Union Budget 2017 Expands Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras
Agree or don’t agree – the only people who can make or break a nation in the future are the youth of the nation. So, it is important to ensure that the youth of a country has the necessary skills that will help the nation to ride on them and propel into a bright future.
This is where India trumps almost every country in this world. Indian youth demography makes every other nation in the world jealous. Did you know that 65% of Indian population are youth? That’s a type of demographic distribution that places India in a very advantageous position.
This particular area has been the primary focus of the Narendra Modi government which launched the massive Skill India program for energizing Indian youth and make their market-ready – be it domestic or international arena.
Why Skill India?
One of the primary objectives of the Union Government has been to transform into the Skill Capital of world. With that aspiration in mind, Union Government’s Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship of MSDE started providing vocational training to those who are eligible for such training through tangible training centers, which are known as Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra. In English, they are referred to as MTCs or Model Training Centers.
Working towards the creation of a skilled labor force, MSDE commissioned NSDC or National Skills Development Corporation and tasked it with the responsibility of creating Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras. The core objectives of NSDC were defined as:
- Create training centers that will work as benchmark. Such centers will convey the aspirations of the government to impart competency-based training that will develop a skilled labor force for India.
- Such centers should have sustainability and quality as their driving force and they should properly connect with every single stakeholder in the process of delivering the skills.
- The centers should not be driven by mandate. They should not be icons of footloose model. Rather, they should become sustainable institutions and serve as model for others.
Does that answer the question, “Why Skill India?”
Here is something more you should know:
- Most of the youth employed in India are unskilled and are employed in the informal sector. Because they are unskilled, they cannot grab better earning opportunities.
- Because they are unskilled, their employers (majorly the MSMEs) also take the beating as the MSMEs fail to improve on quality as a well as quantity, thereby losing their competitive edge in international arena.
With skilled labor force, India can not only see a massive growth in its informal employment sector but can also experience growth and improvement in:
- Demand of products and services
- Increase in economic growth rate
- Increase in GDP of the nation
There is much more to add to this list but since this article is not intended for going into such details, we will stop.
Skill India actually came with some conditions for eligibility
There were some eligibility conditions for Skill India. Here are those conditions:
- Only those youths can enroll who are of Indian nationality.
- Youths should be willing to work in a sector for which they are eligible.
- Youths should have 1-year certification from launch date of the scheme.
- Should not ask for (or use unfair means to get) the monetary reward more than once in entire lifetime.
Expansion of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras
As a beginning point for Skill India, the Union Government pin pointed 60 districts in India and ordered NSDC to open and operate Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras in those districts. However, in Budget 2017, Arun Jaitley – the current Union Finance Minister announced that the government has now decided to increase the coverage to 600 districts in India.
This decision will widen the scope and coverage of Skill India as more and more youth will come under the radar of NSDC.
One of the reasons why the government decided to extend Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras is that the government is about to start with the second phase of Skill India. This second phase is known as Skill Strengthening for Industrial Value Enhancement. It is abbreviated as STRIVE. The government has given a budget allocation of INR 2,200 crores for STRIVE implementation.
STRIVE will look towards improving on the skill training provided by ITIs in India. With industry cluster approach, STRIVE will strengthen apprenticeship programme. STRIVE will majorly focus on market-centric training to improve the market-readiness of Indian youth both at national and international levels.
Apart from extending the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras to 600 districts, the government has also decided to set up what is known as “India International Skill Centers”. 100 such centers will be created. The purpose of these new 100 centers will be to train the Indian youths in foreign languages so that those who want to look for job opportunities in other countries, can grasp the language necessary for communication in that particular geographical demography.
National Rural Livelihood Mission
While staying on the topic of Skill India, it is pretty important to say that while Skill India is more urban-oriented program, the Union Government has not ignored the rural youth. The government has decided to impart training to 5 lakh youths in rural India under Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana, which is commonly referred to as Rural Livelihood Mission. The overall training will be completed by year 2022 but for the upcoming fiscal – 2017-2018, 20,000 rural youths will receive mason training. The estimated cost for this whole program will be INR 4,500 crores.
