Abhi Chauhan was clear that he wanted to learn the skills of selling, marketing and entrepreneurship at ASDC.


Abhi Chauhan has completed Diploma in Civil Engineering. He had a dream to start a business. One of his friends informed him about Saksham – Adani Skill Development Centre at Surat. When our counsellor spoke to him, he was clear that he wanted to learn the skills of Selling, Marketing & Entrepreneurship. So we suggested him to start training himself in Retail Sales Associate.

From the first day, he was very enthusiastic and attended all the classes. He went for 5-day OJT (On Job Training) at Big Bazar and got himself certified. He was one of the first students who got a Gold certificate under PMKVY examination in ASDC. After completion of training, he was successfully placed at Big Bazar, Surat and he continued his job for 6 months and then left to fulfil his dreams of being an Entrepreneur.

He found out that he can pitch in selling Men’s Handkerchief and his customers are higher middle-class people and affluent people he chose the brand name “SWANS” and when questioned why this name? he answers with a smile stating that “Rich people like English names”.

Abhi Chauhan has received the order of handmade handkerchief of Rs. 1.5 lac from Adani Hazira port. He received end to end support from ASDC Surat team after he completed Retail Sales Associate course from Surat Centre.
