Skill Development and Skill Training

Today’s world has seen an unprecedented growth in the number of its young population. A total of 1.8 billion people belong to the age group of 15 to 29 and they represent almost one third of the total population in the world. In India, almost 365 million people fall in the age group of 10 to 24 years. The 2011 Census report of India indicated that approximately 65% of India’s total population is below 35 years and almost 50% of its total population is below 25 years. This demographic dividend is expected to brand India as the youngest nation in the world by the year 2020. Hence, India needs to take a holistic and comprehensive approach to effectively utilise its youth in its socio-economic development. This will only be possible if we take into account the needs of our youth while designing and implementing policies and programmes in order to enable them to contribute to the national development goals.

Skilling the youth is therefore the need of the hour for India. The Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) has indicated that in 2017-18, only 1.8% of the Indian population underwent formal or vocational training and around 5.6% of the population received informal vocational training. It suggests that almost 93% of the population did not receive any formal or informal vocational training. We aim at minimising this gap through maintaining adherence to different skill programmes run under the ambit of Government of India and the state governments. The marginalised section are the primary targets of our programmes.
