Vidya to start free courses under PMKVY scheme
The College has initiated steps to start courses under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKY) scheme of Govt of India implemented through the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE). The objective of the Scheme is to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood. The College plans to start the following courses under the scheme:
- Electrician (Domestic)
- LED Light Repair Technician
- Domestic IT Help Desk Attender

The minimum qualifications for joining these courses vary with the course. The sanctioned intake for each of these courses is 25 students.

The sanctioned seats for the remaining courses are also expected to be filled shortly.
