India has over 15,000 Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) of which 85% are run by the private sector and 15% are government-funded. As per skill gap reports it is estimated that from 2013-22 there will be an incremental demand of 10 crore skilled workers i.e. an average of one crore skilled workers every year. All ITIs put together have only 25 lakh seats per annum. While capacity is a constraint, industries which employ ITI pass outs do not find the quality of training imparted to the students up to their standards.
To bridge this disconnect between ITI trainees’ learning outcomes and the industry requirements and making the labour workforce market relevant, equitable, efficient with high quality, the Govt of India has formulated a National skill Development Policy 2009 and under this policy the industries have been assigned the role and responsibility of owing, supporting and facilitating skill development initiatives. Accordingly BIET/BPITI which has been established under aegis of BSL-CSR in year 2010 to take care of IR issues and generates employment avenues for local unemployed youth, has enter into agreement with BSL-HRD for providing on-job plant training for period of 02-03 month to all trainees admitted at BPITI in year 2011.

Under the CTS scheme, the courses are conducted to meet the skilled workforce requirements of Industry so that after completion of training, the trainee who are awarded National Trade Certificate (NTC) under the scheme have an edge over regular ITI pass outs in terms of employability and employment opportunities in Industry. With the vision of strengthening Industry linkages and acquainting students in ITIs with latest technologies used in the Industry, DGT encourages ITIs to participate in the CTS on-job training program so that these ITI trainees are Industry ready.
