The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) had launched Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) in the year 2015. The objective of this Skill Certification scheme is to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevent skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood. Individuals with prior learning experience or skills will also be assessed and certified under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) component of the Scheme. RPL mainly focuses on the individuals engaged in unregulated sectors.
The objectives of RPL are primarily three-fold :
i) to align the competencies of the un-regulated workforce of the country to the standardized National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF),
ii) to enhance the career/employability opportunities of an individual as well as provide alternative routes to higher education and iii) to provide opportunities for reducing inequalities based on privileging certain forms of knowledge over others.
