ITI students to get class 10th and 12th equivalent certificates
Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) has accepted skill development ministry’s proposal of setting up a separate education board for the Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) students.
It will give a certificate which will be equivalent to class X and XII certificated issued by regular boards.
The certificates that are issued to ITI pass-outs will be acknowledged by NCERT, CBSE, AICTE, UGC, AIU and state education boards. These students will get admission to the institutes that are recognised by these boards.
The proposal is likely to benefit over 2 million students graduating from over 13,000 ITIs every year. It will also help students undertaking courses in ITIs to pursue regular courses in other schools and colleges.
Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship said, “With this, a matriculate ITI pass student having spent two years on a course, would not have to pursue 10+2 and will be able to get admission in the college in the first year of graduate programme.
Likewise, an 8th pass ITI student can get admission in 10th class in any of the recognized schools.”
National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) will conduct the academic examination for ITI pass-outs.
