Industry & Commerce and Technical Education & Industrial Training Minister Anil Joshi on Thursday said "the state government is soon planning to take some immediate steps to provide better facilities to industries in the state. The new industrial policy in 2013 is coming very soon".
"The policy is being designed keeping in view that Punjab has to be brought to the top position in India in industrial development," Joshi said during the state-level job fair at Satguru Ram Government Polytechnic College.
He added that in Punjab four new skill development centres for providing technical education to the youth will be set up in Bathinda, Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur and Amritsar. "Each centre is being set up at a cost of Rs 60 crore and every year around 4 lakh students will graduate from the centres and get placed," he added.
Joshi told mediapersons that ''all the polytechnic colleges of Punjab will be soon equipped with CCTV cameras to check the attendance of the employees".
The fair was aimed at providing jobs to young diploma holders in technical education which, Joshi said, was the first of its kind state-level job fair for diploma holders.
