Vivekananda Centre for SKILLS (VCS)



Vivekananda Centre for Skills has been established in four regions: at Patharpratima of South 24 Parganas, Amdanga of North 24 Parganas, Borobainan of Burdwan and Jiaganj of Murshidabad district. A training hall, well equipped with audio visual system, has been developed in each centre. The farmers take training on different aspects of agricultural practices on payment of a reasonable fee. Total 60 skills have been identified for farmers’ training. Farmers also get escort services at these centers. Training of farmers on different agricultural skills has increased the acceptability of different bio-products to the farmers. A number of Krishi Sampad Karmis (KSKs) are working under each VCS to provide the services as and when necessary. KSKs are working for providing service of soil testing and fertilizer recommendation at the door step of the farmers. They are working under the umbrella of VCS or independently in those regions where there are no VCS.
