Did you hear? In a bid to ensure foreign placement for the youth, the government has proposed to launch 50 India International Skill Centers (IISC) across the country.

The new centers have been introduced in Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Jharkhand, Bihar, Andhra Pradesh/Telangana, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Punjab and Rajasthan, the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship said in a statement.

IISCs have been set up to provide requisite training and certification programs to youth who are intent on migrating overseas for work.

Several countries that are open to immigration usually post requirements for skilled labour, so this move by our government comes as a great move to address this problem.

Several western countries allow Indian immigrants to work on account of various factors – the first and foremost being cheap labour. However, this too doesn’t come without a flip side. Several immigrants who leave the country on contract jobs are stranded without legal backing in foreign countries during crises.
