Summary

Approximately 70 percent of India's 1963 population of 460,000,000 engage in agricultural pursuits and cottage industries. Some progress has been made in developing industry. The Indian Constitution provides for universal, free, and compulsory education through 14 years of age, but full application has been hindered by inadequate facilities, attendance enforcement difficulties, and teaching standards. Secondary education is of four main types. Technical education is a state responsibility, with coordination of standards and supplemental support from the central government. Trade training for adults is provided in industrial training institutes administered by the Ministry of Labor and Employment. Institutional programs include degree courses in universities, certificate and diploma courses at the polytechnics, trade courses in the industrial training institutes, basic training courses in junior technical schools, and special trade training in schools of industry. Technical teacher education is conducted in seven central training institutes. National apprenticeship training for 23 trades has been organized since 1961. In 1965 there were 15,000 apprentices. Industry inservice training is conducted for skilled workers, supervisors, and operatives. A staff training institute for college and institution administrators and industrial education and training officers is planned. (JM)
