PMKVY Scheme


Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is the flagship scheme of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) implemented by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). The objective of this Skill Certification scheme is to enable Indian youth to take up industry relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood.

Components of the Scheme

Short Term Training:

STT component imparted at PMKVY Training Centres (TC) is expected to benefit candidates of Indian nationality who are either school/college dropouts or unemployed. Apart from providing training according to the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF), TCs also impart training in soft skills, entrepreneurship, financial and digital literacy. Upon successful completion of assessment, candidates are provided placement assistance by Training Providers.

Recognition of Prior Learning:

Individuals with prior learning experience or skills are assessed and certified under the RPL component of the scheme. Project Implementing Agencies (PIAs) such as Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) or any other agencies designated by MSDE/NSDC are being incentivised to implement RPL projects in any of the three models (RPL camps, RPL at employer’s premise and RPL centres). To address knowledge gaps, PIAs offer bridge courses to RPL candidates along with training on soft skills, job role related safety and hygiene practices.

Special Projects:

The Special Projects component of PMKVY envisages creation of a platform that will facilitate trainings in special areas and/or premises of Government bodies, corporate or industry bodies, and training in special job roles not defined under the available Qualification Packs (QPs)/National Occupational Standards (NOS). Special Projects require some deviation from the short-term training guidelines under PMKVY for any stakeholder. A proposing stakeholder can be institutions of Central or State Government(s) autonomous body/statutory body or any other equivalent body or corporate who desires to provide training to candidates.
