Over 1.7 crore youth in terror-affected, rural areas trained under National Rural Livelihoods Mission: Govt

Feb 7 (AZINS) More than 1.70 crores rural poor youth across the country have been trained under the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) till January 2019, the government said Thursday.

Replying to a query raised in the Lok Sabha on imparting skill development training to rural youth living in Naxal-infested and terrorism-affected areas, Minister of State for Rural Development Ram Kripal Yadav said, "The government is implementing the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY), a placement-linked skill development programme for rural poor youth under the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) all over the country."

"Under the DDU-GKY, a special initiative called Roshni has been launched that takes into account the particular situations in 27 Left wing extremist-affected districts," he said.

In a written reply to the query, the minister told the Lok Sabha, "Every candidate undergoing training under DDU-GKY is given mandatory basic training in Information Technology for 80 Hours. During the year 2018-19 (upto 31st January 2019), 1,76,630 candidates have been provided training." He said the government aims to train two lakh youth under the programme during the financial year 2018-19.

The maximum number of youth proposed to be trained are from Uttar Pradesh (21,417 youth), followed by Odisha (20,153), Bihar (17,236) and Jammu and Kashmir (14,414 youth).

"Under this initiative, skill development shall be a mandatory residential course with 40 percent coverage to women candidates. Roshni is oriented towards addressing the infrastructure, education, and health deficiencies in these areas, and leveraging the availability of natural resources and traditional skills and knowledge.

"A special scheme, Himayat, is being operated for Jammu and Kashmir under DDU-GKY. This is a 100 percent centrally funded scheme implemented with the help of the state government by a dedicated Himayat Mission Management Unit located in both Srinagar and Jammu," the minister said.
