Unemployed, educated youth of Andhra to get Rs. 1,000/month
First state to give financial security until they find a job
Vijayawada, October 1, 2018: The Government of Andhra Pradesh is all set to unveiling the “Mukhyamantri Yuvanestham”, becoming the first state to provide financial security to educated, unemployed individuals until they find an appropriate job. CM Chandrababu Naidu will launch the scheme on Tuesday providing ~1,000 per month to all educated unemployed youth in the state. The state will annually spend about Rs.1,200 crore on the scheme. While the CM will personally hand over cheques to the youth here, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) ministers will simultaneously launch the scheme in all districts of the state.
The money is expected to be spent on skill upgrade to earn good wages, training for self-employment, apprenticeship programme in established industries or for coaching programme for taking competitive exams.
A government spokesman said: “Some 400 beneficiaries will attend the event from 13 districts. Events will be held in all 175 constituencies where local ministers and MLAs will distribute the unemployment allowance certificates to the beneficiaries.” The government expects to immediately benefit about 10 lakh youth, who have registered themselves online on the government website. Though, as per estimates, about 12 lakh youngsters are eligible to benefit from the programme.
The allowance will be credited into the bank account of the beneficiary by the first week of every month. So far, 2 lakh profiles have been verified. While enrolling for the scheme, every individual can choose any three areas of interest. Based on education, the individual will be made to participate in specific tailor-made skill development courses aligned with the area of interest chosen. Besides, support from state universities will be solicited for skill development programmes. The government will sign MoUs with companies to sign up youth as apprentices to give them real time job experience. A job portal will be created with education and skill set details of unemployed youth.
