The e-courses intend to empower the youth to gain basic technical skills, communication skills, financial literacy along with information and communication technology (ICT), and micro entrepreneurial skills for socio-economic self-reliance. The online nature of the skill training provides easy access to the courses from the comfort of homes across the country.
