European Union (EU) will provide vocational education and training in India to the marginalized groups in an attempt to help India increase its skilled workforce. EU has come up with a scheme under which it will provide financial assistance of Euro 500,000 to 10,00,000 to groups in India to spend on skill development.

'The aim is to support the objectives of skill development in India where majority of the workforce lack expertise,' said Daniele Smadja, ambassador and head of Delegation of the European Commission to India, Bhutan and Nepal. At present, two to three million people are getting professional training in India. The Eleventh Plan envisages increasing this number to 15 million.
