Central Footwear Training Institute, Agra

Agra has been renowned at the national and international levels as a centre for educational excellence, and industrial developments apart from tourist attraction. The city not only attracts foreign visitors for site-seeing but the industries like Leather, Foundry and Handicrafts also made it very popular across the globe. Although the Footwear manufacturing in this area had started centuries before Indian independence, but the sector was not fully developed, as the basic infrastructure was not available at that time.

Government of India established “Central Footwear Training Centre. Agra” in July 1963, under Small Industries Development Organization, Ministry of Industry with financial assistance from Ford Foundation. The erstwhile Centre was well equipped with latest imported machines. The prime objective of the Centre was to provide young and technically sound personnel to the footwear industry and to upgrade the knowledge and skill of the existing staff. It was the 1st January, 1996, when the Central Footwear Training Centre, Agra was converted into an autonomous body and was renamed as Central Footwear Training Institute, a Govt. of India Society under the Chairmanship of Additional Secretary / Development Commissioner (Small Scale Industries), Small Industries Development Organisation, Ministry of Industry, Government of India (Presently Ministry of MSME, Govt. of India) with an objective of smooth functioning and quicker implementation of managerial decisions.
