Kaushal Vikas Yojana

ndian government has launched Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) with an objective of making India the skill capital of the world. Approval to this scheme was given in March 2015 and has been implemented by Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

This would be done by providing training to the country’s youth on various job specific skills which would be utilized under schemes such as Make in India, Clean India Mission, Digital India and others involving various industries such as construction, manufacturing etc.

After Jan Dhan Yojana and Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana, PMKVY is also expected to benefit many Indians.

Skill gap analysis was recently done for the period 2013-2017 under various government schemes. Based on the result it was found there is a shortage of skilled labor in India.
