Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY):

  1. provides  mandatory assured placements for all trained candidates in regular jobs
  2. mandates 50% coverage of SC/ST in the scheme
  3. is implemented as Public Private Partnership(PPP) project

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [B] Only 2 & 3

Gram Panchayat will play a key role in generating awareness about the program, facilitate mobilization of candidates, and assist in job melas and in tracking candidate placements. The scheme provides for social inclusion through mandatory coverage of 50% for Scheduled caste and Scheduled Tribe candidates and 15% for Minority candidates at national level. DDU-GKY also provides for a mandatory coverage of 33% women candidates in all the projects. First statement is incorrect because the scheme provides mandatory assured placement to 75% of the trained candidates.
