The government has planned to train 50 lakh people in factory skills in five years in a bid to bridge the gap between unskilled youth force and industry requirements, Union minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy said today.
“As per the vision of our Prime Minister, India should be the ‘skill capital’. People have education but lack the employability skill. We have the demographic dividend but we need to tap it.
“Our industry also has requirements of skilled workforce. In five years, we need 3 crore people in construction sector…And, therefore, as part of the vision of our ministry,
we plan to train 50 lakh people in five years, in factories with stipend,” he said.
