The initiative consists of putting in continuous efforts for up gradation of these ITI's in to "Centre of Excellence" under the PPP (Public Private Partnership) mode for which IMC's have been formed as envisaged under the scheme with active involvement of the Company personnel in the functioning of these ITI's. The Company has nominated its Senior executives as Chairman and Trustees of these IMC's.
