Technical education is considered as the backbone for the development of a country in the modern era. Technical education was almost negligible not only in south Kashmir region but in the whole of the Jammu and Kashmir till 1960’s. The foundation stone of technical education (ITI) was laid down in 1970’s at very low pace. But, thing had changed from last two decades and there is at least one ITI in a district, Still this kind of education is out of reach to a very large portion of population because of the scarcity of such institutions. In the present paper, an endeavour attempt has been made to study the overall conditions, growth, progress and development of technical education in South Kashmir region of the valley of Kashmir from 1981-2013. The present paper studies growth of ITI’s along with enrolment. The present study will also enlighten the programmers and policy makers to give due importance for the further development of technical education in Jammu and Kashmir in general and South Kashmir in particular qualitatively as well as quantitatively.
