I am very pleased to know that the Haryana State Technical Education Society is publishing brochure for admission in various courses for the academic session 2017-18 in the technical education institutes of the state.
Technical education is playing a vital role in empowering the youth and in the economic development of the nation. It also has a major role in today‟s knowledge-based economy. In view of this, the Government is expanding technical education in a big way in the State. The latest machinery and equipment have been provided to upgrade the existing technical education institutes and new courses have been started as per needs of the industries. New technical institutions are being set up as per requirement. The Government has approved a scheme of Rs. 115 crores for the modernisation of polytechnics. To promote “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” scheme, 25% seats are reserved for girl candidates in all technical institutions of the State. Besides this, no tuition fee is charged from girl students admitted in Government and Government Aided Polytechnics.
Our dream is that our youth should be skilled, self-reliant and that they have the qualities of entrepreneurship and new doors of employment get opened for them in the country and abroad. For this, we have created 'Haryana Skill Development Mission' in Haryana on the pattern of „Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana‟. „Vishwakarma Skill Development University‟ is being set up in Dudhola village of Palwal district.
I call upon the youth of the State who may not get admission in technical education institutions for any reason, to make themselves employable by taking advantage of the skill development schemes. I hope the aspiring candidates interested in getting admission in these institutions will find this brochure useful, which includes relevant information regarding admissions, fee and various promotional schemes of the Government for every academic session. I wish a bright future to all the students.
