It gives me immense pleasure to note that the Rural Training Centre, Amaravathipudur, Karaikudi, jointly promoted by three Banks viz., NABARD, Indian Overseas Bank and Indian Bank since July 2005, is entering the 16th year of its establishment. Over the years, RTC Karaikudi is rendering yeoman service to rural youth in imparting skill and knowledge and ensuring sustainable livelihoods. The Rural Training Centre has emerged as a vibrant institution in the State of Tamil Nadu and is capable of meeting the requirements of rural youth, by imparting qualitative training and facilitating their settlement.
It is a matter of pride that the Rural Training Centre, Amaravathipudur, Karaikudi, jointly promoted by three Banks viz., NABARD, Indian Overseas Bank and Indian Bank has been a pioneer in the skill development and is entering the 14 th year of its establishment. Over the years, RTC Karaikudi is rendering yeoman service to rural youth in imparting skill and knowledge and ensuring sustainable livelihoods and therefore plays a pivotal role in nation building.
Since its inception in July 2005, RTC has conducted 560 training programs which have benefited 14760 persons as on 31 March 2020.New and Innovative training programs in Jute Product making, Decorative Painter, Assistant Decorative Painter and Protected & Marine painter were introduced in the year 2019-20.Awareness programs like Legal Awareness, Vigilance Awareness, LIC Awareness, Fire Extinguisher Awareness, Parthenium Awareness and EDP classes were organized.
