Rural India has a large number of youth between the ages of 15 to 35, meaning the employable age group. If given the proper skills and training, this number can be transformed into people who actually contribute to economic development in the country. The world is predicted to face a shortage of workforce by 2020, this gives India an amazing opportunity to use their demographic surplus as a demographic dividend.
The Ministry of Rural Development implemented the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana to drive national growth by developing skills in the youth belonging to rural poor families and to improve their livelihoods and to reduce poverty. One of the reasons that this scheme is valued so much is because of its ability to reduce poverty.
Rural families face many challenges when it comes to finding employment. These challenges include, lack of formal education, marketable skills and shortage of financial resources. The DDU-GKY initiative aspires to bridge that gap, and focuses on providing employment opportunities, placement support, job retention and foreign opportunities to the youth of rural families.
DDU-GKY aims to provide a steady monthly income that is equal to or above the amount that they receive in the form of daily wages.
To be eligible to apply for this programme, one would need to be an Indian national between the age group of 15-35 years. For minorities, SC/ST and women, the age limit is extended till 45 years.
The main aim of this scheme is to transform the rural poor into economically independent and sufficient beings. A lot of rural poor families are left with very limited financial resources, because of them being daily wage earners. This scheme allows them to have some form of a steady income, which in turn empowers them and encourages their career aspirations.
AISECT has partnered with the DDU-GKY scheme to set up training centers in various sectors of the economy. It is suggested that an individual select the area they wish to train on, on the basis of their interests, as this gives them a better chance of employment and future success.
One of the most unique factors about this scheme is that it is completely socially inclusive and allows for every section of the society to apply and participate.
AISECT has been implementing DDUGKY Project since 2014 in four states namely Madhya Pradesh,Gujarat, Punjab and Haryana. The status of this project currently as follows :
