Age Limit for Bihar Kushal Yuva Program

  • The age limit for the general category has been kept from 15 to 25 years.
  • The age limit for the SC/ST category has been kept 15 to 30 years.
  • This limit has been kept for OBC from 15 to 28 years.

It was observed that the youth of Bihar though qualified, lacked the basic soft and Information Technology (IT) skills which are a pre-requisite for any job in today's world. Owing to this reason, the youth found it difficult to find the right jobs that match their qualification and aptitude.

In the above context, Bihar Skill Development Mission (BSDM) conceptualized and launched the Kushal Yuva Programme (KYP), a unique skill training programme to enhance the employability of the youth of Bihar which would add further value to the various domain-specific training endeavors of the State.


  • The KYP in its initial phase targets the youth in the age group of 15 to 25 years who are at least 10th pass. The course curriculum is covered in 240 hours and includes three components, specifically designed to enhance employability viz. Soft Skills for 40 hours, Communication Skills for 80 hours and Basic computer literacy for 120 hours.
  • The mode of delivery is completed through an 'E-Learning' platform named "E-learning Revolution for All (ERA)', which features self-paced learning, interactive sessions, practical learning, and corrective mechanisms, continuous and final evaluation. The 240 hours are equally divided into 120 sessions covering 20 sessions for soft skills, 40 sessions for communication skills and 60 sessions of basic computer literacy. The mode of learning is sequential and integrated into an online assessment and certification process ensures that a candidate receives session-wise certificates after successfully completing each session and a final certificate on successfully clearing the final assessment.
  • To ensure that the benefits reach the doorstep of each and every needy youth, BSDM has constructed 534 Block Skill Development Centres (BSDCs) at each of the 534 blocks across 38 districts of the state. To run these BSDCs, BSDM has successfully empaneled reputed Training organisations through a Request for Proposal (RFP) mode. Apart from BSDCs, BSDM has also registered private skilling centres with adequate space for running the KYP programme. An online registration process ensures uniformity and robustness across the centres.
  • Under this scheme, the standard of two classes has been kept, tenth and twelfth. According to these two classes, the applicant will have to apply separately.

Monitoring the programme

BSDM follows a multi-pronged approach to monitoring the KYP programme:

  • A team of District Skill Managers have been deployed at each district for periodic visits to monitor the progress of each centre.

  • The District Administration has also been entrusted with the task of monitoring the training conducted on a periodic basis.

  • A real-time Bio-metric Attendance system has been put in place to capture the daily 'in' and 'out' timings of enrolled candidates.

Finally, the most robust mechanism used for monitoring is the use of individual learning reports backed by time-stamped snapshots captured by the Web cameras installed in each Laptop/PC in the training center. BSDM can, at any time, access the student-wise learning reports along with the time-stamped photographs through a centralized login. Not only photographs, but BSDM also has access to short videos (termed as e-process folios) prepared by the candidates themselves performing certain assignments while undergoing the training programme.
