New Delhi:

To make provision for granting of class X and XII certificates, the government on Wednesday proposed to have a separate board of education for over 13,000 Industrial Training Institutes.

Skill Development Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy informed the Lok Sabha during Question Hour that the proposed ITI Board will be on the lines of CBSE and ICSE.

It will give a certificate which will be equivalent to class X and XII certificates issued by regular boards.

The HRD Ministry has agreed to the proposal, he said, adding that the move will help students undertaking courses in ITIs to pursue regular courses in other schools and colleges.

Responding to a supplementary, he said there was no plan to open skill development centres at night shelters.
