New Delhi: Under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) component of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), camps are being organized for the orientation of candidates.
This mode is suitable where a certain group/cluster of candidates with particular skill sets are concentrated, and candidates are provided with a mandatory orientation of 12 hours.
On 10 July 2021, around 23 lakh candidates have been oriented in around 22 thousand RPL Camps across the country and 1.37 crore candidates have been enrolled under PMKVY; out of which, 1.29 crore candidates are trained/oriented for the skilled programmes.
To enhance job opportunities, demand-driven skill training is being imparted in National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) aligned job roles developed by industry-led Sector Skill Councils (SSCs). Furthermore, placement under the scheme has been linked with payout to training providers. The last tranche, i.e., 30% of total pay-out is being disbursed to training providers on ensuring placement of the candidates. Further, to enhance the placement of the certified candidates, the following support is provided under the scheme:
- Conduct of Rozgar Melas with the support of Sector Skill Councils, training providers, and implementing agencies;
- Post-placement support of Rs. 1,500 per month per trainee is applicable for special groups (women, PWD, transgender);
- One-time placement travel cost up to a maximum of Rs. 4,500 per candidate;
- Implementation of the employer-led training model for captive placement; and
- Career progression support of Rs. 5,000 per candidate to the training provider for every candidate who gets Rs. 15,000 per month job.
