In order to deal with the ever remaining challenge of finding the right tradesperson for your regular household chores and at the same time generate more employability for Skill India certified workforce, Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship discussed the partnership with UrbanClap Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. (URBANCLAP), one of the leading mobile marketplaces for local services.

Urbanclap co founders Abhiraj Bhal and Varun Khaitan, today, met the Hon’ble Minister today and proposed to work with MSDE by directly absorbing skilled manpower across 10 identified trades. Urbanclap proposed to directly work with 8 Sector Skill Councils (SSC) – Automotive, Beauty & Wellness, Construction, Domestic Worker, Electronics & hardware, Furniture & Fitting, Paints & Coatings and Plumbing.

Urbanclap, during the meeting, also proposed to promote entrepreneurship by providing skilled people, under Skill India Mission, access to customers at zero cost along with access to working capital loans and insurance. It is estimated that expected workforce requirement will quadruple by end of next calendar year. There is a clear requirement for manpower in job roles such as beauty, spa, plumbing, electrician, carpenters, AC technicians, Refrigerator technicians, Washing Machine & Microwave technicians, painters, masons, yoga and fitness instructors and domestic help.

MSDE has formed a joint working group to ensure the delivery on this partnership so that the skilled workforce can benefit from it at the earliest. Commenting on the partnership, Shri Rudy said, “There is a huge demand in the market and we have ready skilled workforce trained, assessed and certified under Skill India. Partnerships like these will help us create the right linkages for jobs for the trained youth and better their livelihoods. The SSCs and ITI institutes will work closely with private sector players like UrbanClap and ensure that we bridge this gap between supply and demand as early as possible.”

“Skill India will partner with more such portals in the future to chalk out a path to growth for its skilled and certified workforce. Direct Opportunities and linkages such as these will also ensure that middlemen do not take away a part of the profits leaving only the basic wage for the skilled workforce. The person can earn complete profit in return for his skills,” he further added.

UrbanClap has plans to expand in more cities and it is estimated that UrbanClaps’s expected workforce requirement will quadruple by the end of next calendar year (Dec 2018). As per the understanding, NSDC will provide a database of skilled workforce via Skill Database Management System (“SDMS”) to UrbanClap relevant to the sectors they cater to. UrbanClap in turn will validate the data and create opportunities of employment to serve various customers who seek service of professionals. Through UrbanClap mobile App and website, individuals can search for the right trained/skilled professionals, for their work and get quality and standards in services.

In a significant move towards promoting education and inclusivity, the Indian Army has introduced the ‘Jammu and Kashmir Special Scholarship Scheme 2023.’ This initiative falls under the Army’s ‘Sadbhavana’ operation and aims to provide educational opportunities to underprivileged students in the region.

Under this newly launched scholarship program, a total of 146 students hailing from various districts in the valley will receive invaluable support for their education. Each student will be granted a scholarship worth Rs 1.2 lakh, as confirmed by a spokesperson from the defense sector. The universities affiliated with this program will cover the remaining expenses for these students, and there are 12 such universities where they will pursue their higher education.

The primary objective of this program is to bridge the gap between privileged and underprivileged students by offering scholarships and financial aid to those who demonstrate exceptional potential and dedication in the field of education. In a highly competitive selection process, a significant number of students from Kupwara district applied for the scholarship. Following written tests and interviews, 34 outstanding students were chosen to be a part of this transformative program. The selected students received a warm send-off organized by the Army division stationed in Kupwara at Drugmullah. The ceremony not only celebrated their academic achievements but also aimed to inspire students from marginalized communities to pursue higher education and actively contribute to the development of a self-reliant India.

“The scholarship scheme is gaining widespread popularity, and we anticipate that many more students will take advantage of this joint initiative by the Indian Army and affiliated universities,” stated the spokesperson. This initiative embodies the Indian Army’s commitment to empowering underprivileged students and fostering a brighter future for the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.

Education Ministry Kicks Off Anti-Tobacco Campaign with a “Promise To Protect”

Published

on

On the auspicious occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the Indian Ministry of Education has initiated the ‘Promise To Protect’ campaign, a robust effort aimed at combating the growing menace of youth tobacco addiction. Under this ambitious campaign, educators from all corners of the nation have pledged their commitment to maintain tobacco-free environments within their schools.

The ‘Promise to Protect’ digital campaign, launched on this significant day, is a solemn vow to shield students and young generations from the harmful grasp of tobacco. This initiative draws inspiration from the alarming statistics revealed by the Global Youth Tobacco Survey-4 (2019), which indicates that a staggering 38% of cigarette smokers, 47% of bidi smokers, and 52% of smokeless tobacco users in India begin their tobacco consumption journey before their 10th birthday. Aligned with the government’s unwavering commitment to fostering tobacco-free educational institutions, this campaign’s primary objective is to prevent the youth from falling victim to tobacco addiction.

Over 1,000 educators from across the nation attended the digital conference and witnessed participants taking an online pledge to safeguard their schools and students against the perils of tobacco. Steering this impactful event was the renowned actor and presenter, Karanvir Bohra. Esteemed speakers such as Sanjay Kumar, Secretary of School Education; Dr. Joseph Emmanuel, Director of Academics (CBSE); Dr. Pankaj Chaturvedi of Tata Memorial Hospital; and Dr. Vishal Rao, Group Director for Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at HCG Cancer Centre, shared their insights on this critical issue. Additionally, individuals who had suffered due to tobacco use shared their harrowing journeys, shedding light on the devastating consequences of tobacco addiction. Teachers also shared their personal stories related to tobacco use, underscoring the campaign’s gravity.

Educators at the conference expressed their unwavering commitment to incorporating anti-tobacco education into their curriculum, recognizing it as an essential component of their mission.

Drawing inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings, Karanvir Bohra highlighted the significance of collective efforts in securing a tobacco-free India for future generations. The conference also commemorated India’s journey towards becoming a “Nasha Mukt Bharat” (a drug-free nation), a government initiative that commenced on the same date in 2008, emphasizing the role of teachers as heralds of a tobacco-free future.

This impactful campaign was executed in partnership with the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases, with the active participation of 21 civil society organizations in mobilizing pledges nationwide. Together, they are committed to realizing a brighter, tobacco-free future for the nation’s youth.

Young Indians are the Leading Advocates of the Swachh Bharat Movement

Published

Jagran Josh

Union Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and Electronics & IT, Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, actively participated in the “Swachhata Hi Seva” campaign at New Delhi’s Safdarjung Railway Station, as part of the ‘Ek Tareekh, Ek Ghanta, Ek Saath’ Shramdaan activity. Joining him were Shri Atul Kumar Tiwari, Secretary, MSDE, senior officials from the Ministry, and members of the general public, all uniting their efforts to contribute towards creating a garbage-free India.

To commemorate Mahatma Gandhi’s 154th birth anniversary, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi called for a nationwide, citizen-centric movement, “Ek Tareekh, Ek Ghanta, Ek Saath,” which served as a clarion call for government officials and citizens alike to volunteer for a one-hour cleanliness drive called “Shramdaan for Swachhata” on October 1. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship led the cleanliness drive across its ecosystem, including Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendras (PMKKs), National Skill Training Institutes (NSTIs), National Institute of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (NIESBUD), and the Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE) in Guwahati and other centres in the northeastern region.

The cleanliness drive encompassed Sarojini Nagar Market, Commonwealth Games Park, Safdarjung Railway Station (track and surrounding area), and other locations in New Delhi. A total of 1345 events created in the dedicated portal for the “Shramdaan for Swachhata” drive were conducted across institutions nationwide.

Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar commented, “Over the past 9 years, PM Modi has spearheaded much-needed initiatives to reshape our collective behaviour as citizens after decades of challenges. It’s heartening to witness so many Indians enthusiastically participating in and believing in the Swachh Bharat Mission’s vision. This shift in behaviour has proven invaluable, especially during challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Young Indians are the primary champions of the Swachh Bharat movement. They have embraced the responsibility of furthering PM Modi’s vision. From the Red Fort’s ramparts, PM Shri Narendra Modi launched this mission to transform India into a Swachh Bharat. It aimed to transform our way of life, fostering a profound behavioural change among all citizens. He spoke of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas Sabka Vishwas Sabka Prayas,’ illustrating how Indians rallied behind his vision for a Swachh Bharat,” the minister further added.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Atul Kumar Tiwari expressed that from a skill development perspective, ‘Swachhata’ also requires a specialized skill set. For instance, in the realm of solid waste management, it is imperative to possess skills for waste segregation and disposal. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has been providing training in collaboration with local bodies and state governments in cleanliness-related areas. The focus has also been on empowering workers with modern machinery knowledge to instil a sense of dignity in their work, resulting in improved societal outcomes.
