The State Government has set a target to train 1.7 lakh youths during the current financial year out of which the State Employment Mission will impart training to 60,000 youths.
Fourteen training partners have been put on job and 62 training centres have been set up in different districts, sources said. More training partners will be finalised within the next couple of months. Mobilisation camps have been organised in various districts and around one lakh candidates have been enlisted for different training. Till now, agencies like Skylark, Grass Academy, Globsyn Skills, Britti Prasikshyan, L&T, Seri Sahaj, Gram Tarang, Basix Academy, Team Lease, CIDC, IL & FS, Empower Pragati and Institute of Computer Academy have been selected as training partners.
Collectors have been asked to keep places ready for setting up training centres. They have also been asked to provide government building if available or hire private buildings on reasonable rent-price for setting up the training centres. Besides, collectors have also been directed to organise job fair in each district by the end of the current financial year.
The State Government has also decided to launch Kausal Vikash Yojana in different districts. Under the Yojana, the blocks not having Government ITI will be eligible to get an ITI on PPP mode. Collectors will make site selection for these institutions. New polytechnic institutions have already been constructed in different districts. The admission in these institutions will start from this year.
Such activities will help prepare the rural youths to avail better job opportunities.
