This event coincides with the Golden Jubilee AWWA celebration.

With the inauguration of the ASTC, the Indian Army now embarks on a new mission by bringing the army spouses and wards into the folds of the skilling landscape. The pilot project to skill the Indian Army spouses and wards with linkages to NSDC will make all those undergoing training eligible for being sponsored under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna scheme.

In the initial phase, courses in Information Technology – IT Enabled Services, Beauty & Wellness, Apparel and Handicraft sectors will be conducted by an NSDC affiliated Training Partner. Trainees on successful completion of their respective course will get NSDC certification and the training partner will make due endeavours to ensure that they are suitably placed in various organisations for employment or assisted towards self employment. This institution will set the foundation for such centres to be opened across the country under the regional commands by way of up-gradation of select existing Vocational Training Centres.
