About DDU-GKY

DeenDayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) aims to skill rural youth who are poor and provide them with jobs having regular monthly wages or above the minimum wages. DDU-GKY is the skilling and placement initiative of the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India that seeks to promote rural livelihoods

The Vision of DDU-GKY is to "Transform rural poor youth into an economically independent and globally relevant workforce". It aims to target youth, in the age group of 15–35 years.

As a part of the Skill India campaign, it plays an instrumental role in supporting the social and economic programs of the government like the Make In India, Digital India, Smart Cities and Start-Up India, Stand-Up India campaigns. Over 180 million or 69% of the country’s youth population between the ages of 18 and 34 years, live in its rural areas. Of these, the bottom of the pyramid youth from poor families with no or marginal employment number about 55 million.

DDU-GKY takes pride in its partners and their ability to add value. Innovation from partner is encouraged to build scale and capacity…its unique implementation structure involves partners, who are by nature, committed to changing lives and experts in their areas,they form a part of the Skilling Ecosystem integrated by DDU-GKY. Partners are supported through investment, capacity building, strategies for retention, linkages to international placement and technology support for training purposes.

The Department of Computer Science, Periyar university has obtained placement linked training of DDU-GKY project for 2.66 crores from TamilnaduState Rural Livelihood Mission(TNSRLM) to train 350 rural youths, an initiation into INDUSTRY 4.0 - New Age Skills on ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCEand UI/UX which will be a boon to the youth in the state.

The Department of Computer Science,Periyar University is also actively involved in DDUGKY mission and will be furthering this empowerment program which will be very useful for the youth of this country where now the Prime Minister with his ambitious skill India program wants to realize the dream of skilling the youth.

Periyar University’sobjective is to specifically train them in the sunrise technology and enable them to get good job opportunities in the industry.

Periyar University also have a specific objective of identifying youth in the ethnic minority group, in the racial minority groups, people who belong to the downtrodden, people who belong to the oppressed community and people who don't have a voice for negotiating space in the society. People from the underprivileged section will be continually deprived of this technology if only they are not considered for active financial support and assistance. TNSRLM’s gesture of providing financial assistance to take this program will go a long way into developing not only individuals but also communities at large.

Periyar Universityextend its sincere thanks to TNSRLM for having sanctioned DDU-GKY project to The Department of Computer Science,Periyar Universityand look forward TNSRLM’s continued support and fullest cooperation for successful implementation of the DDU-GKY Periyar University(TN67D2020 Periyar Univ 108) Project
