At the time of it’s establishment, the Education Department, Govt. of West Bengal, named it as Kalimpong Basic Training School vide Memo No1076-Edn dt Calcutta the 10th March 1950. The intake of the Institute was increased in 1962 from 40 to 120.
Kalimpong Govt. PTTI has to be upgraded as DIET (District Institute of Education & Training). Kalimpong Sub-Division has been declared as fully fledged district. So, there is great scope of up gradation as DIET. Proposal regarding the matter has already been placed to the Education Department, West Bengal Government.
Kalimpong Govt. PTTI has to be upgraded as DIET (District Institute of Education & Training) as it a fulfils almost all conditions for the establishment of DIET. After upgradaton of Kalimpong Sub-Division as district, Kalimpong Govt. PTTI should be upgraded as DIET. Our vision is to impart all sorts of training to the teachers in the district of Kalimpong and so that quality training would produce quality teachers and ultimately produce quality students for the future of India.
