Craftsman Training Scheme - With a huge population to be cared for, the architects of the national economy saw the solution to the un-employment and the economic under-development of the nation in the quantum development of the industry in the country. In order to raise a healthy Industrial structure it was important to have proper skilled manpower available to the industry.

The Craftsman Training Scheme (CTS) was introduced by the Government of India in 1950 to ensure a steady flow of skilled workers in different trades for the domestic industry, to raise quantitatively and qualitatively the industrial production by systematic training, to reduce unemployment among the educated youth by providing them employable training, to cultivate and nurture a technical/ industrial attitude in the minds of the younger generation. The Scheme, shaping the skilled manpower for the country, was transferred to the State Governments from the year 1956 and the same was introduced in the State in the year 1958 by the establishment of two Industrial Training Institutes (ITI's) at Srinagar and Jammu.

Scenario in J&K State: There has been a steady growth of Craftsman Training facilities in the State ever since the first introduction over four decades back. The growth has been qualitative, as obsolete Trades are being replaced by new, modern and job-oriented Trades. Quantitatively, the number of training centers has been constantly increasing and at present there are 53 Industrial Training Institutes located in all the corners of the State, providing Training facilities in the following Trades of 1 or 2 years duration:

The Craftsmen Training Scheme is conducted by the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) all over the country, through the respective State Councils for Vocational Trainings (SCVT's) in the States.
