The DualEducation Centre will be a role model to the rest of the industries, he said and congratulated ALPLA India’s MD Mr Vagish Dixit for such a futuristic initiative.

The Industries Minister reminded the audience how TE Telangana achieved the unique distinction of being the state that offers peace to its industries and entrepreneurs.
