On August 24, 2016, the TAFE family came together to celebrate the life of its former chairman, Mr. A. Sivasailam - a visionary, pioneer, philanthropist and the people's man, on the occasion of his birth anniversary. He was TAFE's growth architect who enriched the lives of many and empowered the dreams of farmers across the world.

Embedding 'Quality' into TAFE's DNA and sculpting it into a values driven company, with the farmer at the heart of its strategy, Mr. Sivasailam is a presence always guiding and leading us.

A jewel from our archives, here's a picture of the TAFE Product Training Centre (PTC) located at Kelambakkam near Chennai, shot probably in the 1970s.

The PTC was formally started in 1963 and carried forward its tradition of providing technical training to countless TAFE employees, dealer staff, government officials and farmers over the last five decades.
