    2. Polytechnics have qualified and trained faculty who can scientifically formulate, implement and monitor community oriented programmes and projects especially where the activity of adoption of appropriate technology is involved.
    3. Polytechnics have technicians craftsmen whose services can be utilized to some extent for imparting skill training and adoption of appropriate technology.
