SWADES Scheme by Central Government
SWADES (Skilled Workers Arrival Database for Employment Support) Scheme has been launched as many Indian citizens are returning home amid Coronavirus lockdown across the world. Many of the overseas returning citizens are facing uncertainty regarding their future employment opportunities as COVID-19 spread across the globe has had a significant economic impact. It had resulted in losing of jobs of thousands of workers and hundreds of companies have been shut down globally.
Lakhs of citizens have registered at the various Indian missions requesting to return to the country. Till date, more than 57,000 people have already returned to the country under Vande Bharat Mission. So the govt. has started SWADES Skill Card Scheme to ensure that people returning India due to job loss possess international skill sets and experience which can be of great value for domestic and international markets.
