This top scheme launched by Modi Government targets people in the age group between 15 and 35 years. Its vision is to turn the rural youth into a globally relevant and an economically independent workforce. It is also tasked with adding diversity to the income of poor rural families and catering to the rural youth’s career aspirations. Rs 1,500 crore is set aside which will be used for enhancing their employability. As part of the skill development initiative of the Modi government, disbursements would be made directly into bank accounts of the students through a digital voucher.
