There are different departments apart from Jharkhand skill development mission society (JSDMS) in Jharkhand that are implementing skill development activities in the state. Government of Jharkhand has bestowed these departments to train 2 million youth in five years, 2017-2022. Each department is working under the ambit of NSQF/MSME/NCVT and likewise qualification frameworks. At present the departments are working independently, though the target for the state is high but there is no mechanism to monitor the progress of all the departments in a single platform.
