India has a population of 1.2 billion and out of this only 5%, skilled manpower works in various sectors. This has created huge skill gaps in all the major sectors and to fill in these gaps our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched Skill India Campaign on 15th July 2015. The main objective of this campaign is to skill unskilled workforce and make India a ‘skilled capital of the world.’
India has left behind China and the United Kingdom to become the largest and fastest-growing economy in the world. This has created tremendous demand for skilled workforce in all the major sectors like IT, Telecom, BFSI, Agriculture, Mining and Manufacturing firms.
To meet the demand of these sectors the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship launched the National Skill Development Mission to initiate skill development schemes all over in India to fulfil the industrial requirements of the skilled workforce. To work towards this mission more than 20 departments/ministries have launched 70 plus skill development schemes in India.

These skill development schemes also help people to improve their living conditions not only by getting good employment opportunities but also to become self-employed.
