Employment Generation and Marketing Mission (EGMM), Department of Rural Development, Govt. of AP works in a focused manner to provide employment/ employability for the rural youth. These are the economically and socially underprivileged rural poor from remote areas.
The Executive Committee of the Mission consists of Hon’ble Minister, Rural Development, senior government officers and the private sector. EGMM is driven by a private sector cell, which evolves strategy with an eye on the market. Implementation of the program is done with the large government machinery headed by Collectors, Project Directors, District Rural Development Agency (DRDAs) and PO, Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDAs) in all 22 districts. The EGMM works in scale in public-private partnership mode with the main stakeholders being the government, private sector, and the women self help groups. The entire approach is a bottom-up approach, tailored to move the rural poor from the unorganized to the organized labor market.
Ministry of MSME has initiated skill development mandate under a new scheme named as the Assistance to Training Institutions (ATI). This Scheme is for providing financial assistance for the establishment of new institutions (EDIs), strengthening the infrastructure of the existing EDIs and for supporting entrepreneurship and skill development activities.
To keep track of these programmes and to assist the budding entrepreneurs who attend the ni-msme entrepreneur programmes, this web based system, MSME Training Tracking System (MTTS) is introduced.
Using this system, ATI’s can manage all the programmes alloted to them through this scheme and users can use the below links to give feedback to nimsme and to check the success stories of the trainees of this scheme.
National Institute of Micro Small Medium Entrepreneur
� ni-msme was originally set up as Central Industrial Extension Training Institute (CIETI) in New Delhi in 1960 as a Department under the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Government of India. It was decided to keep it free from the tardy and impeding administrative controls and procedures, so that the Institute can play a pivotal role in the promotion of small enterprise. Therefore the Institute was shifted to Hyderabad in 1962, and was renamed as Small Industry Extension Training (SIET) Institute. SIET, as it was fondly known for over two decades later, is managed by Governing Council, appointed by the Government of India. The Founder-Chairman of SIET is Dr P.C. Alexander, the then Development Commissioner (Small Scale Industries).

National Skill Development Agency
The National Skill Development Agency (NSDA), an autonomous body, (registered as a Society under the Society’s Registration Act 1860) was created with the mandate to co-ordinate and harmonise the skill development activities in the country, is part of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE).
Being home to more than a billion people and with nearly half the population below 25 years of age, India enjoys a distinct demographic dividend, which when leveraged fully has the potential to transform the country into an economic super power. However, for this the country’s largely unskilled population needs to be adequately skilled to improve their productivity and match global quality standards. Having envisaged this tremendous challenge facing the country, late Prof. C.K. Prahlad articulated in his paper “India @ 75” that India would need 500mn skilled workers by 2022.
This ambitious goal requires an unprecedented effort and a high level of collaboration between public and private sector entities. Collectively we need to address this challenge and take concrete, bold steps towards creating large scale employment linked skills training opportunities for the youth of our country.
In order to bring about large scale transformational changes to the skilling landscape of the country, Government of India created the National Council on Skill Development (NCSD) under the leadership of the Hon’ble Prime Minister. The Advisor to Prime Minister’s (APM) Office, National Council on Skill Development, established to support this noble initiative, was bestowed with the responsibility of developing a coherent, focused and targeted approach towards skills development and laying a road map for its successful implementation. In the last couple of years the APM Office has played an instrumental role in bringing about structural policy interventions to transform the way skill development is conceived and delivered in the country. The APM office has been working with various central ministries, state governments, the Planning Commission, and other government & non-government bodies. By working with a host of stakeholders including, Government, NGOs, training providers, industry associations, the APM office has aimed to evolve an outcome based solution for improving the skill development eco-system in the country. It has recommended changes to the Apprenticeship Act, has proposed introduction of credit funding for skills training, service tax exemption for skills development projects, among others.
While a lot has been achieved in the past few years, the Government is continuing its efforts to streamline the process of skill development. Recently the Government of India took the decision to create a central body called the National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) by subsuming three erstwhile bodies that includes NCSD, APM Office, and the National Skill Development Coordination Board (NSDCB). The NSDA is expected to provide the much needed single point focus to ensure that skilling quality and standards meet sector specific requirements benchmarked to international standards. Such an initiative will boost employability of youth in India, and in turn help bridge the social, regional, gender and economic divide.
Although we have taken the right step towards harmonizing the skill development activities across the country, this is only the beginning of a journey and new opportunities and challenges will continue to emerge as we move ahead in this space. However, our single point of focus would continue to be to create employment linked skills training programs for the youth of the nation.
All sectors will benefit by skill development which will enable value addition of products and services. I call upon all associated stakeholders across governments, industry, social development sector to work together to facilitate the development of an environment, conducive to inclusive growth and development. Collectively we can achieve our goal of making India’s people its competitive differentiator.
