Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan Launches Rashtriya Udyamita Vikas Pariyojana

On Tuesday, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister of Education, Skill Development, and Entrepreneurship, launched the Rashtriya Udyamita Vikas Pariyojana in Sambalpur, Odisha. The project was also launched virtually in nine cities, including Bhopal, Kanpur, Indore, Varanasi, Bharatpur, Shillong, Silchar, Dibrugarh, and Guwahati, highlighting its national reach.

The initiative aims to equip individuals with comprehensive entrepreneurship training, aligning with the vision of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi of creating job providers rather than job seekers. The project will offer comprehensive entrepreneurship training over 22 weeks, combining theoretical knowledge with practical exposure through experiential learning.

The training will be conducted through offline, online, and hybrid modes, with certificates awarded upon completion, enhancing the course’s credibility and value. The government has partnered with Flipkart to skill street vendors and small shopkeepers, providing them with a stipend and training to expand their businesses. Under the pilot program, street vendors of 10 big cities of the country will be given a stipend along with training to expand their businesses.

Sri Dharmendra Pradhan interacted with beneficiaries of the PM SVANidhi scheme from ten states, sharing their experiences on how the scheme serves as a catalyst in receiving industry-relevant skill training from renowned organizations and propelling their businesses to newer heights. In the pilot phase, the project will be implemented through 20 Centres of National Institute of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (NIESBUD) in Noida and 10 Centres of Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE) in Guwahati.

The inauguration of the Rashtriya Udyamita Vikas Pariyojana reaffirms the government’s commitment to harnessing the nation’s skill potential and realizing the vision of a “Kushal Bharat Viksit Bharat.” The project will be piloted initially in selected districts, with a focus on ensuring 40% participation by women. A robust monitoring mechanism will track progress, assess impact, and ensure adherence to quality standards.

With a focus on entrepreneurship promotion, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, NIESBUD, and IIE have collectively trained over 17 lakh individuals in entrepreneurship development programs, marking a significant achievement in India’s journey towards fostering a culture of entrepreneurship.
