May 2014 (10:30 AM to 12:30 PM) Minutes of the 1
Minutes of the 1st meeting of the Steering Committee for Mentor Councils
Date & Time: 06th May 2014 (10:30 AM to 12:30 PM)
Venue: Main Committee Room, Shram Shakti Bhawan, Rafi Marg, New Delhi-1
Chaired by: Secretary (L&E), Chairperson, Steering Committee for Mentor Councils
Attendees: List annexed
The DG welcomed all members and the meeting commenced with a round of introductions.
Secretary (L&E) gave a brief introduction to the vocational training programs being provided under
the supervision of DGE&T and the events leading to the formation of Core Groups, Mentor Councils
and the Steering Committee. The members were apprised that the DGE&T imparts vocational
training to around 15 lakh students every year through a network of around 10,750 ITIs, both in the
Government and private sector. But ITIs are not considered as the first choice by students due to
outdated curriculum and technology being taught. Secretary (L&E) said that the Ministry has decided
to re-position the entire vocational training activities under the DGE&T.
Secretary (L&E) informed the members that although the wages in India are low, the productivity of
the workers is even lower leading to a competitive disadvantage. The need to improve the quality
and productivity of the ITI pass outs, who are the foundation of the industry, led to a review of the
courses under various DGE&T scheme. All the courses under the various schemes were grouped into
sectors of economic activity. A meeting was then called of all Advanced Training Institutes and
Regional Vocational Training Institutes. Champion Instructors from 11 sectors (where maximum
seating capacity is concentrated presently) were identified and with the support of NIMI, CSTARI and
one coordinator from DGE&T, core groups were formed to review and revise the curriculum in these
sectors. To ensure that the core groups get adequate guidance and support, Mentor Councils with
participation from academia, industry and Champion ITIs were formed. A week-long curriculum
development training program of all core group members and DGE&T coordinators was conducted
at ASCI Hyderabad to ensure standardization and quality review of existing courses. Along with this,
capacity building program in leadership and management skills for ITI principals is being conducted
in institutions like IIM-Lucknow, MDI-Gurgaon, IIFT-Delhi, etc. so that they can be leaders in
development of their institution and an environment to accept and implement change is created.
Over a period of three months, curriculum under 3 schemes, i.e. CTS, CoE and SDIS across 11 sectors
has been reviewed and revised.
To further ensure that the students and graduates of various institutions under the Ministry’s
purview also develop sector-specific expertise in their respective areas of study and realise their
entrepreneurship potential, Ministry has decided to provide them exposure to Incubation Centres in
premier institutes. Few IITs that can provide mentoring, and incubation in their existing Incubation
Centre facilities to aspiring entrepreneurs selected amongst workmen, ITI / CFI graduates, or other
vocational trainees, have been contacted and such facilities are being set up.
The Ministry is also setting up Chairs in premier institutes to support the activities of Mentor
Councils and institutionalize the process of periodic review of curriculum and any other changes as
necessitated from time to time. These Chairs will also help in technology development and
improvement.

Along with revamping of curriculum, the Ministry also plans to improve the image of ITIs. To enable
this, it plans to purchase 11 slots in the prime-time TV program ‘Hunarbaaz-Skilled to win.’ Each of
the 11 Mentor Councils will be given a 1 hour slot wherein they will highlight the courses available in
ITIs, career prospects, etc. for information of prospective students.
The Secretary (L&E) congratulated the Mentor Councils and the DGE&T officers for the efforts put in
by all of them and the impressive results.
