State Running Schemes


UPSDM has been established to make the youth employable by providing free vocational training. It is the first effort of its kind to run five Central Government & one state Government skill development schemes in integrated & uniformly standardized way. Privilege has been given to weaker sections of society i.e. scheduled caste, minority, women & BPL candidates etc. The candidate must be the resident of Uttar Pradesh and should have age falling in 14- 35 years age group (for BOCW scheme, upper limit is extended to 50 years). However, an overall coverage of 20% candidates from minorities and 30% women candidates is mandated, taken all the schemes together. Besides this a State skill Development Fund (a Top-up fund) is created to meet out the additional expenses needed in order to ensure integration. Following the common minimum norms adopted by mission 70% of the successfully certified candidates will be the minimum target for placement, out of which wage employment should be not less than 50% in any case.
