SmartBrains is also running Scheme for Financial Assistance to select States/UTs for Skill Development in Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) sector We also aim to equip non-college- bound high school graduates with sufficient work-skills to command family supporting wages. What we see around us in the fast-growing Indian economy is a veritable paradox. While employment avenues are increasing rapidly, they are not being filled by people with compatible skill-sets. Unemployment, therefore, continues to rise inexorably. The result is perpetuation of poverty, right in the midst of opportunity, so in this end we are running a skill development program (ESDM). The Scheme is proposed to target students studying at IX/X standard onwards, ITI, Polytechnic, under-graduate (non-engineering) and also unemployed youth who are school dropouts from 8th pass onwards, ITI Certificate or Diploma holders, graduates from non-engineering background. The courses under the Scheme would be approved by an Expert Committee setup by Deity. These courses would be conducted by three Key Implementing Agencies (KIA) viz. ESSCI, NIELIT, TSSC through their own centers/ affiliated Training Partners.

Benefits of the scheme:

1. 75% fee assistance (25% scholarship for meritorious SC/ST/Economically Weaker Sections students)
2. 100% Placement Assistance
3. Certificate awarded by ESSCI
