Department of Training and Technical Education. Development and Modernisation of Infrastructural Facilities in Technical Institutes.
With the increasing number of students, Institutes were suffering from a shortage of infrastructural facilities viz. classrooms, hostels, laboratories, etc. However, projects intended to cater to the increased requirement could not be progressed in a timely manner leading to both denials of benefits to the students as well as cost escalations. The project of World Class Skill Centre was lagging behind the schedule while Delhi Technological University (DTU) failed to commence construction of much needed infrastructural facilities and implement the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme. Inordinate delay in execution of the project of installation of lifts in Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT) and construction of PG Block of Delhi Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research (DIPSAR) resulted in cost overrun of Rs. 22.29 crore.
