The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy (MoIT) would be of­fer­ing 3000 ICT in­tern­ships by sum­mer of this year to cre­ate jobs for IT grad­u­ates.

The In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy (IT) grad­u­ates would take Na­tional Test­ing Ser­vice (NTS) test and top 1500 of them would be placed in de­part­ments of non-IT com­pa­nies in first phase. The se­cond phase would also in­volve place­ment of an­other 1500 in­terns. Of­fi­cial sources on Wed­nes­day said PC-1 of CMMI train­ing and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gramme had been ap­proved by Min­istry of Plan­ning un­der which five lo­cal CMMI au­di­tors would be trained and cer­ti­fied. The sources said it would be cost ef­fec­tive to use th­ese lo­cal au­di­tors for CMMI cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in­stead of us­ing for­eign au­di­tors which are very ex­pen­sive.

More­over, the sources said Pak­istan Soft­ware Ex­port Board (PSEB) has launched a new coun­sel­ing cen­ter to guide and men­tor IT star­tups and SMEs as well as IT grad­u­ates and also placed Con­tact in­for­ma­tion for coun­sel­ing cen­ter on PSEB's web­site.

The Board would also pre­pare a sum­mary for tax ex­emp­tion on IT ex­ports be­yond June 2016, to mo­ti­vate IT com­pa­nies to re­mit more of their earn­ings to Pak­istan in­stead of re­lo­cat­ing to an­other coun­try and keep­ing their earn­ings abroad.
