UP’s Mission Rozgar: Over 50,000 CSCs opened, target to employ 4.5 lakh youth by March 2021
UP CM Yogi Adityanath has set a target of opening 1.5 lakh CSCs in the rural areas in the state in 4 months. Besides this, he has also set a target to provide self-employment to about 4.5 lakh rural youth.
New Delhi: In 3 years of regime, Yogi government has launched several schemes including Mission Shakti, BC Sakhi and others with an aim to engage and employ people from the lowermost strata of the society.
Now, the state government has turned its focus on strengthening network of Common Service Centres in the state. In last two months, around 90,000 youths have shown interest in CSCs while more than 50,000 centres have already been opened, providing monetary benefit to 258 services of 35 government departments. Soon, 36,919 CSCs will start functioning as they have received permission from the state government.
If the project witnesses successful implementation, it will go a long way in creating tremendous self-employment opportunities in the sector. Chief Minister, himself a tech savvy person, likes to lead by example as he often reviews files of several government departments through a laptop.
CM Yogi accelerated the setting up of the CSC which aims to provide government services to the villagers and thus providing self-employment to educated youths in the rural areas of the state.
It is to be mentioned that the CM Yogi had set a target of opening 1.5 lakh CSCs in the rural areas in the state in 4 months. Besides this, he has also set a target to provide self-employment to about 4.5 lakh rural youths as he believes that with the opening of CSCs in the rural areas, villagers will not have to come to the cities to avail the services of the state government.
Target of 4.5 lakh job opportunities at 1.5 lakh CSCs
This will not only save the money and time of the villagers but the CSCs will also create opportunities to provide self-employment in the villages. The CSCc not only aims in provided self-employment to at least two rural youths but also generate good income. With this thought, the CM had prepared a work plan for the third phase of the CSCs and under this, it was decided to open two CSCs instead of one in the rural areas.
According to the officials of the department of electronics and information technology, the target of opening 1.5 lakh CSCs in the rural areas will be met by March.
Now, as many as 89,945 youths have come forward to open CSCs in just two months as the youths have started earning better by the scheme prepared on the instructions of CM Yogi and due to which, the target of opening 1.5 lakh CSCs will also be achieved by 15th March.
