Our Heritage

Established on May 16, 1920, The George Telegraph Training Institute (GTTI) emerged as a beacon of vocational education amidst India's escalating unemployment challenge. As a registered trust, George Telegraph has been at the vanguard of human resource development tailored to the evolving needs of the Indian industry, marking its legacy as an educational pioneer in India.

In the post-World War I era, India's economy was navigating a critical transition from agriculture to industry, leading to rapid urbanization and an educated youth demographic with heightened job expectations. However, the prevailing education system was not aligned with the burgeoning industrial demands, resulting in a significant employment gap.

Recognizing the urgency of this issue, Late. Haripada Dutta, a visionary with profound commercial insight, founded George Telegraph to bridge the gap between education and industrial requirements. George Telegraph initially focused on commercial trades training, specifically in shorthand and typing, areas that were inadequate for the industrial revolution unfolding in India.

Under Late. Dutta's leadership, George Telegraph expanded its curriculum to include training in fly signature, an emerging and sought-after mode of communication in the Indian sub-continent. The institute offered pioneering courses such as:

  • - Signalling Railway Coaching
  • - Guard
  • - Assistant Station Master's Diploma

Late Dutta then introduced wireless Telegraphy where through Morse coding students were prepared for examination of COPC Certificate of Proficiency and ROGC (Radio Officer General Certificate) under the Ministry of Communication Govt. of India. The main training Campus at Sealdah was one of the examination Centres in India. Students who qualified, got jobs in Merchant Navy as International Radio Officers for ROGC, and those with Cop got jobs in ONGC, Police Forces, etc.

George Telegraph quickly earned recognition as a centre of excellence by esteemed entities including the British Army, the British Railway Board, Ministry of Communications-Government of India, Department of Labour-Government of India, Railway Board, New Delhi, Maritime Authorities, and various Chambers of Commerce.

Today, George Telegraph has broadened its educational spectrum to encompass a wide array of training programs in Electronics Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Beauty And Wellness, Paramedical, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Commercial Practice, Communicative Studies, and Computer Software. With over 80 centers across India, George Telegraph continues to lead in equipping the youth with the skills necessary for thriving in the modern industrial landscape.
