The National Skill Development Corporation- PMKVY campaign strives to train Indian youth in the industry specific skills with the help of training partners & centres. By developing skills, the campaign further aims to help the youth get employed. NSDC plays three major roles in the campaign which includes funding and incentivising, enabling support services and shaping/creating thereon. Undeniably, the campaign is playing a significant role in employing the youth but failed to provide placements as per the recent analyses.
According to reports, only 45% of the people who were trained in the Phase 1 of the PMKVY are placed till now. Mr Rachit Jain, Founder & CEO shared, “The major reason is the gaps in the Skilling — Assessing — Placement process. In order to overcome the hurdle, it’s requisite that firstly, the youth is given a platform to practice the skills. Secondly, the training centers must connect with recognized companies to be able to meet job opportunities for skilled people. We at http://www.youth4work.com/ aim to serve not just the training centers but more importantly the students residing in rural areas as they often lack privileges.”
