The government has a vision that by 2020, everything will be digitalized in India. Being digital definitely means a lot for a nation. It is a mark of a development for a nation, and can make a nation more progressive. Apart from this, digitalization has got lot of benefits for the citizens. It will facilitate lot of ease for the citizens, where they can do their task at their own place in their own time. This will also mean that e-governance will be implemented. This will mean as a citizen you can pay your property tax, road tax, bills, fees everything online by sitting at your home. Just a click on your computer or a tap on your mobile device, you are done. Indeed, this will be quite a development. This is what government visions through “Digital India”.
Definitely, we understand the benefits that will be brought by the digital India vision. However, these benefits can be availed by the citizens only if they are computer literate. Hence, our government aims to develop the computer skill as well, as part of digital India. As a result, the government has come up with some key schemes. These schemes aim to develop franchisees as part of computer saksharta mission franchise. This will help in developing a large number of franchisees, that will benefit millions of people.
PMKVY is one of the govt schemes for computer education. One can acquire a franchisee of a computer institute under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), which is a flagship of Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE). By taking franchisee under the scheme, one can get govt computer education franchise. PMKVY is a skill certification scheme for skill in India. The objective of this training is to provide skill training to Indian youth.
A big question which might come to our mind is, how to open a computer institute franchisee under this scheme? If you are thinking to open a computer institute under PMKVY is a difficult task, then you are completely wrong. Or, if you are thinking the prerequisites for opening a franchise might require a huge investment, you are wrong in that case as well. One can open a computer institute at ease, without any complications. The requirements are pretty normal in this case. A franchise owner can start with an area of 300 square feet, and a minimum investment of Rs.10000. This means one can start a franchise in a small room which can accommodate 4-5 people. Yes, it is that easy. One can start only with four computers. The key is the franchise owner should have proper knowledge on computers, and prior experience in this field. The best part is, there are no hidden charges or franchise fees. There are no limitations on the number of courses as well.
Now you must be thinking, how to register a computer institute franchisee under this scheme. That is again, as easy as opening the franchise. One needs to fill the form, and send it to the computer institute that is part of this scheme. One such institute is Sarva Computer Saksharta Mission (SCSM). Once the computer institute receives the registration form, they share all the details on email. Post this document collection takes place, that includes centre validation form, centre photos, ID proof, address proof, centre validation fee etc. These documents are submitted to the designated authorities by the institute. Post this inspection is done, and final approval is given.
