Skilled Workers Arrival Database for Employment Support

Country flag

To ensure returnees have opportunities for post-return employment, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), under the Skill India Mission, has partnered with the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) and the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and created a database of qualified citizens – based on skillsets and experience. Under the SWADES programme, returning citizens are required to fill up a SWADES skill form following which a SWADES skill card is issued. The Ministry then shares the collected information with companies for suitable placement opportunities in the country.
