Cabinet has given nod to India’s first National Policy on Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, which aims to streamline 70+ skill development programs currently being run, across 21 ministries. This new policy will help to train more people at a swifter pace, and streamline the duration of these trainings. With emphasis on women, this new policy will encourage and empower innovation based entrepreneurship, and help create more jobs in the shortest possible time.
Framework of guidelines and scope for a National Skill Development Mission has also been formulated. This is line with the promise made by Govt. while announcing Union Budget last year regarding creation of a skill development mission.
