Retired army personnel to become entrepreneurs

The government wanted to create model centres of training across the country, targeting labourers, tribals, farmers and domestic help among others.

The government is planning to use thousands of Army personnel retiring every year (at a relatively young age) as trainers and entrepreneurs, informed the Lok Sabha.

“Our ministry would also propose the "Right to Skill" on the lines of a similar provision in Chhattisgarh under which the state government was obliged to train people in skills they wanted,” said Skill Development Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy.

On the lack of skill trainers, Rudy averred that over 50,000 non-commissioned officials retired from the Army after putting in 20 years of service and his ministry was working to use their experience and skill.

"We are trying to partner with the Ministry of Defence. The government wanted to tap these personnel to see if they can come back as trainers or entrepreneurs,” added he.

Rudy also said that it would take some time before his department completed assessing various skills available across the country and their need in various states.

"We are creating a map connecting all the states. It will take a while. In six months or a year, we will have a perfect portal," he said.
