MINISTRY OF STATE FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT
(SHRI KODIKUNNIL SURESH)
(a) to (d) Students who are admitted in National Council For Vocational Training (NCVT) affiliated Trades/Units, complete their training and after passing All India Trade Test are issued provisional certificates by State Directors immediately after declaration of result. National Trade Certificates are issued to such students upon receipt of request from the State Directors. The delay takes place primarily because the State Governments do not send the details of trainees on time for issue of regular certificates.
To make the process faster, for issuing of certificates, States have been requested to forward the details of students, passing the examination immediately after declaration of results. Certificates are being printed by NCVT directly in the name of trainees and being forwarded to State Directors for issue.
