Ahead of the state elections due to be held close to general elections, Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu rolled out a slew of schemes.
The government has launched ‘Mukhya Mantri-Yuva Nestham’, a scheme through which an allowance of Rs 1000 per month will be provided to unemployed youth in the state. The decision was taken in a state cabinet meeting held in Amaravathi.
Highlights of the scheme:
Under the scheme, an allowance of Rs 1000 per month will be provided to unemployed youth in the state.
About 12 lakh youths in the age group of 22-35 years will get the benefit of the scheme. The registration for the scheme will start mid-August.
The scheme will be extended to all those eligible even if there is more than one beneficiary in a family.
The money will be credited directly into the bank accounts through biometric authentication.
The government will not only provide financial help to the unemployed youth but also provide training and help them develop their skills.
The data of unemployed youth in the state will be made available for industries and companies searching for young talent.
