UP Govt launches ‘Mission Rojgar’ Abhiyan from today for 50 lakh jobs opportunities
With the commitment to provide employment and self-employment to the youth of Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi Adityanath government will be launching Mission Rojgar Abhiyan from Today, December 5, 2020.
The occasion will be marked by handing over appointment letters to 39,650 assistant teachers by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath .
UP government’s Mission Rojgar is a programme under which the government aims at providing jobs to at least 50 lakh youths till March 2021. The scheme will be targeted largely at those who lost their jobs during the Covid-19 economic slowdown.
In this regard, Chief Secretary Rajendra Kumar Tiwari has issued guidelines to the Revenue Board, agricultural production commissioner and infrastructural and industrial development commissioner, all additional chief secretaries, principal secretary, secretaries, all departmental heads, divisional commissioners and district magistrates.
“Tiwari said that under the programme, the government would also help people become self-employed, linking it with the Atmanirbhar Bharat scheme of the Centre.”
Tiwari said under the Mission Rojgar Abhiyan, various departments, organisations, voluntary organisations, corporations, councils, boards, local bodies, development authorities and industrial development authority, will work in coordination to create opportunities of employment and self-employment through skill training and apprenticeship.
Besides providing employment and self-employment to youth, employment and self-employment opportunities would also be created by providing skill training, apprenticeship, allotment of land, giving various types of licenses and permissions, he added.
For making the campaign successful, all departments, organisations and authorities will set up help desks. At the help desks, proper details of programmes related to employment, self-employment, skills training and employment through self-employment will be made available.
A database of the employment created under this campaign will also be created and an app and portal will also be developed for this. In addition, all the directorates, corporations, boards, commissions, etc. will also nominate a nodal officer for their departments.
All the programmes of the campaign will be conducted by the industrial development commissioner and a high level committee headed by the chief secretary will monitor the campaign on a monthly basis.
In addition, there will be a committee in every district under the chairmanship of the district magistrate that will prepare an action plan at the district level. The Directorate of Training and Employment will also be organising employment fairs in collaboration with private industries. The cases of employment that have been halted for some reason will also be disposed of.
It may be mentioned here that the state government is training youth to assist them in getting employment at district as well as global levels and for this, the Uttar Pradesh Skill Development Mission is providing international-level courses to 50,000 youth through the online learning platform Course.
