ITEC Programme

The Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation Programme,  ITEC  for short, is the leading capacity building platform of the Ministry Of External Affairs, Government of India.  Instituted in 1964, ITEC is one of the oldest institutionalized arrangements for international capacity building having trained more than 200,000 officials from 160+ countries in both the civilian and in the defense sector.

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 customized training programmes which are designed and delivered by the leading institutions in India.

Today, ITEC utilizes 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.
