An official source from the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has said that once the proposal is formalised, the NCVT (National Council for Vocational Training) will have an authority to conduct examinations and award certificates to those students who pass out from the Industrial Training Institutes. NCERT, AIU, UGC, CBSE, AICTE and other state education board will be informed soon that the class 10 & 12 certificates awarded by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) will be valid for higher education opportunities in all education institutions in India.
Now the move will help more than 2 million students who pursue graduation from more than 13,000 Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) every year. The board will also help the students who pursue regular degree courses from non-ITIs schools or colleges in India.
Minister of Union Skill Development Entrepreneurship says
According to Press Trust of India (PTI) reports, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister of Union Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, has informed the Lok Sabha that the proposal has been accepted and the board will be formed following the lines of the CBSE and the ICSE boards. Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy has also confirmed that the certificates awarded by the board will be equivalent to certificates awarded by the regular school education boards in India in class 10 and class 12. He also admitted that there has been a major decline in the quality of technical education being provided at the various Industrial Training Institutes in India and but he assured that the problem will be resolved soon and the board will ensure that in coming years new ITIs set up in the country will provide quality education as the other central schools like Kendriya Vidyalayas and other training institutes are providing quality education. He also mentioned that over 23 Lakh students used to pass out from ITIs each year but they were not awarded equivalent certificates in class 10 & 12 standard because there was no such provision earlier.
