On 15th July, which has been designated as ‘The World Skills Day’, the Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi launched the ‘Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana’ (PMKVY), the flag-ship scheme for the Government’s ‘Skill India’ campaign. Skill development has received the necessary attention it deserves following the formulation of the National Skill India Mission and the revision of the Skills Policy. The Skills Policy has been revised to address the gap that exists in the labour market between the huge demand for skilled labour and its scanty supply. The industry, across all sectors, is always in need of resources that are well trained to deliver services and are aligned to standardized levels of specialization in a given field. Industry expectations however are often not met by new recruits or the required degree of expertise is absent. It is in this context that the Skill India Mission becomes relevant. The Skill India Mission with the clarity provided by the revised Skills Policy seeks to:

  • Create aspiration among youth for skill development
  • Initiate training capacity building measures
  • Ensure standardization of the quality of training delivered
  • Integrate stakeholders involved in the process of training
  • Actively engage the industry in skill development – from designing of content to its delivery
  • Promote entrepreneurship among skilled youth
  • Promote skill development among marginal groups
    • The success of the Skill India Mission should also determine the progress of the ‘Make in India’ Campaign whose objective is to position India as an international human resource hub that is capable of meeting the worldwide skilled labour needs.
