Jugal Kishore Sharma while addressing the gathering said that the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) has added a new dimension to skill development by focusing on its role of “market-maker” which is bringing attention particularly in sectors where financial and market mechanisms are ineffective. The objective of this Skill Certification Scheme is to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood. Under this Scheme, Training and Assessment fees are completely paid by the Government. The launch of skill development programme received overwhelming response from participants.
