Telangana government formulates policy to provide more jobs for youth

Estimating that the state will require approximately 50.9 lakh persons by 2022, the state government is preparing a policy for skill development and to train youths for the jobs.

As part of the proposed skill development policy and skill mission, the state government is planning to launch short-term, market-relevant courses for college students, apprenticeships, establishment of placement and tracking cell.

As per the contents in the draft policy, the government has proposed formation of six sectoral pillars for skill development. One for agriculture and allied sectors, another for manufacturing and textile sector, third for pharma and life sciences, fourth for construction works and fifth for IT and the sixth for tourism and hospitality.

Of the six proposed pillars, the state government has already launched National Academy of Construction (NAC) and Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) for the IT sector. The remaining four sectoral pillars for training the youth will be launched as part of the skill development policy, official sources said.

These sectoral pillars will be responsible for implementation and operationalisation of the skill programmes like designing course structures and developing curriculum. It was proposed that the industry should be incentivised to set up training institutions in private public partnership mode in industry clusters.

A governing council will be constituted under the Chief Minister Sri K. Chandrashekar Rao’s leadership to review the mission.
