Rural poor youth to be trained for jobs by Rural Development Ministry

Decks have been cleared by the Ministry Of Rural Development to train and provide job placement for around 80,000 youth from the rural poor families across the country. Under the Ministry of Rural Development’s scheme of Special Projects under Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY) now restructured as National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM), 14 projects have been approved by the Government for skill training leading to placement of rural BPL youth in urban settings.

Government Skill Development Programs

These projects involve a total investment of about Rs. 165 crore of which 75% (approximately Rs. 125 crore) is to be funded by the Central Government. The remaining investment is to be made by the training partners or employers. These projects will cover about 80000 rural BPL youth for short term training/ skill development leading to their placement in entry level jobs in apparel, construction, computer based accounting,  security services, retail and other sectors.

National Institute of Rural Development

The Government has identified National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD), Hyderabad, NABARD Consultancy Services Pvt. Ltd. (NABCONS), Mumbai, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), or the concerned District Rural Development Agency (DRDA)  as fund routing, coordinating and monitoring agencies on behalf of the Ministry of Rural Development. The initiative will have a long lasting impact on the lives of the youth as well as their families and further the commitment of the Government towards the aam admi.
