The road to atmanirbhar bharat travels through atmanirbhar villages and we need to create new opportunities for employment and entrepreneurship locally, said Minister of State, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Electronics and IT, Rajeev Chandrasekhar. 

Expressing his satisfaction with the pilot project, the minister affirmed that the pilot programme offers us a launch pad for replicating its success in other districts across the nation. 

It shall empower the tribal youth by making opportunities available - locally thereby reducing the pull and push for migration. It shall trigger economic activities at the local level in the districts which is consistent with the new economic outlook of the government which lays emphasis on self-reliance or atmanirbharta, he added.

Chandrasekhar said that the Covid pandemic has led to disruptions in traditional supply chains offering huge opportunities to India and Indians. 

The world is now looking for a trusted partner. As the world now looks toward India, we need to skill our youth to emerge as a global skills bub.  

The pilot project, under the Sansadiya Sankul Pariyojana, was launched on 13 May 2022 for training about 250 beneficiaries of 17 clusters of 17 districts selected from 6 states of India – Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Odisha.
