On the occasion of Republic Day, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Saturday announced the launch of the ‘Yuva Swabhiman Yojana’ for youths from the economically weaker sections in urban areas.
“Under this scheme, 100 days of employment will be provided to youths from economically weaker sections in urban areas. They will also be given skill training,” he said.
Kamal Nath said while those in rural areas get employment under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA), the urban poor youth are left out. This scheme will effectively cover them.
