PMKVY courses list 2021 (Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 3.0)
1.1 The first version of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) scheme was launched in 2015
to encourage and promote skill development in the country by providing free short duration
skill training and incentivizing this by providing monetary rewards to youth for skill certification.
The overall idea was to boost employability of youth corresponding to the industrial demand.
1.2 After the successful implementation of PMKVY (2015-16) and learnings from the past, PMKVY
2.0 (2016-20) was launched by scaling up sectors, geographies and by greater alignment with other
missions / programs of Government of India such
as ‘Make in India’, ‘Digital India’ and ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’. PMKVY 2.0 is being implemented since
15th July 2016 and was scheduled to be completed by 31st March 2020. The scheme has been
extended for one year for skilling of migrant workers.
1.3 Based on the learnings of PMKVY 2.0 and to reorient the scheme to be in sync with the present
scenario of policy changes and changing priority in different sectors, it is decided to speed up the
implementation of PMKVY 3.0. The scheme shall be implemented in two phases: 1st phase shall be
implemented on pilot basis during the year 2020- 21 known as PMKVY 3.0 (2020-21). The scheme

similar programs that have goals similar to PMKVY 3.0 for generation of livelihood opportunities for
the candidates trained under the scheme.1.5 A comprehensive mapping of the schemes being
run by Central / State Governments shall be done, in order to create a mechanism for better
convergence, in a phased manner, with PMKVY 3.0.This will ensure a greater linkage of the schemes
with the skills ecosystem.

Implementation Strategy :-
6.1 The scheme envisages working more closely with the State and District machineries through
SSDMs and DSCs. DSCs would be playing a pivotal role under the guidance of SSDMs in PMKVY
3.0. In addition to mobilization, counselling and batch-formation, DSCs would also be involved in
monitoring and supervision of the scheme at the district level, coordinating with nodal and other ITIs
for implementation of STT, provide post-training support including handholding for placements /
self-employment, verification of placements and grievance redressal. Table 2 outlines the roles.
Financial Management :-
The General Financial Rules (GFR) shall be followed by SSDM and NSDC in regards to
PMKVY 3.0. NSDC and SSDM shall adhere to the Guidelines regarding expenditure and
submission of Utilization Certificates (UCs).Funds under the scheme will be transacted
under Public Financial Management System(PFMS) platform. Direct monetary rewards as
paid to the candidates shall be done through PFMS linking with Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT)
Features under PMKVY 3.0 :-
12.1 The scheme will be aligned with Common Cost Norms and National Skill Qualification
Framework (NSQF). The amendment in these will be effective after approval from Steering
Committee constituted under the scheme. 12.2 Payment to Training Providers will be broken
into tranches namely 30% on commencement of training batches, 40% on successful
certification and 30% on placement verification subject to revisions by Common Cost Norms
committee. Other incentives like boarding & lodging, post-placement support, conveyance
and other support will be as per Common Cost Norms.
12.3 A candidate may enroll not more than twice for training under PMKVY in the same sector
(the second time to be for a higher NSQF aligned job role only), or, for a fresh training of a
different course in the scheme, provided there is a six month gap between the certification
date of the first course and batch start date of the subsequent course. The payout against
such candidates (which include payouts to candidates, PIAs and SSCs) shall only be given
for enrolment, for a maximum of two job roles. 12.4 A special research cell shall be created at NSDC
for continuous matching of demand and supply and strengthening the Aatmanirbhar Skilled
Employee-Employer Mapping (ASEEM) portal. 12.5 SSCs or other suitable institutions shall be
encouraged to create Centres of Excellence (CoE) which shall act as the master training and
resource centre for that sector. The plan is to setup at least one CoE for each sector.
12.6 Further, a phase-wise introduction of vocational courses in schools shall be initiated.
Branding is an important aspect of communicating the scheme. All the Training
Centres need to brand their respective centres with collaterals for promotional activities in
accordance with these Guidelines. The Training Centres shall also promote activities conducted
at their centres on various social media platforms. The Branding and Communications
Guidelines of the scheme shall be issued separately.

State component of the scheme. Broadly, there are three stages of the training, i.e. pretraining (centre accreditation, target allocation,candidate registration and enrolment), training and post-training (placement, placement
tracking). Since each of these activities would require support from multiple stakeholders, the
IT architecture would be designed to support the scheme.
Administrative Structure of the Scheme :-
Steering Committee: A Steering Committee shall be constituted by MSDE, at the apex
level, for broad policy direction, framing operational Guidelines, and dynamic fixation
of targets with corresponding reallocation of funds between CSCM and CSSM and between
STT, RPL and Special Projects beyond the powers of the Executive Committee,
periodic review, monitoring and mid-course correction.
9.2 Executive Committee: An Executive Committee shall be constituted for
overseeing the regular functioning of the scheme, recommending to
