What are the priorities of the youth of the country? What are the big problems for them? What are the challenges that hinder their future? There are only two things at the root of these questions. First- his education. Here education means such education, which can give them bread. And the second thing is job or self-employment. Let's know the complete details about it.

Even after higher education, when jobs are not available, the youth start living under stress. It has come to the fore in many surveys that the youth complete their studies, but they do not have the skills. For this reason, big companies do not hire them despite placement camps.

Companies want to reinstate such personnel and hire such people, who have the necessary skills. The same problem comes with starting one's employment. If you do not have skills, it is difficult to start your work.

The solution to these problems is – Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY). Prime Minister Narendra Modi started this scheme with the slogan of Skill India. It is one of the flagship schemes of the Central Government. This scheme is run by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

What is the objective of this scheme?

The objective of this scheme is to provide industry-related training to the youth of the country so that they can be helped in getting employment. Programs have been prepared according to the skill required in which sector of the market. Through this scheme, the government provides skill development training to the less educated or 10th, 12th drop out i.e. youths who leave school in the middle of their studies.

Only the government pays the fees, you also get money

Under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), youth are given training at the nearest training centers. The government itself pays the fees to the training institute. Not only this, on completion of the training one gets a certificate, the government also gives prize money of up to Rs.8000 to the trainee youth. The government's target was to provide skill training to one crore youth under PMKVY by the year 2020. Although it was affected to a great extent due to the Corona lockdown.
