Government of Chhattisgarh is also conscious of the need to expand residential training facilities to secure the exercise of this right by those living in remote and under -served areas. A unique initiative in the form of a Livelihood College was successfully piloted in Dantewada district in South Bastar. Youth in this predominantly tribal district and backward district are being provided training in a range of skills since 2011. This district-level initiative has now been replicated in other districts of the state.
To place the Livelihood College initiative on a robust foundation through strong employment linkage, and to create a network of such Livelihood Colleges to provide a range of livelihood opportunities for youth from across the State, including in partnership with the private sector, the State Government has established the State Project Livelihood College Society (hereinafter referred to as SPLCS). Government of India has supported the initiative through a one-time Additional Central Assistance for meeting infrastructure costs, while recurring costs are being borne by the State. The training costs are being met from the Skill Development Initiative Scheme of the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment and the State’s unique skill development convergence scheme, Mukhya Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (MMKVY), in which skill development schemes and funds from Government departments are being converged on the pattern of the Skill Development Initiative Scheme.
State Project Livelihood College Society invites proposals from firms having a proven track record in imparting skill development training, for providing training to the youth of Chhattisgarh in Livelihood Colleges. Interested firms who meet the qualification criteria may furnish their Expression of Interest Proposal will all the necessary documents (self attested) in sealed cover along with the
