To meet the current and future demand they launched “Skill India” campaign on 15th July 2015 with an aim to train over 40 crore people in India required in the different sector by 2022. Various initiatives were started under the campaign such as “National Skill Development Mission”, “National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship- 2015”, “Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY)” and the “Skill Loan scheme”.
