Amongst the schemes of the MSDE, placements is specifically tracked under PMKVY. Under PMKVY,  24.30 lakh candidates have been provided employment till September 2022. However, as per the third party evaluation reports of other said schemes, there is success in terms of placement or enhancement of income of candidates trained. As far as the employment of the JSS scheme beneficiaries is concerned, third party evaluation report of the scheme has observed that as an impact of the training programme conducted at JSSs, the self and wage employment and private job have become evident. The usefulness of the scheme would be further self-evident from the fact that same report has mentioned that 77.05% of the beneficiary trainees have undergone occupational shifts. The final report of Tracer Study of ITI Graduates (published in January 2018 by the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, GoI) mentions that 63.5% of total ITI pass-outs got employed (wage+ self, out of which 6.7% are self-employed).
