The Subsidiary Training Centres are functioning as additional set up of the some Battalions. The Commandant of the Battalion is acting as Principal of the STC who is responsible for the working supervision of the STC. The day to day working is looked after by an Assistant Commandant of Battalion. The STCs have no sanctioned manpower and small team of police personnel from the battalion are detailed for managing the STC. When training courses are run in the STC, trainers for Indoor and Outdoor training are deputed from other units. All these personnel for the purposes of performance/conduct/discipline are under the control of the Principal of the STC so long as they are on deputation there. He is also the disciplinary authority for the trainees in the STC. Principal of the STC is responsible to ensure that the training is carried out in accordance with the prescribed syllabus/curriculum and shall, time to time, report progress of the same to Director SVSPA. Modules like swimming/driving/rock climbing etc., if not available at STC, are arranged at nearby institutes. The examinations for all the trainings conducted at the STCs are arranged by the SVSPA and the results are to be approved by the Board of Control for Training.
