CCRT Regional Centres
Hyderabad, Udaipur, Guwahati and Damoh


The Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) is one of the premier institutions in the country working in the field of Linking Education with Culture. The CCRT has been entrusted with the task of Propagation of Culture among College and School students and teachers and Interlinking Culture with Education. The CCRT uses various means in creating an understanding and awareness among students about the plurality of the regional cultures of India and integrating the knowledge with education.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resource Development had reviewed the work of CCRT in 1994 and had recommended that the activities of CCRT should be spread at grassroot level by opening Regional Centres in different parts of the country. The Planning Commission had accorded its approval for setting up of three Regional Centres. Two Regional Centres at Udaipur & Hyderabad had already become functional after the approval accorded by the Standing Finance Committee on Human Resource Development. The Standing Finance Committee had then also recommended to open a Regional Centre in the North-East, which the CCRT has brought into function at Guwahati from the year 2008 with a skelton staff.
