Vision document for JKEDI approved by Governing body

Srinagar, Oct 6 (UNI) The Governing body of the Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) on Friday approved vision document, an official spokesman said here this evening.

He said Chief Secretary BB Vyas Friday chaired the 20th meeting of the Governing body of JKEDI.

The Governing Body deliberated and approved the implementation of the Vision Document for JKEDI prepared by the Committee.
As per the vision document, JKEDI will up-scale its activities so that it can facilitate the establishment of at-least 10,000 enterprises and self employment units per annum. This should help the state in absorbing a minimum of 50,000 youth in labour market locally.
As women folk is under-represented in various entrepreneurial activities, JKEDI will work towards enhanced women participation in such activities.
JKEDI will also create a mechanism wherein it can facilitate the meshing of skill requirements with skilling facilities by way of establishing some Model Skill Developments Centres at various strategic locations throughout the State. Up-scaling would be done by engaging Training Partners from the private sector to fulfil the market needs, if the situation so demands.
Observing that vision document should guide our future plans for developing an entrepreneurial culture in the state, Chief Secretary asked JKEDI to align its activities with this vision document.
He asked JKEDI to undertake an independent evaluation of all the training programmes and also assess their quality.
He also emphasised on creating an institutional monitoring mechanism for post training tracking of the youth for a period of three years.
Director JKEDI, Dr M I Parray briefed the Governing Body about the progress and performance of the Institute for the financial year 2016-17 and 2017-18. Action taken report on the decisions taken in the 19th Governing Body Meeting was also reviewed.
