We have requested the government to sanction around Rs 7,50,000 crore to achieve the mission by 2022. We are awaiting the governments decision in this regard, chairman, sub- group, skill development, Planning Commission, MN Chaini, said.
The government has already spent Rs 32,000 crore in skill-development. We need more money to accelerate the project, Chaini said. The government has set up a national policy on skill development to create a workforce empowered with improved skills and knowledge to gain access to decent employment and ensure the countrys competitiveness in the dynamic global labour market.
