Bhubaneswar:11/8/23: Odisha Cabinet on Friday approved the Nutan Unnata Abhilash (NUA) Odisha Scheme with an outlay of Rs 385 crore to skill one lakh youth every year in the state during the next three years.

To be implemented across the 30 Districts in the State, skilling, reskilling, and upskilling opportunities will be provided through skilling institutions of the SD & TE Department (ITI, Polytechnic, etc.), Govt Skilling Institutions, Educational Institutions, Clusters (MSME, Agriculture, Craft, etc).

Credible Program Implementing Agencies comprising reputed industries and training providers, industry associations, etc will be onboarded to deliver the skilling programmes through an enabling policy framework based on differential and incentive-based approach.

The establishment of state-of-the-art training centres, well-equipped labs, and a strong skilling ecosystem will further facilitate strengthening the Skilled-in-Odisha brand.

As envisaged in the Budget 2023-24, NUA Odisha reflects the commitment of the Government to ensure the transformation of human lives through Skilling leading to economic empowerment, an official release stated.
