This research paper has analyzed the Ministry of Rural Development’s (MoRD, Government of India) training cum placement of youths through wage employment under the banner of the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) which was launched on 25th September 2014. It is a part of the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana–National Rural Livelihood Mission (DAY-NRLM). The prime objective of DDU-GKY is to provide wage employment to the trained rural youths who mainly hail from Below Poverty Line (BPL) families and age may be in between 15 and 35 years. The training cum placements are run by different agencies known as Project Implementing Agencies (PIAs) who conduct training vis-a-vis placement; training fund is provided by DDU-GKY. To get an idea about the training programme conducted by DDU-GKY, a study was carried out in the first week of August 2017 in Amritsar district of Punjab. In the district Safeducate Learning Private Limited was one of the PIAs. This PIA was running a training Centre at Majitha block at Sahid Captain Amar Singh Government Secondary School from December 2016 which is discussed here.
