Vocational Training Centre in Tribal Areas

The Scheme of Vocational Training Centre in Tribal Areas was launched in 1992–93 to develop skills among the ST youth to enable them to gain employment and self-employment opportunities and improving their socio-economic conditions by enhancing their incomes. Under the scheme, the training for trades including modern trades are being provided through ITIs Polytechnics, Computer Training Centres. Besides, training on vocational trades are being provided through institutions/organisation who are running projects affiliated under ‘Modular Employable Skills’ and ‘Craftsmen Training Scheme’. 
The scheme was revised in 1 April 2009 and provides enhanced financial norms and a time schedule for submission of proposals. 
 The scheme makes the organisations responsible for establishing linkages with placement services and arranging easy micro-finance/loans for trained youth through financial institutions, the NSTFDC and banks.
