Rail Kaushal Vikas Yojana
Rail Kaushal Vikas Yojana was recently launched by the Central Government under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY). Through this new scheme, the Indian Railways will train 50,000 individuals over the period of three years. The candidates will be trained as an electrician, welder, mechanist or a fitter.
The training under this scheme will be provided at free of cost. The candidates will be selected through online application in a transparent manner on the basis of academic performances. Apart from improving the employability of youth, the newly launched scheme will also upgrade the skills of those who are self-employed or working in contract basis through upskilling and reskilling.
