Realising, the need and growing urbanization in the coming decades, the Government of India had started a scheme of Shramik Vidyapeeths (SVPs) - a programme of Adult Education for Workers in Urban and Industrial areas. The first Shramik Vidyapeeth was established in Mumbai (Worli) . To facilitate playing a battle role, the scheme of Shramik Vidyapeeth has been renamed as Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS)-Institute of People's Education (IPE)-with enhanced financial support. Considering the changing literacy scenario in the country and the large number of neo-literates to be covered under Continuing Education programme [in which skill development/ upgradation is a part], the activities of Jan Shikshan Sansthans have been expended to provide academic and technical support to Zila Saksharata Samities [District Literacy Committees] in taking up vocational and skill development programmes for neo-literates in both urban and rural areas and also to organise equivalency programmes through Open Learning Systems.
