The Coimbatore Tirupur District Micro and Cottage Entrepreneurs' Association has appealed to the State Government to upgrade the facilities at Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs).
Association president S. Ravikumar has said in a release that the micro and cottage industries were hit by labour shortage. The Government should increase the number of students admitted into these institutes. It should also create awareness about ITIs among school dropouts in villages and those who had studied up to Standard VI, VIII or X.
The Government should consider establishing multi-storeyed industrial estates in Coimbatore.
