There is no indication of Rural Youth showing less interest in DDU-GKY in comparison to last year. The number of candidates trained under DDU-GKY during 2020-21 and 2021-22 has been impacted due to pandemic COVID-19 resulting in training centers being closed for a considerable period of time. So far a total of 32.22 lakh candidates have been registered for training and currently, 1.28 lakh candidates are undergoing training in various training centers spread across the country.
