About SRTRI Courses Admissions Faculty Facilities Contact

One of the important determinants for rural empowerment is making various empowerment initiatives accessible to the rural people by several development organizations. Provision of learning environment with required infrastructural facilities at the doorsteps of rural people would motivate rural women, unemployed youth, and others while creating congenial environment for learning and improving their inherent skills for income generation. Realizing this gap in capacity building process of rural people, the Swamy Ramananda Tirtha Rural Institute has ventured into creation of Rural Extension Centres at various rural centres.

  • On request from Mandal Parishad Development Officer or Public Representatives or NGOs, a Rural Extension Centre is set up subject to necessary support in terms of infrastructure and learning facilities.

  • The Instructors, Course Material, Tools and Equipment would be supplied by the Institute to the identified Extension Centres.

  • The training procedure, methodology and duration would be as that of Campus training programmes.

  • Selection of trade would be based on local sustenance and feasibility conditions. Thus, the training programmes are of local market driven.

  • The basic training areas of extension include Garment related technologies, Surface ornamentation trades, Quilts and other Utility Items, Rural Engineering, and Electrical and Electronics, etc.

  • So far, the Institute has set up 60 Rural Extension Centres across Nalgonda, Medak, Mahaboobnagar, Ranga Reddy, Ananthapur, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, West Godavari, Krishna, Srikakulam, Khammam, Nellore and Warangal districts.

  • Similarly under Rural Extension, the Institute has trained 40,000 rural people so far.

  • It is highly heartening to note that majority of the trainees have been successful either as employed or self-employed fulfilling the demands of local markets and after stretching their marketing net-work at international level.
