The third phase of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) 3.0 will begin on January 15 in 600 districts of India. In the third phase, the Ministry of Skills Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) plans to train 8 Lakh candidates. MSDE says the focus will now be on New Age and COVID skills.
The ministry claims to have “updated the new version of the system to respond to current political doctrine and strengthen the skills ecosystem affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The program operates at a cost of Rs 948.90. The 729 Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras (PMKKs), qualified non-PMKK training centers and more than 200 ITI under Skill India will introduce PMKVY 3.0 training.
The Skill India mission was launched in 2015 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, under which the flagship PMKVY operates.
PMVYK 3.0 is launched by the Minister of Skills Development and Entrepreneurship, Dr. Mahendranath Pandey, in the presence of the Minister of State Raj Kumar Singh. The event is also raised by ministers and members of parliament.
The launch will help youth across the country to develop skills.
