Chandigarh, Jan 16 (UNI) The Punjab Government would complete its prestigious Rs 40 crore, Punjab Security Training Institute (PSTI) at Jahan Khelan in Hoshiarpur district within two years.
This institute would impart two month vocational training to unemployed youth of the state to help them getting security related jobs in various private organizations.
A decision to this effect was taken by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal while presiding over a high level meeting here today.
Taking part in the deliberations he asked the Home Department to finalise the modalities to notify the rules for this institute.
While approving the model of the institute, Mr Badal said that Rs 20 crore were being released by the state government to start the construction of the first phase. He also asked the officers to complete the work of structural designing in two weeks and then float tenders.
Underlining the aims and objectives of the institute, Mr Badal said that presently the security agencies working in the field were not providing any specialised training to the youth. This institute would not only impart modern and technical training of security guards but would also impart the supervisory and managerial security training.
It was also informed in the meeting that the 1 st phase of the PSTI would be completed within a year to impart training to 4500 boys and 1500 girls every year in five batches and the number would be doubled after the 2nd phase is completed.
