Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra
Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra (PMKK) for Skilling in Smart Cities has been setup by the government in collaboration with New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC). It aims to bring momentum in skilling through collaborative efforts. Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is being run by the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) while National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) is the implementing agency for the scheme. The new skill development centres underscore the commitment of the Ministry of Urban Affairs & Housing (MUHA) and the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) to support skilling in smart cities. National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), an executive arm of MSDE, has collaborated with New Delhi Municipal Council Smart City Limited (NDMCSCL) to extend cooperation for setting up of PMKK Centres for Smart Cities, to provide skill training for unemployed youth through its short-term training (STT) module and contribute to the capacity building of municipal employees through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) program. At present there are 221 job roles available with 34 skill councils for which the courses are being offered across the nation.
