Anudip began operations in 2006 with three training centers in West Bengal.
Anudip's very first training center was inaugurated on May 8, 2006 at Asha Welfare Society in Namkhana, almost at the rivers' confluence with the Bay of Bengal. Since 2006 the number of our centres has grown quickly and by 2011 stretched up toward, around and beyond the metropolis of Kolkata. Most centers are in rural or semi-urban locations, many exemplifying the glorious Sonar Bangla (golden Bengal) celebrated by India's greatest poets and song-writers. Some of our training centers serve urban slum dwellers and minorities.
Since 2006 Anudip has built up a network of market aligned skill development centers that numbered 152 on March 31, 2014. The centers sprawl around Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Patna, and Siliguri, serving millions of rural poor
who are offered livelihoods in and around the cities. In West Bengal our operations have grown to 75 centers in the districts of North and south 24-Parganas, Howrah, Hooghly, Nadia, and Jalpaiguri districts. Since 2012, Anudip has expanded operations to the state of Jharkhand, serving areas around Jamshedpur and Ranchi, the state of Odisha serving the districts of Khurda, Cuttack, Jajpur, Kendrapara and Bhadrak, and in 2014 entered the state of Bihar serving Patna, Vaishali and Saran districts.
More than 200 DREAM entrepreneur centers now dot the landscape, run by enterprising rural entrepreneurs, a large proportion of whom are women, which showcase the peerless ability of our students. Five iMerit centers in Salt Lake, Baruipur, Metiabruz, Ranchi, and Bhubaneswar are now operated by our sister company, iMerit Technology Services.
