Chandigarh, September 9 (Trinew)

Chief Minister Manohar Lal said that providing new employment opportunities to the youth of the state through employment fairs is a proof of the government’s commitment. This year too, a common platform will be provided for job seekers and employers through 200 employment fairs. As part of a special discussion program on Saturday, the Chief Minister was directly communicating with the youth who got employment in job fairs through audio conference from Delhi.

Wishing the youth a bright future, he said that from January 2019 till now, 1450 job fairs have been organized in the state and employment assistance has been provided to 31217 youth. Apart from this, appointment letters for employment have also been handed out in these fairs on the basis of complete transparency. This appointment letter is also a step towards moving forward in life and a proof of one’s ability.

The Chief Minister said that self-reliance and self-respect are two important pillars for the upliftment and welfare of the youth. To protect the self-respect of the youth, the government has converted the jobs into Mission Merit and has boosted the morale of the youth by giving them government jobs without expenditure slips on the basis of merit. So far, one lakh 14 thousand government jobs have been provided and 56 thousand more jobs will be provided. In this way, the present government will do the work of providing one lakh 70 thousand jobs, in which there will be an average of about 17 to 20 government jobs every year. Apart from this, many works will be done to provide employment to 2 lakh youth.

The Chief Minister said that since 2014 till now, 19 lakh youth have got employment opportunities in private industries also. Under the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana, work has been done to provide financial assistance to 24 lakh 43 thousand youth for setting up self-employment. In this way, lakhs of youth have been benefited under various schemes to establish employment and self-employment in the private sector and it will be extended further also. The Chief Minister said that to save the youth from repeated applications and fees, provision has been made for single registration facility and common eligibility test for competitive examination.

The Chief Minister said that the youth of those families where no one is in government job are being given priority of 5 additional points in the recruitment of raw employees through Skill Employment Corporation.

He said that jobs in the government sector are limited. In such a situation, it is not possible to provide jobs to 100 percent youth. Therefore, the government has taken the initiative to empower the youth by providing them skill development and quality education so that they become job providers instead of job seekers.

The Chief Minister said that Haryana is the first state in the country, where educated unemployed youth are being given 100 hours of honorarium every month under the Saksham Yuva Yojana. Under this, honorary work was provided to about 4 lakh youth. Presently the industries need such youth who can meet the demands of the industries as per the latest technology.

Providing benefits of employment opportunities as per PM’s thinking

The Chief Minister said that India is the largest youth country in the world. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is very proud of his youth power. He says that only with the power of skill development of youth, India can achieve the goal of becoming the third largest economy in the world. As per the thinking of the Prime Minister, the youth are being enabled in skill development to take advantage of new employment opportunities as per the present times. The Chief Minister said that the target is to provide skill training for National Skill Qualification to 2 lakh unemployed youth in the year 2023-24. For this, specific training and courses are being run through Haryana Skill Development Mission. Till now, more than 80 thousand youth have been provided skills under Haryana Skill Development Mission.
