Introduction

About ACSTI

The Tamil Nadu State Apex Coop. Bank Ltd., has sponsored the Agricultural Coop. Staff Training Institute (ACSTI) primarily for imparting training to the personnel working in primary agricultural coop. Societies (PACS) in Tamil Nadu. The National Coop. Development Corporation (NCDC), as part of its overall objective of integrated development of cooperatives, had extended financial assistance under World Bank project III for acquiring land and building to establish the training Institute. The ACSTI was established on 15.11.1989 at Adyar in a rented building and it had started extending training facilities to the personnel working in PACS. With the NCDC grant of Rs.1.10 Cr. extended for infrastructural development, Apex Bank – The Tamil Nadu State Apex Co-op Bank Ltd., (TNSC Bank) – from its General funds had spent its share of Rs.1.35 crores and constructed the Training Institute at a total cost of Rs.2.35 crores at Madhavarm Milk Colony in 4.83 acres of land. ACSTI moved to its own premises on 18.11.1992 with all infrastructural facilities and became a full–fledged training center. Although ACSTI had been started with the objective of training the personnel of PACS, the Institute in due course broadened its objectives and started imparting training to the personnel working in co-op. Banks, viz., PACS, CUBs, CCBs, and SCBs. The Institute has conducted 2182 Programs benefiting 63053 Personnel from SCBs, CCBs, CUBs, and PACS as on 31.03.2015. As a part of its institutional development program, NABARD has been providing financial and technical assistance to ACSTI. Active participation from NABARD in matters of training in the form of financial assistance and technical support has enabled ACSTI’s effective functioning.
