Details of its Promoters including their background
In 1971, on account of the complexity of works, the Technical Section of Panjim was shifted to Fatorda. This shift also marked the Silver Jubilee of the arrival of the Salesian in Goa. Fr. Henry Torra, a Spaniard, was entrusted with the supervision of the construction of buildings and starting of the project. The purpose of the Don Bosco Technical School was to train the boys who were unable to complete their education. The Institute commenced its activities on July 16, 1973, offering non formal training in the trades of the Fitter, Machinist, Welder, Electrician and Motor Mechanic. It received a very encouraging response and the needs kept growing, such that in August 1983, the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT), Government of India recognized it as an Industrial Training Institute (ITI).
