Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday announced reforms for Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS), in a bid to boost skill training and entrepreneurship in the remotest corners of the country.

“The emergence of the rural industry as an important growth engine for the economy makes it an imperative for us to stress on skilling our youth in remote districts of the country,” Pradhan said while making the announcement here on Thursday.

JSSs can play an important role in bridging information asymmetry between skill training and market opportunities, thereby giving an impetus to the creation of a workforce equipped with technology skills in areas such as health and wellness, tourism, e-commerce, retail and trade, he added. Formerly under the Ministry of Human Resources Development, JSS was transferred to the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship last year.
