15 lakh jobs under ‘Yuva Kiranalu'

Special Correspondent

Three existing schemes to be brought under Yuva Kiranalu to achieve the set goals


A team of officials to work out modalities for implementation of the scheme

The new initiative conceived since unemployment is high in the State


HYDERABAD: The Kiran Kumar Reddy government has taken a key decision to launch a new employment-generation scheme named “Yuva Kiranalu” aimed at developing and upgrading skills among youths to make them employable.

Three existing schemes—Rajiv Udyogsri, Employment Generation and Marketing Mission and Mission for Elimination of Poverty in Municipal Areas -- will be brought under Yuva Kiranalu to achieve the set goals.

The plan is to provide employment to 15 lakh youths every two and half years through skills upgradation, benefiting at least one person each in below-poverty family and meeting the industry requirements.

Over 18.7 lakh youths have been trained under the three schemes so far, with 12.8 lakh out of them being employed already.

The decision to go in for “Yuva Kiranalu” was finalised by the Chief Minister at meeting with Ministers and senior officials here on Thursday. He will inaugurate the scheme sometime in August.

Mr. Reddy ordered for constitution of a team of officials to work out the modalities for its implementation with the involvement of private and corporate sectors on a mission mode.

The new initiative has been conceived since unemployment is high in the State and also high demand for skilled personnel.

Briefing reporters later, Labour & Employment Minister D. Nagender said 500 vocational training centres would be opened in the State afresh under the scheme, adding to the existing 128, for skills development and upgradation.

Preference

D. Srinivasulu, Secretary, Labour and Employment, said those who had registered their names in employment exchanges ( 20 lakh now) would be given preference.
