GUIDELINES ON “HUNAR SE ROZGAR TAK” PROGRAMME
(AS ALIGNED TO THE COMMON NORMS NOTIFIED BY THE MINISTRY OF SKILL
DEVELOPMENT & ENTREPRENEURSHIP)
(Effective from 27th December, 2016)
(TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY SECTOR PROGRAMMEs FOR IMPLEMENTATION
UNDER THE SCHEME OF“CAPACITY BUILDING FOR SERVICE “)
As part of the Suo-Motu initiatives of the Ministry of Tourism under the Scheme of
“Capacity Building for Service Providers”, it was decided to provide financial assistance to
Govt. sponsored Tourism & Hospitality Institutes, Private Tourism/Hospitality Institutes,
State Tourism Development Corporations and State Governments etc. to conduct Skill
Development Programmes to be called “HUNAR SE ROZGAR” or its verticals. The
Programme offered short but quality training courses covering (i) Food & Beverage
Service (ii) Food Production (iii) Bakery & Patisserie (iv) Housekeeping Utility (v) Driving
Skills (vi) Stone Masonry (vii) Golf Caddies (viii) Tourist Facilitator etc. The programme
was aimed at targeting persons with not much means and in need to acquire skills
facilitative to employment. The implementation of the programme was subject to certain
administrative and financial Guidelines.
In order to bring about uniformity and standardization in the implementation of various
Skill Development Schemes by different Central Ministries/Departments, the Govt. of
India has decided to bring all the schemes/programmes relating to skill development
activities within the Common Norms notified by the Ministry of Skill Development &
Entrepreneurship with the approval of the Ministry of Finance. The Ministry of Tourism
has accordingly resolved to effect full transition to these norms with effect from 1st April,
2016 as per the Cabinet decision.
“Skill Development, for the purpose of any Government scheme, is defined as any
domain specific demand led skill training activity leading to employment or any outcome
oriented activity that enables a participant to acquire a skill duly assessed and certified by
an independent third party agency, and which enables him/her to get wage/selfemployment
leading to increased earnings, and/or improved working conditions, such as
getting formal certification for hitherto informal skills, and/or moving from informal to
formal sector jobs or pursue higher education/training and shall fall in the categories as
per below:
2
(i) For fresh entrants to the job market, the training duration to be minimum
200 hours (including practical and/or on the job training) except where
prescribed by any Statute
(ii) In case of re-skilling or skill up-gradation of persons already engaged in an
occupation, training programmes having a minimum duration of 16 hours or
more of trainings including practical and/or on the-job training.
(iii) In the case of persons who have acquired Skill through informal, non-formal
or experiential training in any vocational trade or craft, formal recognition
and certification of such skill, if necessary after imparting bridge courses, to
be treated as Skill Development.”
In conformity with the framework of skill development as defined above, all skill
development courses the course duration of which fall into categories (i) and (ii)
above would henceforth come under the umbrella of the “Hunar Se Rozgar Tak”
Programme of the Ministry of Tourism and include the courses listed below. After
incorporating the Common Norms as notified by the Ministry of Skill Development &
Entrepreneurship, as revised from time to time, the revised Guidelines governing the
implementation of the “HUNAR SE ROZGAR TAK” programme of the Ministry of
Tourism would be as follows with effect from the 27-12-2016:-

conducting the Hunar Se Rozgar Tak courses for the Ministry of Tourism. Similarly,
private agencies under PMKVY 2016-20 would also be allowed to conduct the
assessment under this programme. It has only to be ensured that the assessing
Institute/Implementing Agency does not become the self assessor for its own training
programmes so as to comply with the spirit of third party assessment. However
assessment and certification norms developed by the concerned regulatory bodies, sector
skill council / industry would be approved by the NSQC to ensure that the outcomes
conform to the appropriate NSQF level. Certificates issued post assessment will mention
the level of NSQF at which it lies. Third Party Certification & Assessment Costs to paid is

IV) Monitoring & Tracking
The HSRT Implementing Agencies shall have access to an open, common and extensible
data standards to ensure that their lT systems can share data and do transactions in a
scalable way. Standardized Application Program Interface (APIs) will also be defined for
use in the Management Information System (MIS) of various skills training programs.
Also, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship shall facilitate the
development of an integrated and interactive MIS based on the above standards and
APIS which should thereafter be available for use by all Implementing Agencies. This
integrated MIS should serve as an aggregator from the ERP/MIS solutions of States and
Ministries/Departments of specific programmes.
All the trainees trained under a project will be tracked for a period of one year from the
date of completion/certification of training with respect to their career progression,
retention and other parameters. An Innovative system for tracking to be developed that
5
shall use technology (web and mobile based) and has incentives for the trainees to
respond to the tracking system.
The following shall apply to the Monitoring & Tracking Mechanism:
(i) If particulars pertaining to 90% of the candidate in any batch are fed into the
central MlS, then this would account for successful tracking of the
candidates of that particular batch. Completion of this step would entitle the
training provider to seek disbursement of one instalment of the training cost
from the concerned Ministry, which would be 10% of the training cost, or an
amount of Rs.5,000/- per candidate, whichever is less.
(ii) Each candidate would be tracked once every month for a period of one year
in case of fresh entrants after she/he completes her/his training. Parameters
to be tracked would be as under:-
a) Placement should be within 3 months of completion of training
b) Once placed, remuneration/ incremental remuneration per month
c) Whether continues to work in the same or higher job role till end of the
tracking period (whether with same or different employer)
d) If there are periods of unemployment between different jobs, duration
of such gaps and reason for leaving earlier job without having a job in
hand.
(iii) Till the MIS becomes available, each Implementing Agency will ensure that
the list of the pass-outs along with their full contact details like address,
telephone number, Mobile numbers, their employer details and salary status
is posted on their website after conclusion of training of every batch.
V) OUTCOME OF THE COURSE
Since Employment (both wage and self) is a mandatory outcome of funding
under this programme, the outcomes from the “Hunar Se Rozgar Tak”
programmes shall be defined to include :-
(i) Employment (both wage and self) on an annual basis of at least 70% of
the successfully certified trainees within three months of completion
of training, with at least 50% of the trainees passing out being placed
in wage employment;
(ii) In case of wage employment and recognition of prior learning, candidates
shall be placed in jobs that provide wages/CTC at least equal to minimum
wages prescribed. In case the employer pays minimum wages in terms
of Cost to Company (CTC), atleast 80% of the CTC should be paid as
6
cash to the candidate. Such candidates should continue to be in jobs a
minimum period of three month from the date of placement in the
same or a higher level with the same or any other employer. For this
purpose, one-monthly pay slip can be accepted as the evidence to support
the wage employment. In addition, enrolment of candidates for
apprenticeship and Work Permit (Work Visa) for overseas employment
would also be treated as proof of employment;
(iii) In case of self-employment, candidates should have been employed
gainfully in livelihood enhancement occupations which are evidenced in
terms of trade license or setting up of an enterprise or becoming a member
of a producer group or proof of additional earnings (bank statement) or any
other suitable and verifiable document. In case of self-employment, securng
a relevant enterprise development loan can also considered as proof of
evidence under any other suitable and verifiable document.
(iv) In case of re-skilling or skill-upgradation of persons already engaged in an
occupation, at least 70% of such persons shall have an increase of at least
3% in remuneration within 14 months of completion of the skill development
training.
VI) Soft skills (which would include computer literacy, language and workplace interpersonal
skills relevant for the sector/trade) would be an integral part of the skills training
process and must be suitably integrated into the course modules of all the “Hunar Se
Rozgar Tak” courses. Each course will have a built-in emphasis on improving the
trainees’ behaviour and attitudes in order to enhance their market acceptability.
VII) The detailed guidelines on target group, implementing agencies, intake &
selection, annual targets, Publicity, Faculty and Attendance, Assessment & Certification
for various courses etc. have been indicated in the course guidelines at Annexures-A to
G.
VIII) Since the Base Cost (hourly rate per trainee) includes the components of
Mobilization of candidates, Post-placement tracking/ monitoring, Curriculum, Placement
expenses, Trainers training, Equipment, Amortization of infrastructure costs/utilities,
Teaching Aid, Raw material and Salary of trainers, there would be no need for rendering
detailed account for each of these components. However, the implementing agencies
would render detailed accounts for such components of expenditure like transport cost,
Boarding & Lodging, Additional support for Special Areas/Groups, Stipend/Incentive for
80% attendance and passing and Uniforms. The formats for rendering accounts would be

made acquainted with the modalities of the QP-NOS courses)
(iii) Industry relevant content, appropriate to the learning groups, and
conforming to the requirements of NSQF/SDIS, being used;
(iii) The students and trainers to be enrolled must be linked to Aadhar in the
Implementing Agency’s records as well as the individual’s Banks

It is hereby clarified that no payment would be due to the Implementing Agencies (training
providers) for the duration of on-the-job-training. As such, funds under common norms
would be released to the Implementing Agencies (training providers) for the duration of
the in-Institute training only.
II) Target Group : The training programmes will be open to youth in the age group of
18 to 28 years. However, those holding or pursuing Graduate level degree or
diploma or still higher qualifications will not be eligible for admission to the
programme. (The age limit can be relaxed for a class or category of persons by
the Ministry of Tourism depending upon reasons to be recorded in writing).
15
III) Conduct of the Programme : The Programme will be implemented through the
Institutes of Hotel Management, Food Craft Institutes sponsored by the Ministry of
Tourism and the India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC).
IV) Intake and selection : A class, to begin with, will have a minimum of 20 trainees
and a maximum of 30. In case the number of eligible candidates exceeds the
requirement of a batch and there is a requirement of additional batches, the
Implementing Agency will concurrently or in phases run more batches depending
on its institutional capacity. The Implementing Agency will maintain a register of
applications which will also indicate the date of receipt of each.
Placement/Self-employment being the major outcome of the skill
development programmes under the Common Norms, the Implementing
Agencies are advised that the concept of first-come-first-admitted presently
being followed would have to be made more restrictive to prevent nonserious
candidates (who actually do not aspire to be placed in the trade
owing to their possession of either much higher qualifications than what has
been prescribed or sound financial status) from participating in the HSRT
courses. If the HSRT implementing institutions have to fulfil the prescribed
Placement/Self-employment norm and discourage drop-outs during the
currency of training, they have to screen out the non-serious candidates
through the process of personal interviews. Towards this end, they could
even require the trainee to provide a signed Undertaking/Declaration to
refund the entire training cost, if the institute so desires, in case of default in
taking up the placement arranged by the institution post training or the
educational qualifications found NOT to be what had been declared in their
application form. If, however, the trainee himself/herself obtains any
employment in a trade related to the course undertaken within three months
of certification, the same shall be accepted as employment under placement
category.
V) Minimum target : Each Implementing Agency will conduct the Programme in such
a way that the minimum Annual targets set by the Ministry of Tourism is not only
achieved but also exceeded to the maximum extent possible.

VII) Candidates selected will join only after undergoing basic medical test and police
verification.
VIII) Hotels should take in 50% more candidates than the number of seats to
accommodate for drop-outs during the training period.
31
IX) A minimum of ten persons will constitute a training class to begin with. Since a
hotel with rooms between 20 to 50 will not be expected to have facilities /
infrastructure necessary for the conduct of trainings, an arrangement can be
worked out between 2 to 5 hotels to conduct this obligatory training (only the theory
part) in one cluster and the practical part is carried out in the respective hotels.
X) For provision of uniforms for trainees, an amount of Rs.1900/- per trainee will
be allowed and this amount shall be over and above the Base Cost. Uniforms for
the different trades will be supplied by The Handicrafts & Handlooms Exports
Corporation of India Ltd. (HHEC). These will be ordered as per requirement by the
local IHM to be collected by hotels of the region, based on their demand. Hotels
must issue only one set of uniform during the first week of training of candidates
and only after ensuring their continuity, issue the second uniform to prevent
misuse. (Cost of uniform will be reimbursed to IHM by the Ministry of Tourism).
Hotels, if required, can issue their own uniform during the training period.
XI) Tool-kits to be provided by the local IHM and issued to the hotels based on their
requirement. Cost of tool kit will be reimbursed to IHM by Ministry of Tourism as
part of the Base Cost.
XII) Stipend/Incentive : A trainee with a minimum attendance of 80% will be paid lump
sum incentive/stipend of Rs.1,500/- in respect of the Craft Baker, Food & Beverage
Service Steward, Room Attendant and Front office Associate courses and
Rs.2,000/- in respect of the Multi Cuisine Cook course subject to his/her passing in
the course. The Incentive/Stipend for 80% attendance to the certified pass-outs will
be paid by the local IHM at the end of the training (the Ministry of Tourism will
reimburse the amount). Attendance will be monitored by the hotel and verified by
the local IHM before release of Incentive/Stipend.
XIII) Attendance, assessment and certification shall be regulated in accordance with the
provisions contained in para II (Attendance, Assessment and Certification) of the
HSRT guidelines.
XIV) Data base will be maintained by IHM for all successful candidates with their
photograph, address and contact details. This data will be utilized for uploading on
MoT/NCHMCT website.
XV) Employment (both Wage and Self) of successful trainees is mandatory for the
Hotels conducting the HSRT programme as per the Common Norms.
32
Placement/Self-employment being the major outcome of the skill
development programmes under the Common Norms, the Implementing
Agencies are advised that the concept of first-come-first-admitted presently
being followed would have to be made more restrictive to prevent nonserious
candidates (who actually do not aspire to be placed in the trade
owing to their possession of either much higher qualifications than what has
been prescribed or sound financial status) from participating in the HSRT
courses. If the HSRT implementing institutions have to fulfil the prescribed
Placement/Self-employment norm and discourage drop-outs during the
currency of training, they have to screen out the non-serious candidates
through the process of personal interviews. Towards this end, they could
even require the trainee to provide a signed Undertaking/Declaration to
refund the entire training cost, if the institute so desires, in case of default in
taking up the placement arranged by the institution post training or the
educational qualifications found NOT to be what had been declared in their
application form. If, however, the trainee himself/herself obtains any
employment in a trade related to the course undertaken within three months
of certification, the same shall be accepted as employment under placement
category.
XVI) Where hotels, of different star categories, do not have training facilities, the Hotel
Association may conduct combined training at different units.
XVII) In addition to the costs on Uniform, Assessment & Certification and
stipend/incentive, the mentor Institute of Hotel Management will be paid only
20% of the current Base Cost towards the two components of (i) Mobilization
of candidates and (ii)Teaching Aids (including Course material & Tool Kit).

It is hereby clarified that no payment would be due to the Implementing Agencies (training
providers) for the duration of on-the-job-training. As such, funds under common norms
would be released to the Implementing Agencies (training providers) for the duration of
the in-Institute training only.
II) Target Group : The training programmes will be open to youth in the age group of
18 to 28 years. However, those holding Graduate level degree or diploma or still
higher qualifications will not be eligible for admission to the programme. (The age
limit can be relaxed for a class or category of persons by the Ministry of Tourism
depending upon reasons to be recorded in writing).
34
III) Conduct of the Programme : The Programme will be implemented through the
hospitality institutes that have the approval as such of the AICTE/National Skill
Development Authority/State Governments/Union Territory Administrations. Each
organisation will be considered by the Ministry of Tourism (MoT) in terms of an
application in the prescribed form subject to the following amongst others:
a) It possesses the required training facilities as certified by a team (deputed by
MoT) on the basis of an inspection prior to the project sanction;
b) It is not in receipt of funds from MoT through the State Government for HSRT
implementation.
IV) Programme Authorities
The Ministry of Tourism will be competent authority for (a)The selection of the
implementing organisations;(b) The matters of policy, strategy and size of the
programme and the matters connected therewith; (c) The processing of project and
financial sanctions including issuing clarifications on connected aspects; and (d)
The programme monitoring and inspections.
V) Intake and Selection
A class will start with a minimum of 20 trainees and a maximum of 30. However,
the programme will have an inclusive nature. In case the number of eligible
candidates exceeds the requirement of a batch, and there is a requirement of
additional batches, the Implementing organisation will concurrently or in phases
run more batches depending on its institutional capacity with the prior approval of
MoT. The Implementing organisation will maintain a register of applications which
will also indicate the date of receipt of each.
Placement/Self-employment being the major outcome of the skill
development programmes under the Common Norms, the Implementing
Agencies are advised that the concept of first-come-first-admitted presently
being followed would have to be made more restrictive to prevent nonserious
candidates (who actually do not aspire to be placed in the trade
owing to their possession of either much higher qualifications than what has
been prescribed or sound financial status) from participating in the HSRT
courses. If the HSRT implementing institutions have to fulfil the prescribed
Placement/Self-employment norm and discourage drop-outs during the
currency of training, they have to screen out the non-serious candidates
through the process of personal interviews. Towards this end, they could
even require the trainee to provide a signed Undertaking/Declaration to
refund the entire training cost, if the institute so desires, in case of default in
taking up the placement arranged by the institution post training or the
educational qualifications found NOT to be what had been declared in their
application form. If, however, the trainee himself/herself obtains any
employment in a trade related to the course undertaken within three months
of certification, the same shall be accepted as employment under placement
category.
35
VI) Training Target : Each Implementing organisation will pursue such targets as may
be fixed by the Ministry of Tourism (MoT) annually. The MoT will, however, have
the discretion to revise the targets mid-stream reckoning the organisation’s
performance.
VII) Application fees : There will be no application or course fees chargeable to the
applicant / eventual trainee.
VIII) Publicity : The Implementing organisation will publicize the programme by
inserting advertisement - not more than two in a year - in the newspapers and also
putting it on its website. The Implementing organisation will also publicize the
programme through the Trade Associations, State Tourism Corporations and
Vyapaar Mandals through interaction/workshops etc. Talks on TV / Radio channels
may also be arranged.
IX) Uploading of video Clipping : Each Implementing organisation will upload, on the
10th day and concluding day of the training course, a video clipping/ a clear
photograph showing the class with trainees in uniform and with their respective tool
kits on the e-mail address of the Programme Monitoring Unit (Skill Development)
(pmuhsrt@gmail.com).After conclusion of training of every batch, each
Implementing organisation will ensure that the list of the pass-outs along with their
full contact details like address, telephone number, Mobile numbers (excluding
female trainees) etc. and their employment and salary status is posted on their
website.
X) Inspection & Monitoring : MoT may, at its discretion, have the programme
inspected by its own team or by a third party. Based on the inspection reports, MoT
may issue, if necessary, directions as to corrections in programme implementation,
and may cancel, if the facts of the inspection so warrant, the project itself with
consequential liability on the implementing organisation.
XII) Stipend/Incentive : A trainee with a minimum attendance of 80% will be paid lump
sum incentive/stipend of Rs.1,500/- in respect of the Craft Baker, Food & Beverage
Service Steward, Room Attendant and Front office Associate courses and
