Millions of Indian youth should go for acquisition of skills and there should be a network across the country for this and not the archaic systems." The Skill Government of India under the government of India is planning to launch the programme to provide vocational education and training to the youth of India. Under this programme, youth will be imparted training and courses to enhance their skills to make them more eligible and qualified for better jobs.
