Update on skill voucher

This is inform all that GSDM is likely to issue skill vouchers in next financial year. There is liklihood that in all around 20000 skill vouchers of value between Rs 2500 to Rs 5000 would be issued this financial year which would be available to all the elligible institutes:
Kindly note following type of institutes are elligible
1.     Institutes recognised or empaneled  by  Government of Gujarat department / body /GCVT/  NCVT :  To make it more clear : Institutes recognised by GKS, UMEED, DRDA, RSETI, RUDSETI, Tribal department, CED, NSDC etc. Separate affiliation with GCVT or NCVT is not needed.2.      Institutes recognised by or running projects of Central Government or any department of Government of Gujarat But just being eligible is not enough the institute need to complete certain formalities to get proper skill voucher status on the portal. The process is simple but mandatory.
Once GSDM publicise the scheme it is possible that you may miss the bus becuase of shortage of time. Accordingly it is highly advised that if you are interested in taking benefit of the skill vouchers the first thing that you must do is get the proper skill voucher status for the institute. GSDM will be issuing skill vouchers to the institutes in order of the existing employability index of the institutes. So it is not only important to register and upload the data but also update the placement else you might loose on skill vouchers.
The details are in FAQ at following link but for convienence it is reproduced below.
First kindly register with the portal.
1.     Upload and update the list of candidates trained by you in last one year.
2.     Get an account with Axis bank (The list of banks will be expanded lateron. But presently the payments will be made only through AXIS banks hence it is a mandatory provision)
3.     Login on the portal and request for the desired skill voucher status after uploading the required documents. This can be done by editing your institutes profile on the protal.
4.     In addition to this Download the format of application from portal 
5.     Then approach to GSDM (Floor1, Block 16, Udyaog Bhavan, Gandhinagar) with relevant documents ie proof of account and empanelment.
