The short term Certificate Programmes under Center for Skill Development and Information Education (CSDIE) introduced by Chhattisgarh Swami Vivekananda Technical University (CSVTU) in its old building at Sector-8 in Bhilai proved to be a failure.

CSVTU under its short term course started Tally with GST and invited applications from aspirants, but in the 30 seats course only 4 people applied till August 31 the last date for application. The classes were to commence from Tuesday but it could not be as the minimum number of students to begin the classes were less in number. Similarly in AUTO CAD course no applications were received.

CSVTU expected large number of aspirants to join the newly introduced courses with enthusiasm but all the expectations proved to be futile as the university is yet to receive the required number of aspirtans to being the classes.

Here it needs a mention that the Certificate Programme under CSDIE was launched in June 30 by CSVTU with much hype at Old Building premises of the University at Sector-8 Bhilai and was inaugurated by Minister for Higher Education, Prem Prakash Pandey in the presence of Vice Chanclleor, Dr MK Verma and others.

The courses were to commence from July 16 but the date was extended till August 31 and the classes were to commence from September 3 even after this there were no takers. The university decided the syllabus and fees for the certificate programmes and also did not confined it to the degree holder students only but was for a 8th pass to PHD degree holder too.

The fees for the courses were fixed between Rs 4,000 to Rs 7,500, which is more than the private institutes.
Registrar, DN Sirsant informed that few students have taken admission in, but inquiries are coming and we are hoping that it could be started in near future. We are also thinking of extending the dates for admission for which notifications will be issued in near future.
