The Union Minister of State for Electronics and IT, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, and Jal Shakti, Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, revealed that nearly 4 lakh young Indians in Kerala will receive training in Future Skills over the next three years through the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) 4.0 initiative.

This program focuses on developing skills needed for the future. It includes training in areas like Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing),
AI – Data Quality Analysis, Drone Manufacturing and Assembly, and Electronic Hardware Assembly, among others.

The Minister said, “Skills, particularly future skills, have the potential to expand opportunities for young Indians. The future skills program was devised to provide opportunities to all. As a Malayali, it is disheartening to witness the lack of opportunities in Kerala — the absence of factories, tech hubs, and investments.”

“However, we will ensure that there are opportunities for all, to ensure that there are more skills and newer ways to earn for all”, the Minister added.

Sandip Patel, Managing Director, IBM India & South Asia said, “I have always believed that technology is an enabler and it is an equaliser. This whole focus on skill development has put together is very critical to India today.”

“Skill will make the youth a lot more capable and with our demographic dividend we can truly make India a net exporter of talent to the world”, Sandip Patel added.

Sandip Patel further said, “As IBM we are very committed to Kerala, what we are finding is that the state has tremendous skill potential that we are continuing to grow and build out.”

Hitesh Garg, Vice President and India country manager at NXP said, “We have seen in the past how students with Masters and even PhDs never got good opportunities.”

“However, today we have seen how people are getting opportunities through these skilling and training programs this is intelligent thinking”, Hitesh Garg added.
