Puducherry, 12 September Puducherry administration would set up an Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in cooperative sector, Chief Minister N Rangasamy said today.
The industries in the Union Territory needed trained technically qualified youth and the government has decided to encourage setting up of ITIs in private sector as well as cooperative sector.
A cooperative society-run ITI would come up soon, Rangasamy said while inaugurating a one-day seminar on ‘industrial harmony‘ organised by Department of Labour here.
The territorial administration has been attracting entrepreneurs to establish industries by assuring power supply, good labour management and also better law and order.
There were around 2034 industries with each of them having more than 20 workers and each of the 160 other units with 100 and more workers on their pay rolls.
However, if disputes arose between workers and managements they could be settled through negotiations.
The administration was keen to meet the job requirements of the educated youth, Rangasamy said adding no one has availed the monthly dole scheme for educated unemployed youth. The Labour Department had issued more than 14,000 applications, but not one filled form has been returned.
