First Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra for 'Skilling in Smart Cities' launched in New Delhi
India's first Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra for Skilling in Smart Cities was launched under Skill India Mission in collaboration with New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), New Delhi, by the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, stated a release.

At the launch function Singh said, "India which has the privilege of being a young nation, would gain from this demographic dividend to become a superpower and be amongst the top three counties in the world by 2030. The key to reach this milestone is by investing in our youth and making them skilled."

He added, "A skilled person gets respect, recognition and honour due to his hard work. I strongly believe that these skill development centres would aspire youth to take up vocational training to make themselves self-reliant."

The main object is to provide skill training for unemployed youth through its short-term training (STT) module and contribute to the capacity building of municipal employees through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) program.

President of NDMC Naresh Kumar said, "National Skill Mission will prove to be a milestone for the developed India. NDMC supports inclusive development by introducing best practices in skilling and is determined to leave no stone unturned to achieve the mission."

Here I would like to quote Narayanan Vaidyanathan, senior subject manager at ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), who had once written: "Few policy areas seem to grab the imagination of the modern global citizen than the notion of a 'smart' city...Policy-makers worldwide need to appreciate the importance of investing in professional skills and training which will enable its workforce to adapt and thrive in the digital era. If nothing else, the smart city of the future will need smart leaders."
