ICT Skill Development In India

Information and communication technology (ICT) is one area that is technical in nature and requires effective skills to utilise its benefits. In the Indian context, ICT skills have not yet been developed properly. Part of the reason for the same is the academic nature of our educational system. Another reason for the weak ICT skill development is India absence of legal framework for information society in India.

For instance, legal enablement of ICT systems in India is missing. Similarly, there are no laws for providing mandatory e-governance services in India. Till now we do not have any electronic delivery of services framework in India. The problem is that ICT skill development has not been represented properly at the national policy making level.

Even the national e-governance plan of India (NEGP) has failed to make any mark in this regard. This is because skill development in India is not upto the mark in this regard. Areas like cyber law skill development in India, e-courts skill development in India, online skill development in India, technical education and skill development in India, etc are still not explored.

Further, no efforts have been made to ensure techno legal ICT skill development in India. We have a single techno legal ICT skill development institution in India. The same is managed by Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB).

PTLB is providing ICT skill development trainings and courses in India in fields like cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, information warfare and cyber warfare, cyber terrorism prevention, e-courts, online dispute resolution (ODR), police training, lawyers training, judges training, etc.

If you are interested in getting world class techno legal ICT skill development trainings and coaching in India, get yourself enrolled at PTLB.
