During a recently held ceremony, the affiliation certificate was handed over by Dr A Sakthivel, Chairman of AMH SSC to Virender Uppal, Chairman, Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) in the presence of various government and ATDC officials.

Recently, ATDC signed a MoU with All India Council of Technical Training (AICTE), to offer B. Voc Programmes in Apparel Manufacturing & Entrepreneurship and Fashion Design & Retailing in an attempt to reduce growing gaps between skilled manpower requirements and availability. (AR)
