About YUVA program:Delhi Police has tied up with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) for providing job linked skill training for the selected youth in a collective manner.
National Skill Development Corporation will be providing skill training to the youth under ‘Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna’ (PMKVY) and CII will provide job linked training through its Sector Skill Councils which are connected to industry and thereby provide job guarantee.
A detailed exercise was conducted in all 13 districts of Delhi Police to select the youth in the age of 17-25 years for this training belonging to categories such as School dropouts, Juvenile offenders, Victims of crimes and families in dire state due to incarceration of the bread earner of the family, mostly from the underprivileged colonies.
2,269 candidates have been so far selected to be trained by 36 training partners in 45 skills in the next three months. Thirty-two police station premises have been identified where Skill Development Centers are proposed to be opened at the earliest.
Reason behind the programme:As per a recent study, it is found that 90 per cent of the street crimes are done by first-timers. The study has also found that there has been a 45 per cent increase in the number of snatchers arrested this year as compared to last year. Prevention of street crimes and snatching is the prime reason behind starting the programme
The Police should engage with the youth who are prone to drug addiction and other crimes. Efforts are being taken that about 70-80% youth under this project get employment.
The ‘YUVA’ initiative by Delhi Police aims to connect with youth by upgrading their skill as per their competencies. It will help them to get a useful employment under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna under the Ministry of Skill Development.
The youth coming for skill training in a police station building will be a huge step in building up their confidence and faith in police organization and will go a long way in building a positive image of police in the long run.
PMKVY:Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is the flagship scheme of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE).
The objective of this Skill Certification Scheme is to enable a large number of youth of our country to take up industry-oriented skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood. Individuals with prior learning experience or skills will also be assessed and certified under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
Under this Scheme, fees of training, assessment and skill development are completely funded by the Government.
