Before starting first of all we understand what is a skill and why it is required. Skill is the ability to do something in a good manner, after taking training or practice. And why it is required because, on the basis of skill, a person could do some work and earn.

Through the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, the Indian government developed a program called Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana with this goal in mind (MSDE). Furthermore, it was carried out by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).

This program is launched with the thought that every young citizen of India could get a job or start a business after taking skill training in a particular field. They take training under a government program or organization and take certificates also.

On 15 Jan 2021the third phase of PMKVY is launched under the Ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship. with the goal of fostering skill development among India’s young population in support of the country’s vision to become the world’s capital of skills.

After studying the output of phases 1 and 2 this time third phase is working in a decentralized structure with a big involvement of the state and committees at the district level as well. With the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat PMKVY 3.0 is more planned and learner-centric. For the youth between 15 -45 years about 8 lakh people, this scheme is launched with an annual figure of Rs 948.90 crore.

Both central and state are the two components of this scheme. I.e., the National skill development corporation from the central component and the state skill development mission from the state component can execute this scheme.
