Recently LG Manoj Sinha under Mission Youth has accorded approvals to a host of schemes, to be launched soon, in various sectors which will make a greater impact on the Youth engagement and Livelihood generation programmes in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir.
To begin with, the government has decided to start two state-of-the-art coaching centres in Jammu & Srinagar to impart coaching for Civil Services and other competitive exams under PARVAAZ, a livelihood generation scheme for the local youth.
Similarly the Jammu and Kashmir administration through Mission Youth will provide financial assistance to dental surgeons to start their own clinic. In the first phase, 400 dental surgeons and 800 paramedics will be selected for a specially tailored self-employment scheme.
Emphasizing on effective execution of the programme, the Lt Governor has recently directed the concerned officers to put dedicated focus on effective implementation of youth-oriented schemes on-ground. He further called for convergence and linkages of existing schemes with the proposed ones to yield better results in Jammu and Kashmir.
If these schemes are implemented on the ground, the youth of Jammu and Kashmir will not only shape up their future but they will also be the contributors for the sustainable development as they can utilize different self employment schemes and can even provide jobs to dozens of people by being the torch bearers.
