The Rajasthan government has made the decision to concentrate more on providing the youth with options for job and skill development, among other things. The youth were the main emphasis of the state budget, which was recently presented by Chief minister Ashok Gehlot, who also holds the finance portfolio.
Gehlot said, “Today’s young generation needs employment the most as well as skill and ability building and personality enhancement.” A senior state official said that the state took various initiatives for the youth to give jobs, education, skill development, and personality development, while providing specifics on the Budget recommendations.
A fund for the development and welfare of young people of Rs 500 crore was allocated as part of a youth strategy. According to this policy, Rs 200 crore would be used to increase productivity, provide skill training, and provide resources that are employment-oriented.
Rs 200 crores will be allocated for education, scholarships, and other associated resources, while Rs 100 crores would be used for general personality development. According to the source, more than 142,000 appointments to government jobs have been made over the four years of the Ashok Gehlot administration, and more than 181,000 more are currently being processed.
Mega job fairs were held throughout the state during the fiscal year 2022–2023, and almost 30,000 young people received employment as a result. He noted that 100 massive job fairs will be held in the upcoming fiscal year, in addition to campus placement at prestigious universities.
Comparable results were obtained by the Mukhyamantri Anuprati Coaching Yojana, which was launched in 2023–2024 for students preparing for professional programmes and competitive exams. From the initial 15,000, the number will expand to 30,000 young people.
In addition to providing students who are studying for competitive exams with a residential facility, Vivekanand Youth Hostels will be constructed in each district headquarters. 100 students would be able to stay in each hostel.
For a cost of Rs 350 crore, the state government intends to establish the Rajiv Gandhi Aviation University in Jaipur, which will include a pilot training school as well as programmes in flight attendant training, aircraft maintenance engineering, and aviation management.
