SCHEME OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT THROUGH POLYTECHNICS (CDTP)
Sponsored by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India, New Delhi.
In our polytechnic, Community Polytechnic Scheme (CPS) was started in the year 1979, and later it was re-named as Community Development Through Polytechnic Scheme (CDTPS) in your 2009. From this scheme skill, development training is being provided to the rural areas as well as urban areas students. Maximum numbers of trainees have got placement, self-employment and wages.
Several government and non-government agencies have been engaged in the task of rural development since Independence. A huge investment in terms of men, material and capital has gone into a variety of community development programmes. But it has not been able to make any significant dent on the formidable problems of poverty and unemployment. This state of affairs has been the cause of considerable concern to our planners, techno crafts and administrators at the national level.
Even with huge resources and infrastructure, the government agencies have made little impact in rural development work and the success achieved is not commensurate with the efforts put in. This indicates that there some missings or gaps between the first step of initiating the project and the last step of achieving the results.
Role of polytechnic in rural development:
In this context, it was felt that the involvement of the polytechnic in the rural development would go a long way to supply these missings.
Polytechnics could render vital assistance by proving the missings in the rural development work. This they could do by drawing on their own resources or from the resources available around their institutions. The involvement of polytechnics in the total development efforts in the rural reconstruction appears to be inevitable.
Earlier experience in some places had shown that the polytechnics had a tremendous potential which needs harnessing to bring about socio-economic transformation in our rural areas.
Motives of the scheme of CDTP is presented below:
- To carry out need assessment surveys to assess the technology and training needs.
- To impart Skill Development Training to the intended target groups.
- To disseminate appropriate technologies for productivity enhancement.
- To provide technical and support services to rural masses and slums dwellers
- To create awareness among the target groups about technological advancement and contemporary issues of importance.
Major activities of the scheme of CDTP:
Following are the major activities identified under the Scheme of Community Development Through Polytechnics (CDTP).
- Need assessment surveys
- Skill development training programmes
- Disseminate and application of appropriate technologies
- Technical and support services
- Awareness programmes
In order to deliver the benefits of the scheme at the doorsteps of the rural people living nearer to the polytechnics, each identified polytechnic implementing the Scheme of Community Development Through Polytechnics are establishing 5 to 10 village Extension Centres in the model village so that each center covers at least a cluster of 10-20 villages.
These centers act as an extension arm of the polytechnic and provide skill training, repair and maintenance services and common facility for group enterprises, information sharing and hiring technical facilities of the polytechnics. NGO’s Professional Experts, Village Agencies like Panchayats Samitis, Educational Institutions are also included in the establishment of Extension Centres.
