INTRODUCTION The Polytechnic Education in our State was introduced immediately after independence. To look after the academic activities of polytechnic education, ‘State Council for Engineering & Technical Education’ was set-up as a Government out¿t by an executive order. The Council was a part of the Chief Inspectorate of Technical Education and subsequently of the Directorate of Technical Education. West Bengal State Council of Technical and Vocational Education and Skill Development was formed as a Statutory Body under the West Bengal Act XXVI of 2013. West Bengal State Council of Technical and Vocational Education and Skill Development (Technical Education Division) has various activities for conducting a number of courses at Diploma, Post Diploma, Certi¿cate, Advanced Certi¿cate, Short Term Vocational Training, Commercial Education level besides monitoring and af¿liating the academic institutions conducting these courses and development of curricula for the purpose. The Council also advises Government in respect of Technical Education for the areas mentioned above. Apart from aforesaid activities, the Council also conducts entrance examination and prepares merit lists for admission of students to Diploma Courses in Engineering/Technology/ Architecture/ Pharmacy etc. in the Polytechnics of the State under its af¿liation thourgh Entrance Examinations, e.g. JEXPO, VOCLET etc. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR APPLICANTS a) Citizenship Must be an Indian Citizen. b) Qualiﬁcation Must have passed or appeared the (10+2) Examination of the West Bengal State Council of Technical and Vocational Education and Skill Development (Vocational Educaiton Division) [erstwhile, West Bengal State Council of Vocational Education & Training] or having passed 2 years’ ITI plus Madhyamik or equivalent examination passed.
