The government of Jammu and Kashmir has been monitoring how to generate employment and has introduced many schemes. Recently the Chief Secretary reviewed progress under employment generating schemes; urges departments to redouble efforts to create one lakh self employment opportunities.
If this scheme is implemented on the ground one lakh boys and girls in Jammu and Kashmir will get employment opportunities and it can be a game changer to give youth some relief from unemployment.
He recently chaired a meeting to review the progress under various employment-generating schemes in Jammu and Kashmir.
J&K Rural Livelihood Mission has formed 1,000 self-help groups and will facilitate the constitution of another 3,000 SHGs by September end and if this target is achieved on time these self help groups will be of great help on the ground under the rural economy generation.
Asserting that self-help groups have huge potential in Jammu and Kashmir, he directed the JKRLM to target the establishment of 11,000 self-help groups in the current fiscal by ensuring social mobilization of approximately 2.50 lakh rural women.
JKRLM was also asked to introduce institutional innovations and train the SHGs in the production of products suited to modern-day requirements, besides establishing fruitful forward linkages with the e-markets.
