Skill Development Ministry has begun skill training of three Lakh migrant workers from the identified 116 districts across six States. These States are Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand. The initiative aims to empower migrant workers and rural population in the post-COVID era through demand-driven skilling and orientation under Centrally Sponsored and Centrally Managed component of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 2016 – 2020. The Ministry said, in collaboration with the concerned District Collectors and District Magistrates, is rolling out the programme across these districts for skill training within 125 days. The training has already started in certain parts of the identified districts and will gradually expand to other parts in the course of the month.
Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey said that rural development through skill empowerment is a fundamental element of Skill India mission as 70 per cent of the total workforce comes from rural India. He said, the vision of making rural workforce attuned with the changing needs of the industry requires seamless synergies between various partners in the skilling ecosystem. The Skill Development Ministry has trained more than 92 lakh candidates so far under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 2016 to 2020.
