It added that students will be trained on modern equipment which has already been procured.

This will not be NLC’s first ATIN with the logistics cell operating similar institutes in Mandra, Dina, Amangarh and Khairpur which have contributed to the skill development of local youth, particularly those belonging to less developed areas of the country.

These institutes will be affiliated with National Training Bureau and National Vocational and Technical Training Commission where more than 50,000 students have been trained.
