PMKVY: The Noble Initiative and How It Impacts Growth

The skill development training programs have been taken to the next level with Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana. The long term vision is to find solutions to increasing employment opportunities in rural areas by providing training on areas like apprenticeship, entrepreneurship and skill development.


Since 2016, the government has imparted training to over 6.9 million people under the PMKVY scheme. This is being implemented with the objective of training 10 million people under short term learning and recognition of prior learning across the country within a span of four years. A total of 12 crores is dedicated to this. The aim of skill development is to standardize skill training in India and also to retain skills that already exist.


Often, there is a shortage of employment opportunities in rural areas, which is what these skill development initiatives aspire to solve. Under this initiative, rural youth are employed and earn more than the daily wage earner. This not only provides them with a stable and regular income but empowers them to continue working hard. 


A lot of times, the youth tends to drop out of school or college and starts taking up odd jobs to help their families. These jobs are not always stable. The PMKVY aspires to provide them with stable jobs instead. 


There are certain stages of getting trained and certified under the Pradhan Mantri skill development initiative.
