Abstract: In 2009, National Skill Development (NSD) Policy was reformed to modify the vocational education system in India. The skills development and entrepreneurship policy developed in 2015 tries to solve the challenges of skill development by inspiring early signs, development, and variations. The present study is based on a primary survey conducted in four districts of Sikkim involving 600 respondents from amongst the various stakeholders and examines whether there is any significant difference in the expressed belief held by stake-holders vis-à-vis the challenges identified in the skill eco space in Sikkim. These challenges are namely resistance to relocation by Sikkim's youth for employment, stigma against labor-oriented jobs, preference for government jobs, belief that skilling is for low academic achievers, and lack of industrial opportunities and development in the State of Sikkim. The findings can be utilized for suggesting recommendations and way forward to remove these barriers for better outreach and effective implementation of various schemes by adopting suitable practices.
