Now, ITI students can study in Punjabi medium also

Chandigarh, April 27: Students pursuing vocational education at the industrial training institutes (ITIs) in the state will now be able to study and take exams in Punjabi medium.
It will benefit hundreds of Class X passouts in Punjab who want to pursue vocational education in Punjabi medium in the state ITIs. At present, the students in Punjab have the option of attempting question papers in English and Hindi.

Manjeet Singh, senior vice-president of Punjab Unaided Technical Institutions Association, said the government should equip the students with better employability.

An official associated with the training of students said though imparting education in Punjabi medium was not a bad idea, but the government should ensure timely availability of books and effort should be made to have trained instructors who understood needs of the industry.

Over 50,000 students appear for the ITI exams conducted by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCTV).
