Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) Programme

Under the ITEC programme, candidates nominated by the Malaysian Government are sent for training courses to various institutions in India, which is fully sponsored by the Government of India. The ITEC sponsored training programmes are mostly short-term (2 to 4 weeks) to medium term (8 to 12 weeks), though a few long term training programmes are also available (6 to 12 months). Under the ITEC programme, the trainees are provided with airfare, tuition fee, accommodation and living allowance by the Government of India. The ITEC programme is administered by the Ministry of External Affairs, India.


The target participants are Malaysian citizens in the age group of 25 to 45 years, and should have the eligibility criteria for the training programme to which they wish to apply.
