Skill development will be the backbone of Atmnirbhar Bharat and GaribKalyanRozgarAbhiyaan

NEW DELHI. Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey, Union Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, today said that skilling, up-skilling and re-skilling of the India’s workforce will play a crucial role in the success of the Government’s vision of Atmnirbhar Bharat and the recently launched GaribKalyanRozgarAbhiyaan, announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri NarendraModi.

The government is soon to get approval on the next phase of Pradhan Mantri KaushalVikasYojana (PMKVY) which will have increased focus on demand driven skill development, digital technology and skills pertaining to Industry 4.0. The current part of the flagship skill training scheme (PMKVY 2016-2020) is about to conclude and has so far trained close to 73lakh youth in the country, Union Minister of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, DrMahendraNathPandey said in an ASSOCHAM webinar today.

“We need to focus on employment in current scenario and that’s why we will be focusing upon demand-based skilling in the next phase of PMKVY, where we have added certain aspects like - strengthening district skill committees and connecting with local employment offices. District Commissioner and State Skill Development Missions (SSDMs) will also have a crucial role to play and will be connected to the industry bodies so that we can bridge the demand supply gap and impart relevant trainings to the migrant labour who have returned to their home state,” said DrPandey while addressing a webinar, ‘Skill Development Post Covid-19,. He said that if required, the government would give permission to run PMKVY centres and ITIs (Industrial Training Institutes) in 2-3 shifts in order to follow guidelines of social and physical distancing.

DrPandey also urged industry to expand their operations from big cities to small districts and villages and invest in upskilling and re-skilling the youth across rural India which would help make a giant leap towards the success of the Aatmanirbhar BharatAbhiyaan launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri NarendraModi. “We invite private sector people to come forward and impart training and focus on being vocal for local product and services empowering youth to drive local economic growth.”
