Rajasthan : Getting benefitted from training imparted at half-a-dozen multi-skill training centres in Bharatpur district of Rajasthan, the youth of the region have found new livelihood avenues and launched self-employment ventures. The emphasis on gainful and sustainable employment has also reduced migration to urban areas.
The training at the centres, monitored by the Rajasthan Skill and Livelihoods Development Corporation (RSLDC), has also ensured availability of technicians and skilled workers for local requirements. With the youngsters making a contribution to family income by taking up multifarious works after training, the Corporation is planning to start more such centres.
RSLDC Bharatpur District Manager Avadhesh Pareek said that about 4,500 youth in the district had been trained in the avocations such as motor winding, refrigeration, servicing of air-conditioners, electric fitting and wiring, mobile phone repairing and computer hardware maintenance during the last two years. The training enables the youths to find jobs or take up self-employment near their native places or the nearby areas. Mr. Pareek said as many as 297 works had been identified in the district for creation of livelihood opportunities through the training centres.
The RSLDC monitors training by experts at the centres, which are run by different non-government organisations, and assists the trainees in their placements and self-employment initiatives. Many of the youths, after getting trained, take up self-employment work at important public places in the nearby towns, where the residents get benefit of their services and do not have to travel to cities for repairs of their gadgets.
In all the training centres, the courses in computer work and sewing for girls have also been started, for which the Rajasthan Knowledge Corporation issues certificates to help the trainees in getting the government jobs.
The training centres have been opened in Kumher, Deeg, Nadbai, Bhusawar, Sewar, Satwas and Bayana towns of the district, while more such centres are planned at Rudawal, Nagar, Gopalgarh and Weir. Mr. Pareek said the areas identified for training include stone carving, furniture making and tulsi mala fabrication as well.
