State Missions

Why State Missions are critical to implementation of ASDP?
The last eight years of experience in implementing multi-State projects, and the experiences of initiatives taken by certain State Governments, have shown that their involvement in ASDP is critical to the success of the Programme.
 
At present, there has not been significant involvement of State Governments in ASDP. This has clear implications for mobilisation of target youth, scalability, accountability of private partners, sensitiveness to skill demand and supply dynamics etc. It is also seen that where the State Governments have their own skill development programmes with a dedicated machinery that does tracking and monitoring of the training as well as placement and retention of candidates, there has been better quality assurance regarding both the training and retention after placement. These States are in a better position to identify deserving poor candidates, assess local skill gaps, propose suitable skilling programmes, monitor training and placement and muster support for the trainees in the initial stages.
 
Under National Skill Development Mission, the Ministry of Rural Development’s strategy for the 12th Five Year Plan is to move from direct implementation to further build capacities of State Governments for implementation of the Programme and to coordinate at Central level to improve the skilling delivery process. For this purpose, States will be required to prepare Annual Action Plans (AAPs) for Skill Development and Placement as a separate component of their overall NRLM AAP. In due course, the AAPs would be prepared within the framework of a Perspective Plan. Once the AAP has been approved by MoRD, specific project implementation (through Project Implementation Agencies - PIAs) and monitoring would be effected by the States.
 
The Ministry will actively partner with all the States to devolve powers and responsibilities according to the capacity built in the States. At present, the capacities to implement this Programme are not uniform across the States. Availability of an implementation mechanism at State, district and sub district levels will enable the States to engage with this challenge in a structured and effective way. The States with dedicated implementation mechanisms in place can immediately formulate their AAPs in consonance with these guidelines. Other States would need to meet the readiness conditions through positioning of the requisite dedicated human resource before graduating to AAP formulation. Till then the projects will be sanctioned in accordance with the guidelines for Single State Projects (SSPs), with PIAs proposing state-specific projects.
 
What support is available to states who want to graduate to AAP States?

There is dedicated assistance available at national level to support states who would like to develop capacity to become AAP states. MoRD, through dedicated mission management team will support government in developing such capacity.
 
Workshops and training sessions will be provided to States to help them meet readiness conditions as soon as the state skills team has been recruited. These workshops will cover, inter alia:
