Skill Development

It is estimated that in India, there will be a shortage of around 40 million skilled labourers in the construction sector by 2020, 400,000 for tower erection and 5 million in the welding sector. On the supply side, the number of unemployed youth is rising especially in rural and peri-urban areas. Many of these are either school dropouts or do not have resources to pursue higher education. Hence, the objective of Skill Development programme is to support the National Skill Development Initiative of the Central Government in creating opportunities for youth from under-privileged households and equipping them with skills to cater the industry requirements.


TPCDT further envisages training and provision of employable skills and aims to provide the training to over 60,000 people by 2018 through this programme.

  • 2,075 candidates have been trained of which 90 percent of them have been employed.
  • 60 youth have become entrepreneurs under entrepreneur development programme.
