About STAR Scheme
The Finance Minister in his Budget Speech of 2013 proposed a scheme to encourage skill development for youth by providing monetary rewards for successful completion of approved training programs. The objective of this Scheme is to encourage skill development for youth by providing monetary rewards for successful completion of approved training programs. Specifically, the Scheme aims to:
- Encourage standardization in the certification process and initiate a process of creating a registry of skills; and
- Increase productivity of the existing workforce and align the training and certification to the needs of the country.
- Provide Monetary Awards for Skill Certification to boost employability and productivity of youth by incentivizing them for skill trainings
- Reward candidates undergoing skill training by authorized institutions at an average monetary reward of Rs. 10,000 (Rupees Ten Thousand) per candidate.
- Benefit 10 lakh youth at an approximate total cost of Rs.1,000 Crores.
