Govt to provide jobs to 26,000 youths in a week

Wednesday, 25 May 2022 | PNS | Lucknow

As a part of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s initiative to provide employment or self-employment opportunities to at least one person in each family, the state government will provide employment to over 26,000 youths in a week through ‘mega job fairs’.

Under Mission Rozgar, ‘mega job fairs’ are being held in 14 divisional headquarters of Uttar Pradesh from May 23 and will continue till next week. “In Rozgar Melas organised in urban and rural areas, the youth with technical education and otherwise would be provided job placements. More than 315 companies have been invited to the Melas and representatives of various companies will employ jobless youth,” a government official said in Lucknow on Tuesday.

The official said that in one such Mela at Gorakhpur, as many as 1,406 candidates were provided employment through about 24 companies including prominent ones like L&T and Ashok Leyland on Monday. The Rozgar Melas at Azamgarh, Saharanpur, Aligarh were organised on Tuesday, while similar Melas will be organised at Ayodhya and Basti on Wednesday and in Lucknow, Ghaziabad and Jhansi on Thursday. These Melas will be held at various locations in the state till May 30.

“The objective of such employment fairs is to provide a platform to communicate between the employers and employable or job-seeking youth. Through such Melas, skilled youth and local youth will get employment in a hassle-free manner,” the official said.

The state government is also mulling to make a ‘family card’ for every family in the state to fulfil its commitment of providing employment or self-employment opportunities to at least one member in the next five years. Under various schemes of self-employment during the first term of the Yogi government, work has been done to connect about three crore people with employment.
