(Accredited Centre of BIRD, Lucknow, NABARD)

                Cooperatives are the biggest consortium of manpower. In India , the legal recognition to the role of cooperatives were first recognized by an enactment introduced by way of passage of Cooperative Credit Societies Act, 1904.  The Govt Policy about the Cooperatives became more comprehensive by an amendment in the act in the year 1912. Maclagaon Committee advocated in 1915 There should be one cooperative for every village and every village should be covered by the cooperatives. Thereafter, the cooperatives became a provincial state subject in the year 1919. The cooperatives remained a mass movement and this model will remain in existence till the existence of mankind.

                The importance and sustainability of this model had been further strengthened by the role of network of  training institutions not only in the country but throughout the globe starting from the International Cooperative Alliance at the top and replicating to the level of village level society in every country. On the similar lines almost every cooperative sector in India is covered through the network of training institutes. The Agricultural Development Banks (LDBs) across the country are providing training to its employees through the training centres under the aegis (JLTCs) in the country. These training centres are getting reimbursements from National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) under its SOFTCOB norms (policy).

                The training centre of the bank is the first among the training institutes of the long term credit structure to get accreditation from BIRD, Lucknow (NABARD) under the C-PEC programme launched by NABARD in collaboration with GTZ Germany. All the programme under this accreditation norms are required to be  conducted in a structured manner. The objectives of the. training programmes are enabling and very encouraging for the employees as these are conducted after doing proper TNA Analysis.
