According to a recent report, India would require 10 crore skilled workers across 24 industries to support 95 percent of the Indian economy by 2022. In order to meet this challenge, the Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is partnering with institutes like ITI to deliver quality training modules.
According to Union Skill Development Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy, ‘Skill India’ has trained 1.02 crore individuals through more than 2000 courses in last two years. Mr Rudy said, “efforts were undertaken to put together a sound ecosystem of imparting quality training and consequent certification for employability”.
Individuals graduating with certification from these programs would receive certification equivalent to CBSE soon. The scheme would also benefit personnel retiring from armed forces of the country. Nearly 60,000 personnel retire each year and will soon be trained in accordance with their inclination.
Mr Rudy also revealed government plans to raise funding from the MUDRA scheme, banks and financial institutions. The end goal of this program is to train future entrepreneurs and enhance job opportunity for others through them.
