C-DAC is a national initiative, a mission to bring forth India as a major force in developing world class information technologies. C-DAC is governed by a 12 member Governing Council chaired by the Hon'ble Minister for Communications and Information Technology.

C-DAC's expertise also extends to other areas of Information Technology. It has undertaken pioneering work in the field of Multi-lingual and multimedia technologies, education and training and has extended its expertise in developing and deploying IT based solutions.

With over 20 years of pioneering Research in Language Technology, GIST has to its credit several innovative products and cutting edge technology which have revolutionized computing and made GIST synonymous with Indian Language Computing.

Today GIST technologies forms an integral part of mission critical activities of various organizations. Mindful of the social function of computing the GIST technologies also powers the National initiatives especially meant for masses in the areas of e-Governance, education, agriculture, health, banking and communication and so on. GIST has always been at the forefront of the standardization initiative and provides expertise to National as well as to International bodies such as BIS, ICANN, W3C, and Unicode.

With the objective of deriving advantage of these technologies, C-DAC introduced a country wide Programme for Advancing Computer Education (PACE) under which the training is provided up to the grass root level in the diverse areas of computer usage and information technology applications covering Indian languages.

C-DAC has established the PACE (Programme for Advancing Computer Education) training programme in January 1996 and has over 250 Authorized Training Centers (ATC) spread across almost all district/village/municipality of the country. These ATCs are well equipped with the latest software, hardware and with a state-of-the-art infrastructure, thus providing an excellent environment for students to develop their computing skills. All C-DAC GIST-PACE courses are designed with special features to ensure rich, cost-effective and supportive training to the student and provide a strong career foundation. We also focus on the project-based training yet covering the entire syllabus with a multilingual advantage.

With the steps taken by the Central Government to encourage the use of local language in their administration, providing relevant and real time information in local language becomes very important. To encourage this, C-DAC through its PACE programme offers the public, several courses on multilingual computing, programmes ranging from short term Basic Computer awareness programs to Post Graduate level (Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Post Graduate Diploma) through a network of 250 Authorised Training Centres (ATCs).
