Tata Technologies to help upgrade 71 ITIs in TN

Wednesday, 15 June 2022 | PTI | New Delhi

Tata Technologies on Tuesday said it has collaborated with the Tamil Nadu government to transform 71 government Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) across the state into modern technology centers and training facilities, entailing an investment of around Rs 2,204 crore.

The global engineering and product development digital services firm has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the government of Tamil Nadu for 5 years for the purpose, it said in a statement.

“Along with the technology transformation of the ITIs, Tata Technologies will also be providing industrial support for trainers’ training and ensuring maintenance of the new set-up,” it said.

Post upgradation, these technology centers will not only cater to the advanced skill requirements of students but also act as technology and industrial hubs for MSMEs, the company said, adding the collaboration with the Tamil Nadu government is an extension of its continued efforts to implement projects of high social impact and complement the nation-building efforts of the government.

“This project provides us an excellent opportunity to leverage our manufacturing domain knowledge to upskill and empower the youth of Tamil Nadu,” Tata Technologies Chairman Subramanian Ramadorai said.

The industrial ecosystem and its requirements have changed significantly over the last few years with a digital-first approach. To keep pace with these evolving technological trends and transition towards ‘Industry 4.0’, industries and manufacturers seek a skilled workforce. Through this collaboration, the company will leverage its product engineering expertise and manufacturing domain knowledge to create future-ready courseware and training platform that allows students to develop their skillsets in line with the requirements of Industry 4.0 technologies, Tata Technologies Managing Director and CEO Warren Harris said.
