Pradhan Mantri National Apprenticeship Mela (PMNAM):

A Nation-Wide program of conducting ‘Pradhan Mantri National Apprenticeship Mela (PMNAM)' on second Monday of every month, in 1/3 Districts of every State/ UT, has been devised by MSDE, GOI . J&K is also taking part in this nation-wide campaign with full enthusiasm and vigor. The event witnessed the participation of various companies from different sectors and had the chance  to meet potential apprentices on a single platform and choose applicants  on the spot and provide them with an opportunity to be a part of their organization.

PMNAM  is being used as a platform to increase the participation of establishments and students. It is also  providing awareness to the youth on various opportunities  existing across the participating companies.

The major purpose of this programme is  to encourage companies to hire more apprentices,  while also assisting employers in discovering the right talent and developing their potential via training and practical experience. It aims to raise apprenticeship opportunities in India to 60 lakhs by 2026.


The distribution of Mela venues for the forthcoming PM National Apprenticeship Melas (PMNAM) to be conducted in each District of UT of J&K, each month, has been proposed, as per under:
