Empowering Communities: CSDCI’s Impact in Upskilling Masons for PM Awas Yojana-Rural in Lucknow

In a transformative initiative, the Construction Skill Development Council of India (CSDCI) has played a pivotal role in upskilling 39,000 masons (Raj Mistri) in Lucknow. This concerted effort aims to enhance construction standards under the ambitious PM Awas Yojana-Rural. The impact of this training reverberates through improved employment prospects, increased income, and elevated housing quality for communities.

The training, aligned with the Rural Mason Qualification Pack of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), is a collaborative effort led by the Deen Dayal Upadhyay State Rural Development Institute in Lucknow, in partnership with CSDCI. This strategic collaboration underscores the commitment to aligning skill development initiatives with national standards and addressing the specific needs of rural development.

Certification through this program empowers masons with the ability to engage with larger agencies and secure higher wages. Beyond the economic benefits, the initiative focuses on enhancing the overall quality of housing, contributing to the realization of the PM Awas Yojana-Rural’s objectives.

What makes this initiative even more commendable is the inclusive approach adopted by CSDCI. The training has reached 2,542 women masons, breaking gender barriers and promoting diversity in a traditionally male-dominated profession. This emphasis on inclusivity not only enriches the workforce but also fosters a more equitable and empowered society.

The success of this training program goes beyond the individual skill enhancement; it symbolizes a community-focused approach to development. By equipping masons with certified skills, CSDCI is contributing to the broader goal of sustainable and resilient rural development.

As the impact of this initiative continues to unfold, it serves as a shining example of how skill development, aligned with national programs, can be a catalyst for positive change at the grassroots level. CSDCI’s commitment to empowering communities through skill enhancement is evident in every certified mason, each contributing to the transformation of Lucknow’s rural landscape.
