Com­ple­ment­ing Make in In­dia with Skill In­dia

Consumer Voice - - Guide/ About Make In India -

“The youth of the na­tion doesn't want to live a life of pity. They want to live with self-re­spect and dig­nity... The coun­try’s first pri­or­ity is gen­er­at­ing em­ploy­ment for the youth. We have to cre­ate struc­tures and mech­a­nisms to nur­ture young­sters, en­abling them to find em­ploy­ment... Through a pol­icy-driven ap­proach, we have waged a war against poverty and we have to win this war.

“In­dia will soon be the largest provider of skilled work­force to the world. If China has be­come the man­u­fac­tur­ing cap­i­tal of the world, In­dia will be the hu­man re­source cap­i­tal of the world,” said the prime min­is­ter while launch­ing the Skill In­dia ini­tia­tive af­ter about a year of launch­ing the Make in In­dia.

The ob­jec­tive of the ini­tia­tive is to train over 40 crore In­di­ans in dif­fer­ent skills by 2022. The core be­lief be­hind the ini­tia­tive is that In­dia will emerge, af­ter ini­ti­a­tion of the pro­gramme in 2015, as the top des­ti­na­tion glob­ally for for­eign di­rect in­vest­ment. The ma­jor ob­jec­tive be­hind the ini­tia­tive is to fo­cus on job cre­ation and skill en­hance­ment in 25 sec­tors of the econ­omy.
