Building on India's vast and rich network of governance- and development-related expertise available in higher educational institutions and
training facilities, EC offers nearly 10,000 fully-funded in-person training opportunities through nearly 400 courses
offered at 100+ eminent institutes in India each year.
Since 2014, India has offered close to 100,000 world-class capacity building trainings and scholarships at premier institutions in India, along
with a chance to experience the culture and hospitality of India. Even during the disruptions occasioned by the covid pandemic, the ITEC programme
continued with its commitment to share India's development experience with the world, providing online healthcare and governance related trainings
to nearly 10,000 professionals through digital platforms.
Apart from our regular calendar-based training programmes, India also responds to country-specific requests for training in specific areas of
governance by organizing customised training programmes which are designed and delivered by the leading institutions in India.
Today, ITEC utilises a bouquet of varied modalities to meet its mandate of capacity building. Even as we have re-commenced in-person (or on-campus)
courses, we have also introduced modalities like   eITEC (for online trainings using digital delivery platforms),
ITEC-Executive (short-term policy-focussed, in-person trainings for senior government executives),
ITEC-Onsite and  ITEC-Expert (onsite capacity building assignments carried out
by Indian experts).
ITEC is administered by the Development Partnership Administration-II Division of the Ministry of External Affairs.
