Entrepreneur Development Program
Population explosion coupled with the unemployment situation is causing disharmony in our society. A large number of youth are competing for a limited number of positions in every part of the country. The mindset of the present day youth is that they are prepared go to the extent of borrowing money or selling their property to get a secured wage employment. Our country has enough potentiality for self-employment opportunities and an individual can make a very good living out of the income generated from a self employment venture. However there is a need to plan and select a lucrative venture suitable to the local needs. Unfortunately, the focus of our education system is more inclined towards academic needs than towards self-employment needs. The present day situation offers lot of encouragement for self-employment in the form of Government subsidies, marketing facilities, training and various financial schemes sponsored by Government. It is observed that many youth coming forward to take loan under Government sponsored scheme either come out of compulsion to do something or for the attraction of loan and subsidy & they lack commitment to self-employment. By providing proper information and advantages of self-employment, a vision is built. Further, the prospective entrepreneur will go with a firm mind set and enthusiasm to start the venture.
The basic objectives of these programs are:
To impart specialized skills to get the employment.
