Bhubaneswar,Mar 17 : Union Minster for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmanedra Pradhan today requested Union MSME Minister Nitin Gadkari to set up an extension centre of the Central Tool Room and Training Centre (CTTC) at Angul.
Since Angul is a major industrial hub in Odisha, the proposed centre will provide affordable long and short term training programme for the manpower in the region and facilitate design, development, and manufacturing of quality tools and components, Pradhan said in a letter to Gadkari. The centre he further said would also provide project consultancy to many small scale industries operating around Angul region.
The CTTC, Bhubaneswar is among top ten TRs/TDIs in the country with extension centres at Jajpur and Rayagada. The centres have played an important role in supporting the development of small scale industries and upskilling of technical manpower and creation of employment prospects in these regions, the Union Minister said.
