The pilot of GSDP was launched in June, 2017 at 10 locations, spread over 9 bio-geographic regions of the country. On completion of each course, the Ministry issues certificates to the successful candidates. Overall, 135 training programmes were conducted at 87 locations throughout the country and 2315 youth have been successfully trained under various courses during 2018-19. In FY 2019-20, around 100 training programmes are being conducted at different locations across the country.
