About  PKVY by Prime Minister:

   “Prime Minister talked about the tremendous contributions that Pravasi Bharatiyas make to the progress and development of India, to the progress and development of their societies where they are living and working…their ‘karmbhoomi’, but India has always been their ‘marnbhoomi’.

“The government will launch skill development program, Pravasi Kaushal Vikas Yojna for Indian youth who seek employment overseas. I would again encourage all PIO Card holders to convert their PIO Cards to OCI Cards,” he added.

  PKVY   Training : 

As part of collaboration, potential emigrant workers may avail work related skill training under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) or any other similar Government skill development program, which would take place at transnational standards. MSDE through NSDC proposes to establish customised International Skill Centres to operationalise this initiative.

MEA’s role would be to support Pre-Departure Orientation Training (PDOT), which will include language and soft skills training modules. Training offered will also be backed by an internationally recognised assessment and certification system.
