“Going forward NSDC (National Skills Development Corporation) will cease to play the role of an implementor of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) and focus on its other three roles,” the ministry has said in its draft vision document.

NEW DELHI: The government plans to revamp its skills framework, including a more targeted Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana and setting up of a dedicated national institute of skill development to centralise skill training and funding.

The proposals form part of the skill development and entrepreneurship ministry’s Vision 2025 to help substantially enhance the scale of skilling in the country in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of making India the skills capital of the world, a senior official said.
