NCVT full form or meaning is National Council of Vocational Training.
As the name suggests, this council works at the national level.
In simple language, vocational training means training related to day to day business.
The NCVT, established in 1956 by the Government of India, is an advisory body whose job is to ensure that all the ITI institutes across India are following the complete guidelines of Directorate General of Training, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Government of India.
Just like there are AICTE and UGC for an engineering college, which ensures that the college’s curriculum, infrastructure, lab facility, faculty, etc. are running correctly
Similarly, there is a Council of Vocational Training for all ITI institute, which ensures that the facility, workshop, faculty, infrastructure etc. of an ITI college are under the guidelines of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.
Just as NCVT supervises ITI colleges at the national level, there is another Vocational Training Council at the state level also called SCVT.
If the ITI institutes of a state are accredited by the SCVT of that state, then they follow all the rules of that SCVT.
All the rules of NCVT and SCVT are almost the same.
Today, due to NCVT, the level of ITI colleges has gone up to a great extent and students are getting a quality education.
Today more than 15,000 ITI institutes of India come under NCVT.

The ITI college you are studying today is affiliated with NCVT, or SCVT, does not matter
It doesn’t matter on your job chance or on higher education.
Today NCVT and SCVT both have equal value due to the efforts of the government.
