Scheme for Assistance to Training Institutions

New Delhi: December 10,2012

The central sector “Assistance to Training Institutions” (ATI) Scheme is implemented on all India basis by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME), through its three National level Entrepreneurship Development Institutes (EDIs) viz., National Institute of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (Ni-MSME), Hyderabad, National Institute of Entrepreneurship & Small Business Development (NIESBUD), Noida, Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE), Guwahati and also through National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC) (a Public Sector Undertaking under the Ministry of MSME), Central Tool Rooms (under Office of the Development Commissioner, M/o MSME) and their Franchisees/Partner Institutions. The Ministry has got this Scheme evaluated by an independent agency. The evaluation report has observed that the catalytic role played by the Ministry of MSME in creation of Training Infrastructure and employment generation under the ATI scheme has been highly beneficial & cost effective. The evaluation has further stated that the scheme assumes national importance as it is contributing towards rapid escalation of training and skill development and hence should be extended in the XII Five Year Plan. It has also recommended for marginal increase in the limits of financial assistance for creation/strengthening of infrastructure and per hour per trainee rate for conducting training programmes.

The evaluation was with reference to the performance of the scheme as a whole and hence, there was no specific observation with reference to any particular State. Under the ATI Scheme, 84 programmes were conducted in Maharashtra to train 2270 persons at a cost of Rs.1.98 Crore during 2011-12. During the current year 152 programmes to train 4200 persons at a cost of Rs.4.04 Crore have been allocated. The training programmes covered/cover Amravati, Akola, Ahmednagar, Aurangabad, Buldhana, Bhandara, Beed, Chandrapur, Dhule, Gadchiroli, Kolhapur, Latur, Mumbai City, Mumbai Suburban, Nagpur, Nanded, Nandurbar, Nasik, Osmanabad, Parbhani, Pune, Ratnagiri, Raigad, Sangli, Satara, Solapur, Sindhudurg, Thane and Yavatmal Districts of Maharashtra.

The Ministry has decided to continue the ATI scheme during XII Plan 2012-17 with suitable improvements. This information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Shri K. H. Muniyappa in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
