  1. This indeed is good news. With public private partnership we can expect some outcomes from the effort. Specially when the private sector sees some returns in investing in the workforce.

  2. This would indeed help a lot as infrastructure in some of the ITI's is next to none.This would give a boost to the inmates of the ITI's to look in the eye of corporate world and feel what is happening outisde.
