Government of Karnataka formulated State Policy on Skill Development in the year 2008. Launching of the policy ahead of the National Policy demonstrated the priority given by the state towards skill development. Karnataka Vocational Training and Skill Development Corporation (KVTSDC) was formed to provide short-term training and facilitate job opportunities. All though, the policy was very progressive, implementation efficiency was limited by its excessive dependency on the Institution of KVTSDC. Skill Development is a vast program which is required to be taken though convergent and collaborative approach involving several players. To reach the stakeholders at the village level, a robust, multi-tier and efficient implementation mechanism is vital. The key stakeholders were not fully involved and not much emphasis was placed on the quality of training. The implementation lacked appropriate and periodical monitoring and evaluation. The funding for implementing the policy was also not sufficient.
