PMKVY is implemented by NSDC under the guidance of the MSDE. 17.95 lakh people completed fresh trainings and 1.8 lakh people were up-skilled as part of RPL trainings in PMKVY-1. Owing to its successful first year implementation, the Union Cabinet has approved the Scheme for another four years (2016 – 2020) to impart skilling to 10 million youth of the country.
