    However, there is a lack of awareness and counseling centers in local areas like the Old City, leading to a high number of vacant seats in government ITIs. For example, the government ITI near the Zoo Park in the Old City has a capacity of 456 seats, with only 226 filled and 230 vacant. This number may increase by 145 after the introduction of the new courses.
