Bringing growth to the State’s IT and electronics industry is a key priority for Uttar Pradesh government. ~ Akhilesh Yadav
Uttar Pradesh is home to a range of world famous traditional industries along with large scale business houses spread over various sectors. However, given the huge human resources coupled with natural assets, Uttar Pradesh holds enormous industrial potential.
In an attempt to generate employment in the state, Uttar Pradesh government has taken several good initiatives and policy measures to benefit the youth of the state.
Flex-Agreements with 11 Units
The investment friendly policies have started yielding results in Uttar Pradesh. The government has signed flex agreements with 11 units with an annual turnover of Rs 100 crore. The government yesterday inked a flex-agreement between Lava International Limited and the UP Skill Development Mission for training and employment. The agreement was signed between Technical Education and Skill Development Minister – Mehboob Ali and Lava International Managing Director Hari Om Rai. The companies would be requested to provide training and jobs to the youth under Uttar Pradesh Skill Development Mission (UPSDM).
Most of these establishments have been set up in Noida which is set to emerge as a hub for electronics and electrical products.
Training to 10,000 Youngsters in Four Years
The government will encourage those companies that have set up base in the state to train the youth and provide them jobs under Skill Development Mission. The Mission is using specialist placements agencies to find new openings for youth not only in Uttar Pradesh but across India and beyond.
Recently, on the World Youth Skill Development Day, 10,000 trained professionals were given employment letters by various companies and institutes. The government has also been roping in expertise of different units to provide job opportunities to youth.
A message from Akhilesh Yadav
It is our mission to usher in an industrial revolution in the State, because calibrated industrial growth in Uttar Pradesh is integral part of Indian economic story. It is paramount for sustained economic growth of the country, for transforming it from an ’emerging economy’ into a global economic power.
