    Based on the challenges faced in implementing earlier phases of PMKVY and the learnings gathered, the next phase of PMKVY, i.e., PMKVY 4.0 under the umbrella scheme of the “Skill India Programme” is being implemented between FY 2022-2026.

    PMKVY 4.0 is being realigned with a core focus on making the existing skill ecosystem more flexible, swift, and geared to meet the current challenges and emerging needs through process simplification.

    In accordance with the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship in the current session 2023-24, 350 KVs have been onboarded as skill hubs for providing Skill training to School/College dropouts, out of education and unemployed youth and for internal candidates of KVs in the age group 15-45 years under PMKVY 4.0 scheme.

    KVs have opted for skill courses in IT-ITES, Healthcare, Beauty and Wellness, Agriculture, Sports, Media and Entertainment, Apparels, Electronics, Management, etc. A good number of candidates are registered and the courses are in progress.
