We are living in interesting times. We have the world's largest young population and yet employers are constantly searching for the "right talent". The same is true for all over the world. To add to it, most of the jobs from blue to white collar have undergone drastic transformation and technology infusion leading to bigger gap. HIMAYAT is essentially an 'urdu' word which means "Support", therefore HIMAYAT and its training partners are the bridge between you and the need of the hour.

Fund Flow Mechanism

As per the Guidelines of DDU-GKY, PIA's are paid in 4 instalments of 25% each of the total cost of the project sanctioned. DDU-GKY has empowered States/UTs who have built their capacities to plan, sanction and implement training projects as Action Plan States. In these states/UTs, the centre transfers the funds in 2 equal instalments of 50% each to the State Rural Livelihoods Mission (SRLM) or State Skill Mission (SSM), who in turn make the payment to the PIAs in the same instalment plan as above. In other States/UTs, where such capacity is still being developed, the National unit of the Ministry directly approves and sanctions projects and makes all payments in the above instalment plan. All processes of investment decisions, programme management and monitoring tasks are completed by Central Technical Support Agencies (CTSAs) on behalf of the Ministry of Rural Development. The CTSAs are independent entities with adequate resources and past experiences of managing large skilling projects in rural India. At present, National Institute of Rural Development & Panchayati Raj (NIRD & PR) and NABARD Consultancy (NABCONS) serve as our Central Technical Support Agencies.
