Yogi govt offers CM Fellowship Programme in aspirational cities

Wednesday, 06 December 2023 | PNS | Lucknow

On the lines of aspirational development blocks, the Yogi Adityanath government has now started the CM Fellowship Programme in aspirational cities also for which the Urban Development Department has started online registration from Monday.

Uttar Pradesh is the first state in the country to start a development project like the Aspirational City Scheme, which provides an opportunity to the youth and other citizens to actively participate in the state’s urban development, planning, management and monitoring.

The Yogi Adityanath cabinet had recently approved the Aspirational City Plan to create new employment opportunities while improving basic urban facilities as well as education, healthcare and social infrastructure in 100 small cities with a population ranging from 20,000 to one lakh.

The CM Fellowship Programme is an important action plan under the Aspirational City Scheme of Uttar Pradesh, through which youth will be actively involved in urban development, planning, management and monitoring. This opportunity empowers citizens to contribute to independent thought, innovation and development.

“Moreover, the best-performing fellows may get the opportunity for placement in the government sector. The CM Fellowship Programme provides a new opportunity for partnership and skill development and this initiative will play a significant role in the urban development of Uttar Pradesh,” a government spokesman said here on Tuesday.

The focus areas under the scheme will include urban infrastructure, social infrastructure, urban local governance, economic opportunities, climate and disaster resilience.

The applicants can visit the official website of the Urban Development Department (http://anyurban.upsdc.gov.in/) to register online.
