Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) has launched its flagship scheme Pradhan Mantri Yuva Udyamita Vikas Abhiyaan (PM-YUVA) on 9th November, 2016 to impart entrepreneurship education and training. 

Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises is already implementing Trade Related Entrepreneurship Development Assistance Development (TREAD) Scheme which envisages economic empowerment of women. 

Government has also implemented the National Career Service having a portal for online registration and posting of jobs for job-seekers including single earning mothers.
