KOLKATA: Rajiv Pratap Rudy, the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship was in Kolkata recently reiterating his ministry's resolve to realize Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision to make India the world's skill capital.
"It is a major challenge for all to build a skill eco-system across the country," Rudy said in a Leadership Oration on "Preparing for Tomorrow through Entrepreneurship and Skill Development" organized by the CII-Suresh Neotia Centre of Excellence for Leadership.
Rudy said as part of its resolve to improve employability of the youth in India, the Centre is all set to initiate a process to integrate skill with education for which the financial assistance will be provided to the states. The Centre will fund the states for developing skill sets among the youth for which the ministry had set up a corpus of Rs 32,000 crore provided by the World Bank, Prime Minister Kaushal Vikas Yojana and Apprentice Yojana, he said.
Rudy also praised the West Bengal government for deciding to set up one ITI in each block in the state, saying the Directorate General of Training (DGT) would grant affiliations to the ITIs. He also stated that the ITIs would be migrated from the labour ministry to his ministry.
