Ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship to kick-start training in 600 districts 

The Economic Times , Jan 12, 2021

Ministry of skills development and entrepreneurship will soon kick-start skills training in 600 districts across all states barring four from January 15 under the new Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana-3.0.

A senior government official told ET that four states including Himachal Pradesh, Chattisgarh and West Bengal, however have not granted permission for skills training either due to Covid related local restriction of local elections.

The scheme, which will be rolled out for the current financial year, will however see a significant spillover as the training requires a minimum of three months. The current fiscal will end on March 31, 2021.

The scheme envisages training of 8 lakh candidates over next three months with an expected outlay of over Rs 900 crore.

The third phase of PMKVY (PMKVY-III) will focus on strengthening district skill committees to identify and cater to local skilling needs.

"After the successful implementation of PMKVY 1 & 2 schemes, the government will soon launch PMKVY-3 scheme," skills development minister MahendraNath Pandey said at a FICCI event on Tuesday.

The government had launched the PMKVY scheme in 2015 and revamped it in 2016 to impart skills to 1 crore persons by 2020 at an allocation of Rs 12,000 crore. However, the targets were nearly achieved with just Rs 7000 crore with large scale certification under the recognition of prior learning component of the scheme.
