Hon'ble Prime Minister of India has launched the National Skill Development Mission on 15.07.2015 on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day. The Mission has been developed to create convergence across sectors and States in terms of skill training activities. Ministry of Finance instructed the Ministry of Human Resource Development that the Vocational Education component of Adult Education Scheme should be carried out within the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana under the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE).
The Scheme of Jan Shikshan Sansthan has been transferred from Ministry of Human Resource Development to Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship in July-2018. MSDE has kept its original philosophy and renamed it as Scheme of Support to Jan Shikshan Sansthan (NGOs) for Skill Development.
