Regional Directorates Of Skill Development And Entrepreneurship (RDSDE) Odisha

The Government of India in the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship initiated a step in Dec.’2018 for further improving skill training and apprenticeship training and ensure effective integrated development and monitoring of these programmes at State level. After careful consideration, it has been decided to set up Regional Directorates of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (RDSDEs) for each State / UT. Proposed RDSDEs would subsume the existing activities, personnel, assets and liabilities including lands and buildings of erstwhile Regional Directorates of Apprenticeship Trainings (RDATs) located all over India and hence office of RDATs would cease to exist. However, the existing Central Field Institutes viz; National Skill Training Institutes (NSTIs) / NSTI (W) would be an integrated subordinate formation under respective RDSDEs. Heads of RDSDE would be known as Regional Director. RDSDEs would be Attached Offices of the Ministry.

In connection of above, Regional Directorates of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (RDSDE) Odisha was set up in Jan’2019, headquarter at Bhubaneswar with inclusion of National Skill Training Institute Bhubaneswar under its jurisdiction.
