Very close relation develops between the trainees and the institute which makes regular follow-up programme much easier. Ex-trainees maintain close contact with the institute and all possible post-training support services are provided to them. They visit the institute as and when required and consult with specialists of different subjects regarding various problems encountered by them in implementing their entrepreneurship ventures. Reciprocally resource persons pay occasional visits to the respective villages. Necessary arrangements for financial assistance by way of self-employment loan and linkage with bank credit facilities have been made for the ex-trainees for undertaking different self-employment enterprises.
SELF-EMPLOYMENT FUND LOAN:
Rs.9,51,700.00 (Rupees nine lakhs thirty one thousand seven hundred) only has been disbursed to 90 ex-trainees against 116 A/cs as loan from self-employment fund since the creation of the fund, 92 A/cs were closed and recovery percentage stood at 83.85% as on 31.03.2014.
LINKAGE TO BANK CREDIT:
Credit linkage of trainees with bank is an important development from the year 2009-10 onwards. As on 30.06.2015 linkage of trainees with bank credit – mainly United Bank of India, is appended below:
|Sr. No.||No. of Proposals||REDP||SDI||Total|

In this regard necessary steps are taken to motivate the trainees to venture entrepreneurship on demand – driven location-specific trades according to their temperamental attitudes. The trainees applying for bank loans are meticulously guided by the institute’s faculty for preparation of their selected project for loan.
