Tuki favours convergence of employable schemes


Tuki exhorted the top echelons of state administration to achieve the target of generating one lakh employment by the end of ongoing five year plan (2012-17) with at least one employment in each family of the sparsely populated state.

The policy formation of state Skill Development Council (SDC) to make people skilled and state Employment Generation Council (EGC) to employ them conceived by him have been well received by the masses who are confident of a change towards the better, the chief minister told the joint meeting of the both councils, which was addressed by J P Roy, Executive Director, National Council on Skill Development (NCSD) here today.

"It is a gigantic task but with policy in place concerted efforts are needed to translate the vision into a reality," the CM said and sought the wholehearted support of the central government in facilitating required funds, official sources informed.

He expressed his confidence that Arunachal Pradesh would be one of the greatest contributors of employment generation as conceived by Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh through the NCSD to generate eight core employments during the corresponding period.

Appreciating Roy and consultant Kumar Vivek for their enlightening presentation on the employment potential, fund flow from various heads including ministries and the success stories of various states, the CM gave an overall picture of the state while suggesting overcoming the lapses and avoiding repetition.

He urged Roy to provide constant guidance and advise to equip the state officers with the desired skills in charting out the route for success.
