New Delhi: Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, the Minister of State (IC), Labour & Employment said that the Ministry is taking all possible steps to prepare one crore youth for employment by providing vocational training in 12th Five Year Plan. Shri Dattatreya said this here today while formally launching the portal https://ncvtmis.dget.in, a digital platform that will help in improving the market function of vocational training delivery in India. The platform, developed by the Ministry’s Directorate General of Employment & Training(DGE&T), is yet another step to scale up the infrastructure that can help realise Prime Minister’s Skill India mission, as well as significantly improve government’s process efficiencies, increase transparency and reduce leakages and corruption by the use of technology, the Minister added.
The Minister also awarded e-certificates from the first set of e-certificates generated from portal for candidates who had successfully completed trainings from various Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) in the past, but were awaiting certification by the NCVT due to a huge backlog of data transmission from States to DGE&T. About 1.6 lakh pending e-certificates have been generated through the portal for already passed out trainees.The 11 member team that made the portal possible was also given appreciation certificates by the Minister.
Speaking on the occasion Shri Shankar Aggarwal, the Secretary L&E said that the Ministry is trying to strike a balance between labour laws and labour welfare.He said the endeavour is to equip youth for leading dignified life.
Earlier , Shri Alok Jain,DG(DGE&T) welcomed the participants.
This digital initiative will help all stakeholders. The portal will not only drastically reduce waiting time from years to days for apprentice to get certificates; the employers will also be able to cross check genuine candidates directly using the portal. While the Government schemes delivery and performance can be monitored through his portal, the general public can also access details of various institutions in the country, courses offered and their uptake statistics, number of seats available, examination calendars, etc.
In its first phase, the NCVT-MIS portal has provided an e-governance mechanism for key DGE&T schemes such as the Craftsmen Training Scheme (CTS) and Apprentice Protsahan Yojana (APY). The portal provides information to the general public on details of various institutions in the country for Craftsman Trade Scheme, Apprenticeship scheme and Craftsman Instructor training scheme, their affiliation details, number of seats available and their utilization statistics. Details of 11000 + Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) along with their affiliation details are available for search in the public domain. Data of about 10 lakh CTS candidates, who took admission across these ITIs in the country during the session starting August 14, are now available in the portal. The trainees can now print hall ticket, mark sheet and e-certificates from the portal themselves which will eliminate harassment in issuance of these documents and also drastically reduce the turnaround time in availability of these documents.
The employers will also be able to validate these e-certificates directly using the portal. Over 20 lakh certified trainees who were given paper based certificates can also be verified online. Similarly under APY, the portal digitizes the entire business process of the scheme and allows registration for establishments, submission and approval of claims, and payment to establishments and subsequently to apprentices being processed electronically through direct benefit transfer.
A helpdesk has also been provisioned for handholding the ITI during the rollout of the portal across all the institutes along with user manuals, FAQ and training sessions.
The portal is designed to provide visibility into the supply of training, employment, and apprenticeship services of the Ministry, help catalyse the demand for these services through better market information and advocacy, and also provide a self-service internet portal to help different stakeholders conduct several business functions online. With over 11000+ ITI spread across the country with 134 different trades of varying durations and size and 10 lakh students enrolling every year in these ITIs it had become virtually impossible for DGET to ensure policy and affiliation compliance and timely result declaration without a MIS system.
The portal is also expected to improve the governance of vocational training across the field institutions of DGE&T by providing high degree of transparency, better analytics for decision making, and improved access to citizen services.
In its phase II currently under development, the platform will also provide modules for the Centrally funded institutes which conduct instructor training courses , apprenticeship services and to help the States in migrating the admission process for various vocational training courses online, provide a centralized database of instructors in the country for such courses, and also provide an integration with the National Career Service (NCS) portal of the DGE&T to integrate the training services with employment and Aadhaar.
