On 31st May 2021, The Directorate General of Training (DGT) announced results of the All India Trade Test (AITT) held in December 2020, for craftsman Training Scheme (CTS) Academic session 2020-2021.
The Craftsman Training Scheme was introduced by Government of India in 1950. Its objectives were to ensure a steady flow of skilled workers in different trades for the domestic industry.
Its objectives were -
(1) To raise quantitative Industrial production by systematic training.
(2) To reduce unemployment among the educated youth by providing them employable training.
(3) To cultivate and nurture a technical and industrial attitude in the minds of younger generation.
ADVANTAGES of CTS
NVCTMIS portal stands for:
National Council of Training in Vocational Trades.
However, the AITT 2020 Examinations including Computer Based Test (CBT) of the trainees under CTS was supposed to be held in July 2020 but due to COVID-19 of nationwide lockdown and reopening of ITI could only be undertaken in Sept-Oct 2020. In some states, it was further delayed. Thus to complete syllabus training of 1600 hours, session was extended.
DGT has provisional grievances redressal mechanism (NCVT MIS portal) on which the trainees can register grievance related to result and same will be resolved within a stipulated time frame.
Therefore the Craftsmen Training Scheme (CTS) is a need of an hour to spur the flow of skilled workers in all states of India.
