The Directorate General of Training (DGT), under the aegis of Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), announced results of the All India Trade Test (AITT) held in December 2020, for Craftsmen Training Scheme (CTS) Academic session 2020-2021.
The scheme has been implemented in about 15,000 Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) across the country for the 2018 session (2nd year) and Trainees having supplementary in Practical and ED only (Semester System and 2018 admitted 1 Year Trade).

The AITT 2020 Examinations including Computer Based Test (CBT) of the trainees under CTS was supposed to be held in July 2020 but due to COVID 19, nation wise lockdown and reopening of ITI could only be undertaken in Sept-Oct, 2020 and in some states, it was further delayed. Thus, to complete syllabus training of 1600 hours, the session was extended. Directorate General of Training (DGT) scheduled and conducted examinations as follows:
- The practical and Engineering Drawing subjects were conducted in 4 phases (viz. Nov-Dec, 2020, Feb 2021, March 2021(for 2-year trade 2019 admission) and April 2021 based upon the readiness of the states). The theoretical portion (Trade Theory, Workshop Science and Calculations and Employability Skills) were held phase-wise (from Dec. 2020 to mid-April, 2021) in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode in a single session of 3 hours’ duration instead of two sessions. These measures were taken to suit the Covid scenario and help the trainees.
- The trainees who could not attend examinations due to some reason in these examinations would be allowed to appear along with the supplementary examinations, preferably to be held in the next two months/ as per prevailing conditions.
- Keeping view of the distances covered by the trainees, the ITIs were made self centres for Practical and Engg Drawing subjects. For CBT, as an aberration, even a few private ITIs were also made centres.
For the two year trades, a total of 5,41,123 trainees appeared in the examination, out of which 3,94,576 trainees passed, indicating a total pass percentage of about 73% in this session. DGT has provisioned Grievances Redressal Mechanism (NCVT MIS Portal) on which the trainees can register grievances related to the result and the same will be resolved within a time frame.
