Strengthening national initiatives to shape a prosperous future

There has been a transformative shift in the global economy as a result of growing connectivity, adoption of digital technology as well as the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. While the changes present immense opportunities for economic and social growth and development, this ‘new reality’ also presents daunting challenges for countries and economies, including a growing one, like India.

Governments, at all levels, are and will be critical players in leading this transformation and the new wave of sustainable prosperity through jobs, investment and new industries. In line with this, Government of India has launched national programmes and business reforms that present opportunities for firms like ours to participate in nation building across a broad spectrum of reforms.

The social sector has been a driving force in developing India’s economy with multiple organisations striving to empower local communities, thereby reducing the perils faced by the disadvantaged sections of the society pertaining to healthcare, livelihood, sanitation, education and other humanitarian causes.

KPMG in India collaborates with the government in nearly a third of its ministries, to support the various programmes across infrastructure, citizen services and more.

Our team works closely with thinktanks and the private sector to drive results, enable transformation and promote job creation. With a nationwide presence and global network, we deliver integrated services, focusing on responsiveness, flexibility and accountability to meet the needs of India's citizens.

The work we do for our clients should also benefit our people, communities and world. By leveraging our professional strengths, we will continue to inspire confidence and empower change, contributing to India’s growth journey.

Ushering in quality education for the youth of India

Skill development and vocational training in India are on a path of acceleration. Skills Strengthening for Industrial Value Enhancement (STRIVE) is a World Bank-assisted Government of India project with the objective of improving the relevance and efficiency of skills training provided through Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and apprenticeship by involving SMEs, business association and industry clusters.

KPMG in India was engaged in supporting the programme’s implementation, helping improve market relevance of skill development in long-term vocational education training.

An outcome-based Central Sector Scheme (CSS) with a budget outlay of INR2,200 crore (US$318 million), STRIVE covers the following four result areas:

  • Improved performance of ITIs
  • Increased capacity of state governments to support ITIs and apprenticeship training
  • Improved teaching and learning
  • Improved and broadened apprenticeship training.

Our teams supported delivery of on-ground results by:

  • Implementing a grading framework across 13,500+ Information Technology Institutes (ITIs)
  • Enhancing training outcomes for more than 2.5 lakh ITI trainees across 426 projects

We also developed a career progression policy that:

  • Impacted over 70,000 trainers
  • Supported the development and implementation of computer-based test for over 12 lakh trainees
  • Institutionalised the concept of apprenticeship training via MSME industry clusters across India

The scheme helps empower change by supporting the country’s rise in the ‘Ease of Doing Business’ index and facilitating a steady supply of a globally competitive workforce to the industry.

Har ghar jal: Enhancing ease of living

With the goal of providing safe and adequate drinking water through individual tap connections to every household in rural areas by 2024, our Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji, launched Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) in 2019. Its aim is to not only ensure ease of living, but also enhance the quality of life, especially for the female members of every household.

JJM is also playing a pivotal role in improving the health index, as evidenced by a research paper led by Nobel Laureate Michael Kremer, which found it to have the potential to prevent about 1,36,000 under-5 deaths per year.

A recent WHO report estimates that ensuring safely managed drinking water for all households could avert nearly 400,000 deaths caused by diarrheal diseases and prevent approximately 14 million Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) related to these diseases. This achievement would result in estimated cost savings of up to US$101 billion.

KPMG in India has been closely working with the Ministry of Jal Shakti, Department of Drinking Water & Sanitation, as the National Project Management Unit, assisting program implementation by supporting in multiple thematic areas viz. program management, financial monitoring, HRD & capacity building, data analysis, and in activities related to social media, and information, education & communication (IEC). At the time of writing this report, over 12.27 crore rural households had been provided with tap water connections.

One of the critical aspects of strong delivery and building trust is the innovative solutions we bring to our clients. One such idea was the formation of a ‘Rural WASH Partner Forum’ with the objective of bringing together multiple stakeholders, such as NGOs and state governments, on a single platform to foster and facilitate sharing of experiences, ideas and innovative solutions. The proposal was wellreceived and was implemented by the Ministry.

With sustainability and consumer-centricity at its core, the program is a crucial step towards achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 6, which aims to ensure access to water and sanitation for all. And we are honored to be part of this national seminal initiative.

Enhancing the quality of school education in Nagaland

Nagaland's education system faces myriad challenges, leading to declining student learning outcomes as reflected in the findings of the National Achievement Surveys (NAS).

To address this, the World Bank-funded Nagaland: Enhancing Classroom Teaching and Resources (NECTAR) project aims to improve learning outcomes in government schools and elevate teaching practices and quality of learning environments in select schools.

Aligned with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the programme will benefit 2,000 schools, 20,000 teachers and 150,000 students from kindergarten to grade 12.

KPMG in India has helped develop the blueprint of an innovative model that reorients the education system’s focus from inputs towards learning outcomes. This includes a model for developing teachers as instructional leaders.

We have supported the Department of School Education (DSE) in developing the implementation roadmap through technical assistance in stakeholder management, monitoring framework of project objectives and results indicators, financial management, procurement management and concept notes.

The Performance Incentive Grants (PIG) has been acknowledged as a success, benefitting about 1,875 schools across the state, with each school undertaking needs-based planning and fulfilling specific needs in categories of school infrastructure development, classroom learning and development as well as community participation.

The NEP-The Lighthouse project is the firstever World Bank-financed education project in the north-east region of India to be directly implemented by a state government, i.e., Department of School Education (DSE), Government of Nagaland.

Impacting the entire learning arena, from the curriculum and schools to the teachers and students – NECTAR emphasises on reinforcing the relevance of ‘Communitisation’ of schools and strengthen the community’s role as guardians of public institutions.

Nandini Govind finds her calling in building a future for the children

Growing up, Nandini struggled with confidence but had big aspirations. In 2014, when she was in the ninth grade, her life took a turn for the better when, through her alma mater, Shishu Mandir in Bengaluru, she got the opportunity to join KPMG in India’s ‘Aspire’ programme.

The guidance she received from her Aspire mentor helped her become more resilient and responsible; taught her gratitude and empathy; nudged her to tackle challenges in different, more effective ways and got her to focus on personal development. Over the years, a visibly stronger and confident Nandini emerged. She knew what her heart wanted and was determined to go after it. With an eagerness to make a positive difference to the lives of those in need, from doing volunteer work as the President of Shishu Mandir Rotaract Club, Nandini went on to start her own NGO, Advaya Educational and Charitable Trust.

Through Advaya, Nandini works to protect and ensure the welfare of children – especially girls from remote villages and underprivileged communities. The goal is to support children in overcoming their challenges, getting an education and shaping a good future for themselves.


7. IT skilling for better employability

In today’s digital age, IT skills are not just handy but essential. We have a year-long residential programme designed to improve the employability of women from underserved communities, in the age group of 16–25 years, by equipping them with skills in software programming, mathematics and logical thinking.

The programme has benefited
over 160
students so far.


8. Youth mentoring

We have engaged volunteers to act as guides and mentors for underprivileged youth and help them embark on a fulfilling career. Their interactions cover aspects such as creative thinking, social media and financial literacy.

Over 1.5k
youth have benefited from this initiative. We aim to expand this to 2k students.


9. A second chance for at-risk youth

As part of our focus on supporting the youth of our country, we have partnered with Ritinjali’s Second Chance School – a residential and day school programme for disadvantaged boys between the age of 18 and 24 years. The transformational programme aims to reintegrate young adults into the social fabric and workforce, in a secure, loving and stimulating environment.

Ritinjali’s Second Chance School

Brijesh Kumar Yadav, a migrant from Uttar Pradesh and former security guard, honed his understanding of computer hardware and software while at the Second Chance School. He participated in an entrepreneurship programme by KPMG in India and was shortlisted as one of the five students who got an opportunity to present their business idea and models to a panel.

After three rounds of extensive evaluation and deliberation, Brijesh’s door-to-door laptop repair service was selected as the winner and awarded a seed funding of INR200,000 (c.US$2,600).

He has now successfully launched his business and earns INR8,000–11,000/month (c.US$100–150/month) from it, over and above his earnings from his day job. This added income has been a major contributor to an improved quality of life for Brijesh.


10. Livelihood and skilling for tribal women

We support the NGO Nudge in alleviating ultra-poverty in three districts of Jharkhand through a 36-month micro-entrepreneurship programme, working with women-led ultra-poor families and creating an identity for them by providing them with consumption and livelihood support. We also imparted livelihood and skill training to these women on agriculture and animal husbandry. Additionally, these individuals have been integrated with various government and welfare schemes and provided basic identity proofs such as ration and Aadhaar cards.

Over 1.4k
women in the age group of 18–30 years have been supported in Jharkhand. We plan to work with the state and central governments and extend our support to multiple states.


11. Kindling an entrepreneurial mindset for youth

To build entrepreneurial mindsets in students from a young age, KPMG in India supports the NGO Alohomora, which actively works with Delhi Government on the Entrepreneurial Mindset Curriculum (EMC), which provides students an opportunity to interact with real-life entrepreneurs, explore different career paths and apply their skills in real life

In addition to EMC, we support the Desh ke mentors (DKM) programme, which is the largest mentorship programme led by Delhi Government, aimed at ensuring that every student in grades 9 to 12 in Delhi Government schools gets the right mentorship and support to make important career and life decisions.
