Last year Prime Minister of India launched a nationwide programme called “Make in India” to encourage multinational and domestic companies to manufacture their products in India. The main objectives are not only to bring in foreign direct investment but also provide millions of youth to gainfully employed using the skill development programme. To realize the dream India needs skilled work force of almost 110 million by 2022.The challenges are many. Recent NSSO survey among the religious groups find Muslims are mostly employed in the vocational sectors without any formal training and position of Muslim women is worst among them. Open and distance learning system opens up the opportunities for the minorities. Open schools and universities offer courses in the traditional vocational course which would help them to refine their skills and also enhance and augment the capacities of the Muslim learners. Certification of training also helps them to be employed in private and government sectors. In this paper, opportunities thrown open by the ODL will be discussed.
