MENDHAR : India as a country has never had a dearth of manpower. This has been one of the major contributory factor in the rapid rise of India as an industrial power house. The county has seen simultaneous and drastic growth in all fields of economy from agriculture to IT industry no field has been left untouched by the technological advances in the country. But what has been an exponential growth for the country in all fields of livelihood it has been a rather roller coaster ride when comparing the generation of livelihood and skill development amongst various states . Jammu & Kashmir a state which has usually been on the higher side of any comparative index between the States stands lowly in terms of availability of skilled labourers , the same can be attributed to numerous constitutional rulings of the past which did not allow the people of Jammu & Kashmir exposure to labour skills introduced in various fields throughout the country as a result of globalization.
Keeping this in sight Indian Army has taken the reins for inducing and imparting skilled training to the youth af Jammu and Kashmir. So as to uplift the entire state and to bring it at par with states like Punjab, Kerala and Orrissa.
One such step has been taken by Krishna Ghati Brigade located in the Poonch District of Jammu and Kashmir. A free skill training programme cum counselling session will be organised in Krishna Ghati. Under the Skill India Programme numerous courses on the lines of Retail Sales Associate, Assistant Electrician and CRM Domestic Non Voice Course for youth of J & K have been catered for by the efforts of Indian Army in conjunction with the civil authorities.. On 28th and 29th September 21, a counselling session was carried out along the Line of Control in Poonch District which saw a humongous show of strength by the youth . A total of whopping 156 youths were selected via this programme who will now proceed to Ludhiana for their further training , the individuals will be provided with food and accommodation and finally with a job with adequate pay.
The programme will provide rare opportunity of cost free training , 100 % Job Placement assurance , free books, study material and uniform Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it , well One will have to come and see for one self. Post placement support would still be accorded to selected individuals. These steps and programme are being implemented as part of Ministry of Rural Development / J& K Government initiative implemented by Ultimate Energy Resource Pvt Ltd. India Under the Himayat Scheme.
