India, a land of diversity is currently keeping up the pace with growth and prosperity. India as a nation has been witnessing the development in almost all areas. Nevertheless, all the sections of the society need to partake in this prosperity. The marginalized sections of the society also need to envision, create and scale-up ventures to be a major participant in this growth story.
With an aim to enable the socio-economic empowerment of the SC/ST communities, the Government of India has launched the National SC/ST Hub. It is an initiative for developing a supportive ecosystem towards SC/ST entrepreneurs.
In this regard, the Ministry of MSME is promoting a capacity-building program for Skill development of SC ST MSEs with a collaboration of training institutes. These training programs are offered free of cost to SC/ST candidates by the Ministry of MSME under this scheme.
