Dutta told reporters that although many private companies are willing to adopt the ITIs, there are two problems. “The first is that many ITIs do not have the requisite infrastructure. A private company recently adopted an ITI in South 24-Parganas’ Amtala. But now it is facing a problem since the institute does not even have a power connection,” Dutta said. He also said that the government should develop the infrastructure of these ITIs before offering them to private companies. Also, it should give the companies a chance to run the institutes with a free hand so far as fixing the curriculum and fee structure is concerned.
