New Delhi: Mr Narendra Modi launched National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS) during his recent visit to Kanpur. The scheme has an outlay of Rs 10,000 crore and it involves incentivizing employers in sharing 25% of total cost of stipend paid to the apprentices.

It is for the first time Govt. of India has come forward to incentivize the employers to participate pro-actively in apprenticeship training. On this occasion, cheques were distributed by Mr Narendra Modi for 25% share to five establishments like HAL Bangalore, BHEL Delhi, GSRTC, Gujarat, APSRTC, Andhra Pradesh and Tata Motors, Lucknow.

As a sequel to this recognition, it is expected that more and more establishments from MSMEs, Private SPSUs, CPSUs and Govt sector will come forward to engage apprentices and support Prime Minister’s vision of Skill India.
