NEW DELHI: In the process of nation-building, it is the economic empowerment of its citizens that forms the cornerstone of progress. Recognising this, the Government of India unveiled the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), a transformative initiative aimed at skilling and upskilling to empower millions of individuals nationwide.
PMKVY was launched in 2015 to encourage and promote skill development in the country by providing free short-duration skill training and incentivising this by providing monetary rewards to youth for skill certification. The underlying objective is to boost economic growth by connecting the industry with a skilled workforce. More than 1.38 crore candidates have been trained/ oriented under PMKVY since the scheme’s inception till date In fact, many people especially women have exemplified the transformative impact of the PM Kaushal Vikas Yojana.
PMKVY’s impact is not just limited to these women. Empowering one woman radiates ripples of change across society, leaving a trail of empowerment and development as it progresses.
As women earn and contribute to the economy, families thrive, children flourish, communities prosper, and gender stereotypes fade. This ripple effect lays the foundation of a strong nation, painting a more equitable and vibrant future for India, one woman at a time.
Government welfare schemes like the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) and Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) have emerged as potent tools in empowering women across India.
After completing the training under the PMKVY, people across the states acquired a loan under yet another Government of India scheme called Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana. With this money, they started their venture to sustain themselves. These two government schemes gave them the wings to fly as they springboarded their dreams into a reality
