    Synopsis

    South zone states of India had the lowest enrollment for the industry relevant skill development courses in the PMKVY 3.0 programme. Out of the total enrolled candidates, only about 50 per cent of the candidates were offered certification of completion in India. While in the South zone about 57 per cent of the candidates were certified.

    For the industry relevant government certified Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) skill based certification, a total of 7,94,911 candidates were enrolled over the nation while only 13.76 per cent of them were from the southern states, which was the lowest after the Union Territories. For logistical reasons and ease of analysis, we have categorised Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Goa as the southern zone.

    PMKVY has had multiple versions till date. Version 1.0 was held in 2015-16, Version 2.0 between 2016-2020 and Version 3.0 in 2020-21. In all the parameters such as enrollment, certified and placed candidates, PMKVY 2.0 saw the highest number of candidates as the duration was of four years, while the other versions were of only one year.

    Careers360 brings together the number of enrolled, certified and placed candidates in the three versions of PMKVY till date. The data available is from 2021 so a few candidates, about 1.3 per cent of the total enrolled, were still undergoing training for the 2020-21 session. For logistical reasons, we divided the analysis into central, east, north, south and west zones, and Union Territories separately
