Appointment letters to 27,842 skilled youth of the State in the private sector against a target of 25,000, launch of State Skill Policy, Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the State and five national-international training providers, felicitation of Best Employers and Best Training Providers for the drive, and bucket of admirations of the government blended with a few most remarkable concerns in the field of skill development by national and international industry stalwarts in presence of Union and State cabinet ministers, MPs, MLAs, hundreds of delegates and thousands of job-getters was how the State government successfully organised first ever Skill Summit in State in Harivansh Tana Bhagat Indoor Stadium in Khelgaon on Friday on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

As Chief Guest of the occasion Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas and Skill Development Dharmendra Pradhan praised the Jharkhand government for its willingness to take all central government plans seriously and trying its best to become number-one in their implementation. He said that the government’s solid steps towards skilling the youth of State and providing them jobs were testimony of the sincerity of the government.

“The (State) government is planning to start 24 Mega Skill Centres which is indeed a visionary thinking. Skill development is synonymous to connecting world modernity with culture of India. It is pleasant to see those years becoming history when states replicated plans formulated in New Delhi. Now the situation is other way round and many plans launched in Jharkhand are being replicated in other states,” said Pradhan where senior officials of government were also present.


Not only Pradhan but industry stalwarts like Maruti Suzuki Executive Advisor MM Singh, VLCC Chairperson and Beauty and Wellness SSC CEO Vandana Luthra, Apollo Hospitals Joint Director Sangeeta Reddy, ITE Singapore Director Lim Boon Tiong, Media and Entertainment Sector Skill Council CEO and veteran film-maker Subhash Ghai, ?Carlson Hotels Worldwide Asia Pacific Executive Vice President (South Asia) KB Kachru, Queensland Trade Commissioner Gitesh Agrawal, Orient Craft Limited CMD Sudhir Dhingra, Rajeev Srivastava (Welspun) and many others also praised Jharkhand for presenting such a huge opportunity like skilled manpower for industries across the sector.


Chief Minister Raghubar Das said, on the occasion, that the government was committed to eliminate poverty from the State and urged job-getting youth to work passionately and earn good name for the State. He announced setting up Videsh Bhawan in Ranchi for those going abroad for job. “The government will also give Rs 5 Lakh as compensation to the family members to those who meet with any unfortunate accident abroad on job. Government in collaboration with private sector has created an eco system for job and we will be providing over 1 lakh jobs to youth next year,” said the CM.


Recalling his past, the CM said that he was well aware of the sufferings of the families with unemployed youth. “This is why the government kept Rs 700 crore corpus aside exclusively to be spent over skill development programmes during current financial year which will only increase in coming years. I am sure we can make Jharkhand one of the most developed states in country on the back of youth power,” said the CM.


Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha said on the occasion that tourism sector was one of the most emerging sectors of job creation and opportunities in State. “Jharkhand is very much on the path of development and we have witnessed three-fold increase in passengers flying to Delhi from Ranchi just in one year. Process of new terminal at Birsa Munda Airport is underway and we will soon see flights taking off for abroad destinations from Ranchi soon,” said Sinha.


The government also signed MoUs with UK Skills, Queensland Skills and Education Consortium (QSEC), National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), G4S Security, Siesta Hospitality Pvt Ltd, JBM Auto, Cotton Blossom and Lucky Yarn for training and job creation on the occasion.
