New Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Created by the PM

A new era has begun as Mr. Modi took oath as the 15th PM Modi on 27th and Entrepreneurship. This ministry is made up to recognise the importance of skill development in India. MP from the Lakhimpur constituency of Assam, Sarbananda Sonowal was made the Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship with independent charges for itself.

The immediate mandate of this ministry is to ensure that the country meet its target of skilling and up skilling 500 million Indians by 2022. On the other hand they were to also ensure that they create an ecosystem that removes bottlenecks and hence forth make business easier and encourage entrepreneurship. As per my knowledge is concerned this is the first time that a separate ministry for skill development has been created. Previously this task of skill development and entrepreneurship was taken up by various departments and agencies in the country. Some of them are National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) which was responsible for skill development and then there was The Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) which involved and worked around entrepreneurship. Sam Pitroda the advisor of Prime Minister on Public information infrastructure and innovation was involved in this major step for entrepreneurship development. Before this in the year 2010 the Union government launched the National Skill Development Mission that had three institutions National Council on Skill development that was responsible for policy direction and review of spectrum, then there was National Skill Development Coordination Board which was under the chairmanship of Chairman Planning Commission and was for enumerating strategies to implement the decisions of PM’s council and the NSDC was a non-profit company and that the corporation were funded by the trust. NPSD is now approved by the Union Government and has set a huge target of skilling 500 million people by the end of 2022. of May 2014 he created a new ministry of Skill development
