There is no proposal under consideration of the Government for opening Computer education centres at tehsil level for providing free computer education to youth. However, Ministry of Labour & Employment has formulated a new scheme titled “KaushalVikasYojana” to set up 1500 new Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) & 5000 Skill Development Centres (SDCs) in un-serviced blocks of the country including Uttarakhand under Public Private Partnership (PPP). Approval process of the scheme is on. These ITIs and SDCs are proposed to conduct demand driven courses including Computer education.
The Union Labour & Employment Minister Shri Mallikarjun Kharge gave this information in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.
