ANSWER
(a) to (d) Yes, Madam. Government is aware that there is shortage of adequate trainers to implement skill development programmes across the country;

At present, total seating capacity under different training schemes comes to about 25 lakh(ITIs/ Apprenticeships/ Short-term courses) which requires about 1,25,000 trainers in the country. Presently about 25,000 trained instructors passed out from Central Institutes under Craft Instructor Training Scheme (CITS) are available in the Country.

Further, there are 30 Central Institutes and 16 Institutes for Training of Trainers (Private & State Government) with an annual capacity of about 10,600 seats and catering to the requirement of mostly manufacturing sector. Further, the industry practitioners are also being encouraged to join the training institutes as trainers. At present, my ministry is collaborating with Chambers in Germany to train master trainers in the field of mechatronics and welding.
