Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 12: At a time when the government has launched an online portal for the creation of employment in erstwhile state, it is ironic that the basic infrastructure needed for industrialization and employment generation is scandalously missing.
As per the reports coming to the fore, LG administration in Jammu and Kashmir has launched the portal 'AVSAR'. The youth will have to register themselves on this portal, after which their resume will be shared with the companies and the companies will select the youth according to their need.
Meanwhile, social media is abuzz over the incongruity between the reality and the claims that are being made. Netizens questioned government’s move over doing such patch works, asking how the online portal could address the crises when little is being done by the government to initiate industrial growth in Jammu and Kashmir. “Do you really think that industries will come to Jammu and Kashmir? How and why should they come here? What infrastructure is being provided to them by this regime? What facilities are being given to them? Nothing! Absolutely nothing. One wonders why youth are being hoodwinked here,” asked a netizen here.
He was referring to the government’s recent decision to go for massive power cuts in industrial units of Jammu that has left the industrialists in doldrums and there were fears of those working in these industries to be losing jobs and industrial production witnessing a dip.
There is a demand of 3100 MW of electricity every day. In contrast, only 1937 MW could be made available in the state. In a bid to further hound the already crisis-ridden business fraternity, Orders have been issued to curtail power supplies in industrial areas in Jammu from 6 to 9 am Samba, Kathua, and Udhampur from 5 to 8 pm. The PDD as per the reports has directed the Jammu division to ensure consumption below 870 MW and Kashmir below 1150 MW. It is being informed that the way the temperatures have surged rapidly in the last few days, the state has consumed 400 MW more power from the northern grid. According to official sources, the consumption of 785 MW in Jammu and 1152 MW in Kashmir has been recorded on Thursday morning. Northern Grid as per the reports is continuously giving instructions to Jammu and Kashmir to follow grid discipline to get electricity.
Reports inform that the PDD as per the reports has directed the Jammu division to ensure consumption below 870 MW and Kashmir below 1150 MW.
One wonders now how could the industrial growth and job creation would be ensured at a place where there is no certainty even in power supplies to the industrial areas. The government must walk the talk.
