It is proposed to undertake construction of the building at a cost of Rs 16.43 crore. The Cabinet has approved a proposal to hand over the building to the Department of Public Works. These works will be started within 3 months. The building will be built in good quality by the Department of Public Works” said DCM Govind Karajol.
“These Karnataka German Technical Training Institutes provide excellent quality training to 4000 applicants a year.
The short-term and long-term training will enable unemployed young women, especially those from all communities, including Scheduled Castes and Tribes, Backward Classes candidates, Minorities and Women, to pursue their lives independently. Young people must embrace technology and adapt to today’s technological age. There are ample opportunities for specialist candidates to become self-sufficient. In addition, the center will provide high quality training. This should be put to good use,” he said.
