Students preferring ITI over polytechnic courses

One of the significant agenda of any government is to create jobs and lower the ever-growing unemployment issues. Industrial Training Institute (ITI), the post-secondary schools function as an educator and train the youngsters in several trades. Every year, students make attempts to take education in the ITIs to cash upon the employment opportunities provided by the institute. Due to this, many students choose ITI over the Polytechnic and Diploma courses.

ITI is a two-year course, which the students can pursue after the Standard X examinations (SSC). After the completion of the course, several students get placement in companies and due to which, students avoid the polytechnic, diploma or Standard XII courses (HSC).

During the academic year 2018-19, 1,30,800 seats were available for Polytechnic courses out of which, only 57,997 applications were admitted. Meanwhile, on the other hand, 1,38,317 seats were available for ITI and 3,95,714 students applied for it. Meanwhile, 80,000 students have secured admission in ITI.
