131 youth to get training in Jammu, Bangalore under Himayat

Srinagar, Jul 17 (UNI) Under the Himayat scheme, 131 youths, including girls from different parts of Kashmir valley, will be trained in different skills at Jammu and Bangalore, an official spokesman said.

He said Minister for Rural Development, Panchayati Raj Law and Justice Abdul Haq today flagged off the first batch of trainees for skill training and assured employment under the Himayat Scheme from SKICC and Srinagar Airport.
The first batch, comprising 131 youths from different parts of the valley, will be imparted training by the Project Implementing Agencies (PIAs) under different domains in Bangalore and Jammu. The PIAs will later consider placement of these skilled youth in their own companies.
In the first batch that was flagged off by the Minister, 61 youths including 11 girls and 50 boys will be trained as Dialysis Technicians and Emergency Medical Technicians by PIA Apollo MedSkills Ltd at Bangalore.
The Minister flagged off the batch at Sheik-ul-Alam International Airport Srinagar. Another group of the batch, comprising 70 youth, including nine girls, will be trained in Banking and Retail sector by the Manpower Group Services India Ltd at Jammu.
The Minister flagged off the batch from Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC). The government will bear all the financial expenses of the training, including lodging, boarding, transport and the fees.
Before flagging off both the groups, the Minister interacted with the students and urged them to work hard during their training period, so that the companies hire them for the jobs.
He said a skilled youth can never be an unemployed because there is a huge demand of skilled youth in the corporate market in different sectors.
Mr Haq said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti launched the scheme earlier this year with an aim to train the unemployed youth in different sectors so that they get employment at earliest.
He said around three projects have been sanctioned by JKSRLM. He said 9751 candidates are to be covered in the present round of four project applications and that first installment has been released to the PIAs including Surya, Apollo and Manpower for the mobilization of candidates which is under progress.
The Minister, while addressing the students, shared the vision and mission of the Government for raising skilled manpower under various skill development programmes.
Mr Haq said Himayat is a skill development cum placement programme for unemployed youth in J&K under the umbrella of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gramin Koushalaya Yojna (DDU-GKY), Union Ministry of Rural Development with focus on sustainable employment for rural poor youth and JKSRLM has been entrusted with the job of training and placing over 1.24 lakh candidates with financial allocation of Rs 1601.51 crore for a period of three years.
He said it is a challenge before the state government to train the youth of the state in various skills, so that they are able to earn their livelihood.
He hoped that the initiatives taken by the state government, with the support of the Union Ministry of Rural Development, would yield desired results within the shortest period of time.
He said the training of selected youth will be rolled out as early as possible by the end of June, 2017.
