India can become the world’s largest provider of a skilled workforce for the world. In order to prepare for this, there is a need for mapping manpower requirements not just in India, but globally as well
The Skill India Scheme, a definitive vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was launched by the Government of India on July 15, 2015, and coincided with the first-ever World Youth Skills Day. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the chief guest for the event held in the plenary hall of Vigyan Bhavan.
The Skill India logo depicts a clenched hand with a spanner and a pencil, exemplifying empowerment of the individual through skilling. The spanner and pencil are held together suggesting, that both skill and general education are at parity and aspirational for India’s youth. The tagline “Kaushal Bharat, Kushal Bharat” suggests that skilling Indians (Kaushal Bharat) will result in a happy, healthy, prosperous and strong nation (Kushal Bharat).
The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship launched the National Skill Development Mission and unveiled a National Policy for Skill Development. Two flagship schemes were also launched.
The Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is a demand-driven, reward-based skill-training scheme that will incentivise skill training by providing financial rewards to candidates who successfully complete approved skill training programmes.
The Skill Loan Scheme is designed to provide loans ranging from Rs. 5,000 to 1.5 lakh to 34 lakh youth of India seeking to attend skill development programmes over the next five years.
The National Skill Development Initiative will empower all individuals through improved skills, knowledge, nationally and internationally recognized qualifications to gain access to decent employment and ensure India’s competitiveness in the global market.
Constant updating of training programmes and syllabi to ensure that the youth are exposed to the latest technology and industry environment.
Promotion of both apprenticeship and entrepreneurship. Predict the possibilities of the future and prepare for them in the present itself.
