COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT THROUGH POLYTECHNICS
The acronym of CDTP means The Community Development through Polytechnic Scheme. This was earlier known as Community Polytechnic Scheme . It was sanctioned to our Institute in the year 1999-2000 by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Govt. of India. It began to function from the year 2000-01. We have one main center at our campus itself and have six extension centers at various places in Somawarpet Taluq. About Six thousand two hundred and fifty four common people have been benefitted by this scheme.
