Ranchi, Oct 13 (KNN) Under the next 1.3 phase of the Gramin Udyami Skill Training Programme about 153 women have already registered which is set to begin in Gumla, Jharkhand by this month or November. 

The upcoming phase is exclusively for women groups and the programme is based on PM Modi’s vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat which targets empowering the rural youth by providing them specific skilling opportunities.


Union Minister for State for Entrepreneurship Rajeev Chandrasekhar will be addressing the Convocation of Gramin Udyami Skill Training Programme (the Village Engineers Programme) in Ranchi on Thursday.

A total of 165 trainees will be receiving the certificates at the Convocation ceremony.

Jharkhand Governor Ramesh Bais will be giving away the certificates.

The pilot project was launched in May this year in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh and covered five states (Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, apart from Madhya Pradesh), during the first leg 152 candidates were enrolled, of which 132 successfully completed the course and were given certificates .

The next leg (Phase 1.2) was held in four states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, and Odisha. A total of 165 candidates will be given the certificates.

Training was provided in five disciplines- electrical and solar energy, agricultural mechanization, e-governance, plumbing and masonry, two-wheeler repair and maintenance.

The main objective of the Village Engineers Programme is to strengthen local village economies and limit migration as well as dependence on cities for livelihood opportunities.

It aims to create new opportunities for employment/self-employment and entrepreneurship locally—so that tribal youth can start their own businesses, generating more livelihood opportunities for themselves as well as for others.  (KNN Bureau)
