipment valued at Rs 10.60 lakh remained idle since 1992-93 and expenditure of Rs 11.03 lakh on the pay and allowances of the workshop staff at the ITI, Mandi, had been rendered infructuous.

Machinery and equipment of Rs 74.84 lakh purchased between February 1994 December 1999 for various polytechnics and ITIs had not been installed gainfully utilised due to non-availability of parts.

Multi-Media desktop 15" (112 in number) and 17" (20 in number) were purchased from a firm by the Director at a cost of Rs 85.92 lakh against supply order placed in October, 1999.

The supply of these computers was received by the consignee polytechnics in November-December 1999. A test-check revealed that items valued at Rs 7.43 lakh were deficient in the consignments as intimated to the supplier by the Directorate in February 2000.

As per the training manual, a sub-committee was to be formed in each state for evaluation of training programmes. A test-check revealed that no such sub-committee had been formed as on April, 2001.

The Deputy Director (Training) stated in April 2001 that the sub-committee was to be constituted by the Government of India and that his office was unaware regarding the constitution of such a committee. The reply was not considered tenable as the matter for formation of this sub-committee should have been taken up by the Director with the Government of India.
