The Union Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) on December 19, 2018, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Maruti Suzuki India Ltd for training rural youth for skill development under the flagship Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY)
The Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) is the flagship placement linked skill-training scheme of the Ministry of Rural Development.
1. The mission of the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana is to ensure rural poor youth are skilled in market-relevant trades and job-relevant competencies.
2. One of the ways in which DDU-GKY aims to achieve this is through the “Champion Employers” policy.
3. The Champion Employers are the industry leaders who have the potential to provide training and captive employment to the DDU-GKY candidates.
6. The policy seeks a strategic alignment of objectives of DDU-GKY with the HR strategy of organisations, which have a large potential to absorb trained manpower.
