Govt aiming to create institutional mechanism for grooming youngsters: LG
Seeks support of investors in creating robust infrastructure, employment avenues for youth

EARLY TIMES REPORT

SRINAGAR, Oct 31: A day long workshop on Youth Engagement and Outreach in Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir organized by J&K government was today inaugurated by Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha at SKICC here.
The Workshop was attended by top Industry Heads from Ashok Leyland, ICICI foundation, Bombay Stock Exchange, Universities, IIMs/IITs and Policy Analysts from across the country.
The outreach programme is aimed to create opportunities and infrastructure for engaging youth, addressing their issues and concerns and empower them in entrepreneurship, self-employability and create livelihood for the youth in a well curated and holistic manner.
Addressing the gathering of Policy Analysts and Corporate heads of different organisations during the inaugural session of the event, the Lt Governor said that the idea behind this Youth Engagement and Outreach workshop is to create institutional mechanism to empower and groom our youngsters and to make them valuable for J&K as well as the country.
He remarked that in the past many initiatives were taken to engage the youth here but all of them somehow fell short of meeting all the requirements so there is a need to have an umbrella programme that dovetails all the resources meant for this purpose to achieve the goal of youth empowerment and youth development.
On the occasion, he also announced that a seed fund of Rs 200 crores has been earmarked for creating initial infrastructure and institutional support for meeting the initial needs of this programme. This amount, he said, would be used to create a 'Centre of Excellence' and infrastructure in districts to realize our goals of making youth the leaders of success. He sought support of the national-level investors and industry experts in creating robust infrastructure and employment avenues for the youth of the UT. We not only need your investments but your expertise as well, which will help us realize the dreams of prosperity, he added.
Highlighting UT Government’s efforts in promoting entrepreneurship; the Lt Governor said that within one month, two aspiring entrepreneurs from each 4290 panchayats of J&K were selected for handholding and about 10 thousand people have been provided loans through the J&K Bank to establish their businesses.
He also stressed upon the need to create a major platform to cater to our talent pool and resources to our industrial, skill and modern technological gaps.
Almost 65 percent of Jammu Kashmir population is under the age of 35 years. So, on one hand we have a demographic dividend like the rest of the country, but on the other we have faced many challenges; systemic unemployment and joblessness along with the absence of holistic development of the youth, the Lt Governor maintained.
The Lt Governor said that the UT Government is aiming to build a robust infrastructure for our youth in all 6 identified focus areas and to create more favourable factors to bridge the gap between alternate scenario and current growth rate in this Union Territory. We need both your investment and expertise to achieve this.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Secretary, BVR Subrahmanyam said that the Jammu and Kashmir Government is aiming to create a one-stop center where all the issues of youth are addressed, be it their education, their scholarships, their jobs, their skills or their entrepreneurship or self-employment.
During the workshop, Ashok Leyland proposed establishment of rural schools where school dropouts could be admitted to learn skills and trained to deliver in trades which are their areas of interest.
Other industrialists and bureaucrats also proposed several suggestions to include in the model formulated by J&K Government regarding Mission Youth.
