We have 65% of the population below 35 years of age, how will they face the challenges if they are not skilled? If they can’t face challenges,they themselves will become a challenge for us, India’s 1st priority is to generate employment opportunities”, PM Modi. “Only a graduation certificate is not enough. We need skills. We need to concentrate on skill development”, He added.
With the mission to empower Indian youth, India’s Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, has launched the #SkillIndia Campaign. It is an initiative to help the people develop job-centric skills and find the right job.
As the Skill India mission, PM Modi has launched ‘Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana’ under which skill training would be given to 24 lakh youth over the next year. Also, the trained candidates would be awarded with incentives too.
“It will also be a vehicle to achieve the objectives of the National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship 2015, which will provide policy direction and guidance to all stakeholders in the skill development and entrepreneurship ecosystem,” says Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy.
“This mission is not limited to skill, we have linked entrepreneurship to it. Parents from middle-class,lower middle-class & poor families ask their children to learn some skill so that they can stand on their feet”, says Modi.
Skill Loan’ initiative is also launched at the event, where loans from Rs.5,000 to Rs.1.5 lakh will be available to more than 34 lakh youth, who seek to attend skill development programmes, over the next five years.
