Srinagar: Chief Secretary, Dr Arun Kumar Mehta today urged upon the officers of Skill Development Department (SDD) to create a mechanism of ranking their institutions on the basis of placements made by them in addition to feedback from students about the course content delivery.

Dr Mehta impressed upon the officers to make a comprehensive skill mapping plan at panchayat level in association with all skill imparting institutions. He asked them to rope in the local PRI’s in identifying the skilling needs of an area so that the actual requirements of that area are met.

He advised them to identify the skill gaps and market requirements and aim for filling the same by admitting them in ITIs and Polytechnic Colleges.
