Tata Technologies has inked a memorandum of agreement with the Tamil Nadu government to transform 71 government Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) in the state into technology centres, with modern infrastructure and training facilities, to meet industry 4.0 standards in five years.
The proposed investment will be Rs 2,204 crore. Tata Technologies will also provide industrial support for trainers’ training and to ensure maintenance of the new set-up.
Post upgradation, these technology centres will also serve as technology and industrial hubs for MSMEs.
This will also improve the availability of advanced skills required for smart manufacturing across the state and provide the impetus for skills-led manufacturing, thereby, attracting investments into Tamil Nadu.
