Rajasthan colleges to launch self-employment courses

August 23, 2014

Rajasthan will soon have self-employment courses at college-level to help the youth become more employable and encourage them to start their own businesses, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has said.

"In BJP's previous rule (2003-2008), a major programme of Rajasthan Skill Development was initiated. It brought fruits then and youths were linked with jobs", PTI quoted Raje as saying during her "Sarkar Apke Dwar's Jansunvaee" in Udaipur division's Choti Sadari town.

The self-employment courses would be started in colleges so that youths could start their business with a group of four-five unemployed men so that they could provide jobs to others too when business gets established, a CMO release, quoting her, said.

Now Prime Minister Narendra Modi would give it a final shape, and Rajasthan already has started livelihood mission for unemployed youths in a bigger way, Raje said.

She appealed to MPs and MLAs to provide ambulances to hospitals from their area FUNDS.

She also asked the district administration to prepare a list of unutilised buildings in the state so that these could be used for other purposes.

She also directed officials to contain illegal mining in the region.

Raje accompanied with senior bureaucrats also made surprise inspection of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Anganbari Kendra, Kisan Seva Kendra, and Badi Dam, it said.
