CAs, engrs selected for jobs under Indira Awas Yojana [Patna] [Times of India]

(Times of India Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) PATNA: Chartered accountants and engineering graduates have been shortlisted for scheme-based contract jobs under Indira Awas Yojana (IAY) with monthly honorarium of Rs 8,000 and Rs 11,000. These jobs were meant for Intermediate pass-outs and simple graduates. There were about six lakh applicants for these jobs, rural development minister Nitish Mishra said on Thursday. They would be given appointment letters by December 31.

Mishra said with a view to strengthening the mechanism of Indira Awas Yojana, the state government would appoint 10,677 gramin awas sahayaks (assistants) at panchayat level, gramin awaas paryavekshaks (supervisors), account assistants and executive assistants (computer operators). All the 900 computer operators posts would be filled by engineering graduates from premier colleges. The government had invited applications from Intermediate passed candidates for gramin awas sahayaks, and graduates for other posts. But a large number of chartered accountants and engineering graduates applied for the posts, leaving no space for ordinary degree holders and Intermediate pass applicants.

The minister said 15 lakh unemployed rural youths in the age group of 18-35 for unreserved category and up to 45 years for scheduled castes and scheduled tribe candidates would be imparted market-linked skill training and placement by 2017. After training, they would be provided employment opportunities in emerging markets.

A database of one lakh youth has been prepared. The digital data of about 42,000 has been put on the site of the rural development department. At present, there are 44 training centres run by nine project implementing agencies in 12 districts of Muzaffarpur, Madhubani, Samastipur, Darbhanga, Supaul, Saharsa, Madhepura, Purnia, Munger, Jamui, Gaya and Nalanda.

Mishra said they are being trained in agri-business, electronics, facility management, furniture, health services, information technology, retail business, textile industry, tourism, transportation and packaging sectors.

According to Mishra, 75% of the trained youths would get jobs in organized sectors while the rest would be engaged in self financed business. The government will keep a track of the trained youths post employment for one year and would extend all help to them to settle in the new environment. The government has set up a migration resource centre for such trained youths at Gurgaon.
