Ramakrishna Mission Shilpayatana is a Private Industrial Training Institute with four I.T.I. Trade courses - Electrician, Fitter, Turner and Welder(Gas & Electric) - under Craftsman Training Scheme (C.T.S.) affiliated to National Council for Vocational Training (N.C.V.T), New Delhi. It was established in 1963 as a Government Sponsored Junior Technical School, during the birth centenary celebrations of Swami Vivekananda. Swamiji is the greatest and most remarkable philosopher sage and karma yogi one comes across in Modern India, who sailed to the United States of America in 1893 to find means for the material development of the masses of India. He represented Hinduism at the Chicago Parliament of Religions. This institution has been nurtured with Swami Vivekananda's ideas to help build a bridge for the masses, especially in rural India, to connect to modern industry. Hundreds of youth who would otherwise have had no scope to go in for higher education have been trained by us in skills and are gainfully employed in various well-known industries. It is located in Belur Math, P.O. Belur Math, Dt. Howrah, Pin- 711202, Belur, West Bengal.[1][2]

History[edit]

In the Second Meeting of Ramakrishna Mission Association at Calcutta on 5 May 1897 presided by Swami Vivekananda, the following two were included while stating the objectives of the Mission:[3] i) to train men so as to make them competent to teach such knowledge and sciences as are conductive to the material and spiritual welfare of the masses. ii) to promote and encourage arts and industries.

  • To fulfill Swamiji’s dream Ramakrishna Mission established an Industrial School in the year 1921 at Belur Math.
  • In 1963 Ramakrishna Mission Shilpayatana was established as a Government Sponsored Junior Technical School.
  • In the early 1990s, the Junior Technical School courses were abandoned and four new I.T.I. trade courses - Electrician, Fitter, Turner and Welder(Gas & Electric) - were started under Craftsman Training Scheme (CTS) affiliated to National Council for Vocational Training (N.C.V.T), New Delhi. The institute was recognized as a Government Sponsored Industrial Training Centre.
  • Parallel to these above developments, in the year 1976, H.S. Vocational stream was started under the West Bengal Higher Secondary Council and continued up to 2005. The Government of West Bengal next formed a new Statutory Body called West Bengal State Council of Vocational Education and Training (W.B.S.C.V.E.& T.). Under this council two 10+2 level courses called Higher Secondary (Vocational) course in Engineering and Technology Stream are now conducted in this institute - a) Maintenance and Repair of Electrical Domestic Appliances and b) Computer application and Maintenance. Students undergoing this scheme are eleigible for lateral entry into second year of Diploma Courses.
  • Short term courses (Modular Employability Skills or M.E.S.) were also started under Skill Development Initiative Scheme(SDIS) of D.G.E.&T., Government of India. These courses are of 120 hours or 3 months duration..Two courses are now conducted under this scheme - a) Basic Electrical Training and b) Rewinding of AC/DC Motors.[4]
  • The institute has been granted self-financing status and has now been converted into a Private Industrial Training Institute w.e.f. 1 November 2013 as per D.G.E.&T. norms.
