Big Achievement
8/5/2022 11:46:40 PM

Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has created history by setting up the highest number of manufacturing and service units in Jammu and Kashmir under its flagship scheme- Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Program (PMEGP) and creating the highest number of jobs in comparison with all other States and UTs in India in the year 2021-22. It’s indeed a big achievement.
With a record 21,640 manufacturing and service units, J&K stands way ahead of bigger States like Uttar Pradesh (12,594 units), Madhya Pradesh (8082 units), Tamil Nadu (5972 units), Karnataka (5877), and Gujarat (4140 units). A massive 1.73 lakh new employment in J&K in 2021-22, under PMEGP alone, is also the highest across all States and UTs in the country.
During the past three years the government has focused on creating self employment schemes for the youth rather than keeping them dependent on the government sector only.
The KVIC has led from the front by creating 1.73 lakh new employment opportunities and has set a record.
J&K standing ahead of bigger states is an achievement which the Commission can claim is its phenomenal success.
After august 5, 2019—when the Centre announced its decision to abrogate Article 370 and bifurcated it into two Union Territories—the government has introduced various self employment schemes like Mumkin, Tejaswani etc. for the youth. Through these schemes many youth have got benefitted and are eking out a decent living.
Recently, the Union Minister of State for Home, informed the Parliament that nearly 30,000 youth have been provided government jobs during the past three years and efforts are on to empower the youngsters in Jammu and Kashmir.
The KVIC has set an example and the other commissions and corporations should take a cue from it.
During the past three years new life has been infused in all the sectors and the ones heading it should ensure that the steps taken by the Centre are implemented in letter and spirit.
Unemployment has always been a big concern in Jammu and Kashmir and the need of the hour is to become self reliant.
Entrepreneurs have a big role to play in bringing J&K at par with the other States and Union Territories across the country.
