Koshy said this during the visit of president Pranab Mukherjee to the Chhindwara (Madhya Pradesh) centre of ATDC last week. President was given a tour of ‘Mission to Movement’ display by ATDC.

In addition to a tour of ‘Mission to Movement’ display, the president was given first-hand detailed demonstration of each and every work station including the cutting machines, the computerised sewing machines, the pattern making room etc. at the centre. The president also interacted with the SMART Sewing Machine Operator course students under ISDS, MOT and also the new B. Voc courses candidates at the Integrated Campus.
