Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna (PMKVY)
The Indian Youth is very industrious and talented. Unfortunately, the lack of formal skill training prevents deserving talent from being employed. PMKVY aims to leverage the potential of India’s demographic dividend by providing skill-training and making every skilled youth employable. Training will be provided based on industry aligned National Occupational Standards through training providers and Sector Skill Councils. Under PMKVY, candidates will be eligible for a monetary reward, upon successful completion of their training and also clearing the assessment by an independent assessment agency appointed by Sector Skill Council. Moreover the candidates will also receive a Government recognized certificate which helps them become gainfully employed.
The changing demographic profile of the country, with 54% of its population under 25 years of age, rising aspirations of the youth seeking better jobs, and growing expectations of employers for an efficient, well trained workforce have contributed to a focus on skill development in India.
