Srinagar, Dec 18 (WD):

Between August 2019 and December 6, 2023, the Government of Jammu & Kashmir took significant steps to address unemployment by filling 31,830 vacancies in the government sector, encompassing positions within J&K Bank. The official data also shed light on the implementation of self-employment schemes, contributing to a cumulative total of 7.4 lakh self-employment and livelihood opportunities created or reinforced since the fiscal year 2021-22, extending up to December 6, 2023.

Furthermore, the government introduced innovative initiatives such as Mumkin, Tejaswani, and Spurring Entrepreneurship under Mission Youth. These initiatives were aimed at facilitating the establishment of business units and sustainable livelihood projects, with a particular focus on the transport sector. Job fairs and placement drives were organized at divisional and district levels, resulting in enhanced job placement opportunities. Over the last two years, a total of 151 job fairs were conducted, engaging 1631 companies.

In addition to employment generation efforts, the government prioritized skill development. For the fiscal year 2023-24, skill development programs were introduced to address skill gaps among the youth. Between 2020 and October 2023, a substantial number of candidates actively engaged in career counseling sessions (4,74,464 candidates) and awareness campaigns for career guidance (2,12,109 candidates). The government’s commitment to governance reforms was evident through transparent large-scale recruitment drives post-reorganization.

To streamline the recruitment process, an Accelerated Recruitment Committee was established in 2020, overseeing public sector recruitment. The “YOGYATA SE ROZGAR” initiative emphasized merit-based selections in a transparent, equitable, and fair manner. Notably, interviews for all posts up to and including Pay Level 5, and some in Pay Level 6, were eliminated to enhance transparency and expedite the recruitment process.
