PM Modi launches ambitious Skill India Mission to empower country’s youth

1

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday inaugurated the Skill India Mission which seeks to provide the institutional capacity to train a minimum of 300 million skilled people in India by the year 2022.

The development comes on the same day when the government received an excellence award from US-based consulting firm Frost & Sullivan for its Make-in-India initiative.

In November last year, PM Modi had set up the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship to drive the ‘Skill India’ campaign in a ‘Mission Mode’. The campaign will converge existing skill training initiatives and combine scale and quality of skilling efforts, and it expects to achieve this through speed.

The ‘Skill India’ programme would also offer a passage for overseas employment through specific programmes, mapping global job requirements and benchmarking international standards.

A national database called the Labour Market Information System (LMIS) will be maintained. LMIS will help matching the demand and supply of skilled workforce in the country.

A National Skill Development Mission will also be run from the Centre which will execute the Mission’s objectives. The Mission will be headed by the Prime Minister at the apex level.

The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship will bear the administrative expenses of the programme.
