In order to link skills developed into actual productive use, there is a requirement that the demand made by the industries and supply of labour-force should be match for the proper implementation of all types of skill development initiatives of the Government and its partner agencies. For bridging this gap, multiple strategic initiatives have been taken by government of India such as Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras, Pradhan Mantri Yuva Yojana, Skills Acquisition and Knowledge Awareness for Livelihood Promotion (SANKALP) and Skill Strengthening for Industrial Value Enhancement (STRIVE) etc for Skills and knowledge development which is the driving forces behind the financial growth and community development of a country. Therefore, the mission of a country to enjoy a massive “demographic dividend” will involve both public and private sectors in a symbiotic relationship as public sector initiatives to restore, reform and expand existing infrastructure will be required involvement of private sector for management and running of Skill Development Programmes, ending with placement of competent youth in industry.
