Mukhyamantri Sikho Kamao Yojana

The Madhya Pradesh state cabinet has given its approval to a new scheme called ‘Mukhyamantri Sikho Kamao Yojana’ (Chief Minister Learn and Earn Scheme), aimed at providing opportunities for unemployed youth in the state. This scheme seeks to equip young individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance their employability and income potential.

Promoting Skill Development in Multiple Sectors

Under the ‘Mukhyamantri Sikho Kamao Yojana,’ the government plans to offer training in around 700 different types of works across various sectors. These sectors include engineering, hotel management, tourism, travel, hospital services, ITI, software development, banking, insurance, accounting, chartered accountancy, financial services, industries, and MSME industry. The wide range of options allows the youth to choose fields aligned with their interests and aptitudes.

Eligibility and Stipend

Youth who have completed their 12th grade, ITI, graduation, or post-graduation are eligible to enroll in the scheme. Participants will receive a monthly stipend based on their educational qualifications. Those who have passed Class 12th will be given Rs 8000 per month, while ITI pass-outs will receive Rs 8,500 per month. Similarly, individuals with a diploma or higher degree will receive Rs 9,000 and Rs 10,000 per month, respectively.

Important Dates and Registration Process

Institutions that will provide skill training to the youth can register from June 7 onwards. The registration process for interested youth will commence from June 15. To ensure a smooth implementation, an online contract will be established between the Yuva Pratishthan (where the youth will work) and the Madhya Pradesh government. This process is expected to be completed by July 31, allowing the youth to begin their training and work from August 1.

Fostering Self-Employment Opportunities

In addition to the ‘Mukhyamantri Sikho Kamao Yojana,’ the Madhya Pradesh government is actively working on creating self-employment opportunities. Regular Employment Days are organized each month, where approximately 2.5 lakh youth receive loans for self-employment. These loans are supported by government guarantees and include interest subsidies. This multifaceted approach aims to cater to the diverse aspirations and entrepreneurial ambitions of the state’s youth.
