Amid the intensifying farmer's protest, the Center is going to launch the third phase of its flagship skilling scheme Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY 3.0) today (15 Jan 2020) in 600 districts across all the states of the country.

As per reports, PMKVY 3.0 envisages training of eight lakh candidates over the scheme period of 2020-2021, with an outlay of Rs 948.90 crore.

This phase will focus on new-age and COVID-related skills, spearheaded by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said an official statement.

Union Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Mahendra Nath Pandey will launch the scheme, says reports.

The 729 Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras (PMKKs), empaneled non-PMKK training centres and more than 200 industrial training institutes under Skill India will be rolling out PMKVY 3.0 training to build a robust pool of skilled professionals, the statement added.

Newer version of scheme to match the current policy doctrine of COVID-19 Pandemic

On the basis of the learning gained from PMKVY 1.0 and PMKVY 2.0, the Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Ministry has improved the newer version of the scheme to match the current policy doctrine and energize the skilling ecosystem affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Skill India Mission on July 15, 2015 which has gained momentum through the launch of its flagship scheme PMKVY to unlock the vision of making India the ‘Skill Capital’ of the world.
