HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh government is planning to utilise the services of unemployed educated youth to bring down the number of school dropouts as well as increase literacy rate.

The proposal has been mooted by Finance minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu during a budget preparation exercise with HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao on Thursday. The idea behind the proposal is that it will achieve twin aims. One, it will provide employment to unemployed and second, it would increase literacy rate.

Ramakrishnudu began budget preparation exercise, on Thursday, at secretariat here, which will continue for another two days. On day one, he held meetings with ministers and officials of HRD, health, municipal administration and rural development departments to know their financial requirements in coming fiscal year.

During the consultations with HRD department, it was decided to bring down school dropouts ratio in the State, encourage establishment of cluster and bridge schools in rural areas.

Finance minister will hold consultations with ministers and officials of irrigation, transport, R&B, endowments and revenue departments on Friday.
