We are living in interesting times. We have the world’s largest young population and yet employers are constantly searching for the ‘right talent’. The same is true all over the world, states a report by Accenture . To add to it, most of the jobs from blue to white collar have undergone dramatic transformation and technology infusion, leading to a bigger gap.

Globally speaking, China in the next 15 years is expected to lose 45 Million from its ageing workforce, while India is expected to add over 100 Million young adults ready and waiting for work.  Presently, there is a 55 million  strong rural population unable to access work opportunities, due to socio-economic constraints   and an experiential traditional agricultural skill that need to be upgraded for greater agricultural productivity and supplemented for transition to factories and industries.

Shri Narendra Modi has launched the “Make In India

Furthermore, the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has launched the “Make In India (#MakeInIndia)” campaign to build and re-energize the Indian economy.  But the success of the campaign hinges critically upon the availability of quality manpower.

The answer therefore lies in Skilling. Especially in rural India,

Moving people from poverty to productivity

The Ministry of Rural Development has been the pioneer to invest in Placement linked Skilling with a laser like focus on inclusive growth. Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) is the outcome of the learning and experience gained by the Ministry. DDU-GKY is therefore designed to skill the poor and disadvantaged rural youth to take advantage of the global demographic dynamics, job requirements and domestic industry landscape.

Process of Delivery/ Implementation Architecture of DDU-GKY

DDU-GKY follows a 3-tier implementation model. The primary tier is the National Unit (NU) that functions as the policy-making, technical support, facilitation and investing agency. The next tier is the DDU-GKY State Skill Missions (SSMs) under the State Government/ State Rural Livelihood Missions (SRLM); who co-invest as well as directly supervise and/ or engage with implementation agencies. The last tier is the Project Implementation Agency (PIA). These are publiclyor privately held organizations from specific sector industries, education and training or NGOs who have a reputation in delivering skilling, training and development programs. For instance, the Internal Training Institute of Tata Steel, or Manipal Global, Manpower Group or Bhaskar Foundation or Future Learning are organizations offering diverse skills that partner with DDU-GKY as PIAs.
