The third section of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) 3.0 will likely be launched on January 15 in 600 districts throughout India. Under the third section, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) goals to prepare 8 lakh candidates. The MSDE claims that now the main focus will likely be on new-age and COVID-related skills.

The ministry claims to have “improved the newer version of the scheme to match the current policy doctrine and energize the skilling ecosystem affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic”.

The scheme will run with an outlay of Rs 948.90 crore. The 729 Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras (PMKKs), empaneled non-PMKK coaching centres and greater than 200 ITIs below Skill India will likely be rolling out PMKVY 3.0 coaching.
