Bhubaneswar: The union minister for petroleum and steel, Dharmendra Pradhan, has urged the union MSME minister Nitin Gadkari to set up an Central Tool Room & Traing Centre (CTTC) at Angul.

The Bhubaneswar CTTC, one of the 10 such Centres in the country, has its extention Centres at Jajpur and Raygada in the State. The Tool Rooms and Tool Design Institutes(TRs/ TDIs) are playing an instrumental role in supporting the development of small scale industries and up skilling technical manpower and creation of employment prospects in these regions.

” I propose to set up another extention Centre of Bhubaneswar CTTC at Angul which is a major industrial hub in Odisha,” Pradhan has stated in his letter.
