Speaking about the initiative, Delhi Labour Minister Raaj Kumar Anand said, "Our goal is to empower our construction workers and workers with skills that transcend borders. By investing in their capabilities, we are not only boosting their individual prospects but also contributing to the overall growth of our economy."

The Kejriwal government plans to establish training camps at labour chowks and construction sites in the region to enhance workers' skills and improve their livelihoods.

The government will compensate for wage losses during the training period, recognising the dedication of workers to upskilling.

The financial support aims to encourage more workers to participate without fear of economic setbacks, adhering to Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) guidelines, and ensuring fair compensation for workers engaged in skill enhancement. 

“The Kejriwal government remains committed to fostering skill development and creating pathways for a brighter future for construction workers and labourers,” said Anand.
