Govt launches SWADES to conduct skill mapping of citizens returning under VBM

A new initiative called ‘SWADES’ has been launched by the central government for conducting skill mapping exercises of the citizens who have returned under the Vande Bharat Mission.

Key Points:

  • The initiative has been launched by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, in partnership with the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
  • The objective of the initiative is the creation of a database of qualified citizens on the basis of their skill sets and experience which will assist them in tapping into and fulfilling the demand of foreign and Indian companies.
  • The information that will be collected will be shared with the companies for providing suitable placement opportunities to individuals in the country.
  • The citizens who return to India will be required to fill up an online SWADES Skills Card.
  • The Ministry of Civil Aviation has directed Air India and Air Indian Express to make in-flight announcements in flights that are operating flights under the Vande Bharat Mission.
  • The programme is expected to help in reducing the demand-supply gap in the job market.
