Skill-Training to Unemployed Minority Youths

In order to provide skill training to unemployed minority youths in the country who are a sizeable number, the Ministry of Minority Affairs has taken up a number of Schemes. They include:

(i) Establishment of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and Polytechnics under Multi- sectoral Development Programme (MsDP);

(ii) Free Coaching is provided under the Scheme “Free Coaching and Allied Scheme for the candidates belonging to minority communities”; and

(iii) Financial assistance / loan is provided by the National Minorities Development and Finance Corporation (NMDFC).

Besides these exclusive Schemes, the Government of India has instituted a Coordinated Action on Skill Development with a three–tier structure involving PM’s National Council on Skill Development supported by the National Skill Development Coordination Board and the National Skill Development Corporation. The action aims at creation of a pool of skilled manpower with adequate skills that meets the employment requirement across various sectors of the national economy. The emphasis is on inclusivity so as to deal with divides of gender, rural/urban, organized/unorganized employment and traditional / contemporary work place.
