In addition to the advanced-level courses in specific areas like food processing, agricultural production, organic farming and mechanical work, this online course will have general certifications as well. In addition to the certificate, through this course participants will have exposure visits and bank linkages for loans to help turn their ideas into action.
With this, the administration aims to introduce entrepreneurial skills to the youth of the state at an early stage thereby laying the foundation of self-reliance in the formative years. Meanwhile, the MSME department has also decided to increase the seats under Mati Kala Board and Vishwakarma Shram Samman Scheme, two-fold.
