Extension Work

The Institute is undertaking quick follow up actions firstly to help youths covered under skill up gradation programmes in obtaining loan application forms and acquiring various certificates including quotations of assets. Secondly; the Institute is trying to achieve the wider application of prototypes developed by the Institute with the help of grass root level agencies.

It is extremely difficult to motivate rural masses to shift to new technology and new items of production. This is more so in case of traditional rural artisans because of their limited foresight and low level of education. Normally they are found to have been working on the principle of " Seeing in Believing". In the circumstances, it is proposed to organise exhibition, demonstration for bringing awareness and organise sectorial demonstrations based on street approach for convincing beneficiaries groups for establishing efficiency of the prototypes. It is also proposed to undertake extensive follow-up work of the trained beneficiaries to linkup them with the State Government's department/agencies to get financial assistance to start their own units for sustainable employment.
