Govt signs MoUs to impart skill training
Stating that the state needed to train at least one million youths during the 12th Plan period, Patnaik asked the trainers to target the youths in Maoist-hit districts. The objective of imparting training to tribal youths was to discourage them from joining Maoist outfits.
The training would be imparted in textiles/apparel, manufacturing, construction, driving, hospitality, health and as paramedics, security guards, IT/ITES, retail/sales, banking and insurance sectors, said Usha Padhee, director State Employment Mission.
Giving details about the objective of the Mission, Padhee said the programme aimed at enabling youths to become employed through market linked vocational training and enterprise based training.
