There was the big question every one were asking, from aspiring trainees to the National Training Partner of NSDC STAR Scheme,
Government has already allocated Rs 1500 Crore for the PMKVY for year 2015-16 and Expected to launch at the end of May
All training partners, NSDC and MSDE meet in Delhi (in Indian Habitat Center on 13th May) to discuss the roll out of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna (PMKVY) 1st phase of PMKVY,
And Sector Skill Council (SSC) has started allocating targets for the Pilot phase (June) , Based on performances of an individual Training Partner, further Targets will be allocated in the Month of July.
Pushing forward the agenda to skill youth that would also provide workers for its ‘Make in India’ programme, the Union Cabinet on Friday approved the NDA government’s flagship skill development scheme — the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).
The scheme, which will replace the earlier STAR Scheme that was implemented through the National Skill Development Corporation, aims to provide monetary reward of Rs 8,000 to trainees on successful completion and certification of skill training course. Higher rewards would be given to those pursuing skill training in manufacturing trades. It has been allocated Rs 1,500 crore.
The new scheme would cover 24 lakh persons that would include 14 lakh youth who would be skilled and 10 lakh workers who would be given recognition for prior learning. A special focus of the scheme would be Class X and Class XII dropouts.
Based on advice from the Prime Minister’s Office, the training of workers would also emphasise on soft skills and competency in computer usage.
“Skilling courses would be based on industry demand and a higher reward would be given to those training for manufacturing jobs. This will also give a push to the government’s ‘Make in India’ programme that requires trained workers,” said a senior government official.
Students would have to mandatorily have an Aadhar number as well as a bank account for transfer of the electronic transfer of the reward. The skill development ministry is also working on linking the scheme with the skill development loans that provide lending of up to Rs 20,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh to students to take such courses.
“The ministry is in talks with the Indian Banks Association and the department of financial services to simplify the process for getting skill development loans. This would also improve the off take of such loans,” said the official.
Finance minister Arun Jaitley had announced the scheme as part of the Union Budget 2015-16 to help improve the employability of rural youth. “Rs 1,500 crore has been set apart for this scheme. Disbursement will be through a digital voucher directly into qualified student’s bank account,” he had announced.
Of the Rs 1,500 crore outlay for the scheme, 10 per cent has been allocated to training of youth from north eastern states.
NSDC has formed industry wise Sector Skill Council (SSC) boards which in turn have created a training framework to upskill professionals on specific job roles.
So all fingers are crossed on Mr. Ruddy ji , Hunar Hai to Kadar Hai
