One of the major problems of India is increasing rate of unemployment. Unemployment rate is higher in rural areas causing migration from villages to cities. Therefore, it is essential to generate livelihood opportunities in rural areas and make village self-sufficient. KVSS is giving special attention to this sector. KVSS promotes home/cottage/micro enterprises in rural areas. Suitable candidates are identified on the basis of their knowledge, interest and socio-economic condition and then categorized for various skill development programmes. They are imparted training to enhance their skills to be able to run their economic initiatives successfully.
