ABOUT GOVERNMENT POLYTECHNIC, YADAGIRIGUTTA
The Department of Technical Education in 2006 observed that the intake ratio of Diploma to Degree in Engineering is 1:6 which is contrary to the required ratio of 4:1 and hence is a cause of concern to the industries in getting qualified Technicians for employment. The lack of technical manpower is affecting their productivity.To augment the supply of more number of qualified Technicians to industries and with a view to provide opportinities to rural people to study Diploma courses, the Government have decided to establish more number of Government Polytechnics in rural areas with courses which are in demand and issued GO Ms. No. 219 Higher Education (TE-I) Department Dated 15-9-2008 according Administrative Sanction to start the Government Polytechnic at Yadagirigutta, Nalgonda (District) from the academic year 2008-09 along with 6 other Government Polytechnics.
