A special Drive for unemployed youth especially SC/ST candidates under Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP) of Kashmir will be started from 02nd October on the occasion of ‘Gandhi Jayanti’ at PMTC, KVIC, Pampore. The programme is a part of the overall initiative for addressing economic issues in J&K. While steps are being taken by the State and Central Government to revive economic activity in J&K, PMEGP programme is a special initiative to address the needs of the educated unemployed in J&K. PMEGP program is focused on youth of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K). The aim is to provide skills and job opportunities to the youth.
It was observed that youth from J&K were unable to find employment in many fields as either they were unaware of the opportunity in the various field or the fields were unaware of the talent pool that existed in J&K.
The principal focus of the PMEGP programme is to create an ecosystem that would bridge this gap of unemployment.
Giving details about the programme Shri Anil Kumar Sharma, Assistant Director, Incharge Kashmir Province said that besides special drive under PMEGP various other programmes will be conducted on the occasion of “GANDHI JAYANTI”.
