These courses are to be offered without any fees from the candidates and there is no restriction of age and qualification. The CDTP Scheme is one of the components of the Ministry's major new initiative, 'Sub-mission on Polytechnics under coordinated action for Skill Development,' which has been formulated as a part of the National Skill Development Mission. Under the CDTP Scheme, the selected Polytechnics will be provided financial assistance by the MHRD, to run short duration non-formal skill development courses. A variety of employment oriented courses are envisaged to be offered under the Scheme depending on local demands and needs. These courses will be offered by the Polytechnics in its premises, as well as its extension centres, to be set up in nearby locations, from where these courses can be offered to the local community.
