Unemployment and poverty are two faces of the same coin. Self-employment is the key for eradicating poverty and un-employment in the society. The available statistics indicate increase in un-employment every year since lakhs of graduates are coming out of colleges. The mind set in this youth is directed towards self-employment rather then wage employment.
Most of the educated unemployed and under employed youth are concentrated in rural area and are forced to take up self-employment by utilizing local available resources. The promotion of micro enterprises with low investment is imminent to generate more employment opportunities in both rural and urban area to improve economic status of the people. Bangalore Urban, Bangalore Rural, Ramanagar and Tumkur Districts are blessed with various resources and infrastructures having proximity with the commercial and industrial cities and provides strategic transport link to various part of the state. These facilities can be best utilized by optimum involvement of human resources their by sustainable development and improvement of economic states of peoples could be possible.
The Institute took birth in the year 1996 at Nelamangala, to benefit accessibility and convenience of un-employed youth and it was shifted to Arashinakunte to its own building as results of generous contribution of funds from Zilla Panchayath, Bangalore Rural, due to efforts of Sri. P.B. Ramamurthy, IAS, Deputy Commissioner, the then Deputy Commissioner during 1996 and also his successors and Sri. K.V. Beliraya, Chief Executive Officer, ZP, Bangalore Rural and his successors enable the Institute in getting funds at a stretch of very short duration. With the grant assistance of Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, the Institute has new building including dormitory, class rooms, workshops, dining hall and office rooms. The building was inaugurated on 19.01.2011.
