Saran, being a predominantly agrarian district
of Bihar state, agriculture is the main occupation  of 
the  people  of  the  district 
and  also  their 
main  source  of 
livelihood. Livestock  is  very 
important  in  a 
district  like  Saran 
with  a  predominantly agricultural economy. Dairy  farming 
is  largely  practiced 
as  a  traditional 
backyard  activity  and  it
represents  a  considerable 
share  of  income 
even  for  the 
poor  households  in 
cases where  household  with 
only  dairy  income 
is  considered  and 
Saran  is  also  one  of such district of Bihar. Although  Saran 
is  positioned  to 
leverage  the  opportunities,  farmers 
practicing dairy  farming,  paddy, 
wheat,  maize  and 
tuber  crop  cultivation 
are  reportedly constrained due to
structural and skill related gaps and other external factors also. Further,
demand for Maize and Tuber crops is on the rise, and Saran District is endowed
with deep, flat and fertile soil capable of sustaining crop production. In  view 
of  the  above 
and  to  ensure 
sustainable  means  of 
livelihoods  for  the existing 
farmers  by  means 
of  up-skilling  and 
enhanced  scope  for 
better  price realization  of 
their  produce,  it 
has  been  envisaged by Ministry of Skill Development
& Entrepreneurship (MSDE) to structure a suitable Recognition of Prior
Learning (RPL) for these experienced farmers.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) aims to
align the competencies of the unregulated workforce of the country to National
Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF), which is a competency based framework
that organizes all qualifications according to a series of levels of knowledge,
skills and aptitude. RPL is a platform to provide recognition to the informal
learning or learning through work to get equal acceptance as the formal levels
of education.
The programme aims to impart skills training
for existing workers to align the competencies of the unregulated workforce to
the NSQF under PMKVY RPL scheme. RPL focuses on enhancing the career/
employability opportunities of an individual as well as provide alternative
routes to greater standards of living through skill enhancement. It also
envisages providing opportunities for reducing inequalities based on certain
privileged forms of knowledge over others. It is a process of assessment of an
individual’s prior learning to give due importance to learning as an outcome
rather than learning as a process.
IL&FS Skills has been allotted a target to
train 10,000 farmers, including both men and women, in Saran district of Bihar,
belonging to socially marginalized communities. Post completion of training,
the farmers will be certified by Agriculture Skill Council of India (ASCI).
IL&FS Skills has conducted RPL program for
multiple sectors including Agriculture, Apparel, Construction, Leather,
Handicrafts & Carpet, Security, Tourism & Hospitality, RPL of
Rashtrapati Bhawan employees, CRFP Jawans and street vendors through FSSAI in
past as well, under the aegis of NSDC, and MSDE. This initiative of RPL under
the PMKVY is expected to enable a large number of Indian youth to take  up 
industry-relevant  skill  training, which  will 
help  them  secure 
a  better livelihood.
