(a) and (b) With the implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), 2015-16, Government has revamped and modified its guidelines to make it more effective, transparent and beneficiary oriented. The modified PMKVY (2016-20) enables a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training for securing employment and a better livelihood under three key components namely; Fresh Short Term Training, Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and special project.The objective of this Scheme is to encourage and promote Skill Development by aligning itself with the Common Norms in terms of ensuring standardization and consistency in the structure of skill training across India. In order to ensure uniformity and standardization under the vibrant skill ecosystem, the scheme encapsulates salient features namely costing based on Common Norms and NSQF based quality assurance framework as notified by the Ministry including market relevant training programmes, curriculum alignment, national certification, employable skills, placements, etc. 40 hours entrepreneurship and soft skill module have been incorporated in PMKVY2.0 to promote entrepreneurship and other concepts such as digital literacy, personality development, soft skill, etc. 

To ensure wide and equitable coverage, the scheme has special provisions for residential training for People with Disability (PWD), North Eastern Region (NER), J&K region and Left Wing Extremism (LWE) affected areas.

In order to enhance transparency and build accountability, changes in the area of center validation, job roles, trainee handbooks, certificate, attendance and finance have been incorporated. Various IT measures such as Direct Benefit Transfer for direct disbursement of reward money, Aadhaar linkage of trainers and trainees for better monitoring, Biometric attendance of candidate for checking false enrolment of candidates etc have been ensured. Scheme encourages the standalone TCs to voluntary disclose the features and achievements of their training programmes, such as TC infrastructure, number of trainees trained, passed, certi?ed, placed, and their placement details, on social media (Facebook and Twitter) on periodical basis as a part of the Performance Standards Metrics. The grading points are allocated on the basis of achievements of such parameters and further the level of targets is linked to achievements of grades. This scheme has provisions for high standard monitoring of TCs/TPs.

(c) As on date, 40 Sector Skill Council (SSCs) covering high priority sectors have been formed. Out of them, Domestic Workers Sector Skill Council was the last one to be formed on 15th February 2016.
