Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate 511 skill development centers in rural Maharashtra named after the late Bharatiya Janata Party leader, Pramod Mahajan. Through video conferencing, the launch aims to provide employment opportunities to the rural youth across 34 districts in Maharashtra. These centers will offer training programs in various sectors, helping approximately 100 young individuals per center to learn at least two vocational courses.
The training is conducted in collaboration with industry partners and agencies affiliated with the National Skill Development Council. This initiative is expected to enhance the region’s workforce by equipping them with valuable skills, fostering development and creating a more skilled workforce for the future. Pramod Mahajan, a prominent leader of the BJP, passed away in 2006 at the age of 56.
