ACSTI - Introduction

The Agricultural Co-operative Staff Training Institute of the Karnataka State Co-operative Apex Bank Limited was established in the year 1985 to impart the requisite knowledge, professional skills and attitude of the personnel working in Apex Bank, District Central Co-operative Banks, Urban Cooperative Banks and Primary Agriculture Co-operative Societies in the State.

We are in the midst of challenges which have not been faced by the Co-operatives hitherto in the wake of economic liberalisation and globalisation. The Co-operatives are required to be professional to remain competitive to effectively cater to the needs of the rural community. It is necessary that the Bank should utilise the available man power effectively to this end.

The Institute is dedicated to improve and utilise the available Man Power at Apex Bank, DCC Banks, Urban Cooperative Banks and Primary Agricultural Co-operative Societies effectively. The Institute is offering all the training programmes at subsidised cost with the assistance of NABARD. Only nominal delegation fee is being collected from the client institutions for all the training programmes conducted by the Institute.
