The UDAAN is a flagship project and launched jointly with the National Institute of MSME (http://nimsme.org/), Ministry of MSME, Government of India for Promotion of Export, Entrepreneurship and Women Empowerment.
UDAAN is conceptualized by alumni and ex-professors of the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, New Delhi to help & educate MSMEs in Export Promotion and Marketing.
UDAAN has also partnered with NFDI (M/o Textiles, Govt. of India) for organizing awareness campaigns across India to motivate start-ups and entrepreneurs especially women & youth in Handloom, Handicraft and Khadi Sector to get incubation & acceleration service opportunities for access to financial, technical and business support with an aim towards exports and employment generation.
The ‘Make in India’ campaign focuses on facilitating investments, fostering innovation, enhancing skill development, protecting intellectual property & building best-in-class manufacturing infrastructure. An announcement made in the union budget 2020-21 envisioned that each District should develop as an EXPORT HUB; this would require a substantial skilled workforce to be developed in each district to meet the impending requirement.
Less than 5% of the workforce in India has received any formal skill training leading to a very pronounced skill gap both in terms of quality and quantity. Overall skill gap would be significantly larger than the incremental workforce requirement as even the existing workforce would need re-skilling, up-skilling, or any other skill-specific training.
