Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh launched the new job-oriented scheme ‘Mera Kam, Mera Maan’ during online inauguration of the mega job fair for the benefit of wards of construction workers registered with the Construction Workers’ Welfare Board, Punjab, today. Under the scheme 80 candidates in Patiala district will be imparted skill training in the first phase.

These trainees will get financial assistance of Rs2,500 per month along with free books, uniforms, accommodation and hostel facility.

Among the beneficiaries of skill training, Mehakdeep Singh of Saholi village and Suman of Khera of Gajju village, expressed happiness over getting admission in vocational courses under the Skill Development Mission. Both thanked the state government for providing the training opportunity that would help them get employment.

Mehakdeep and Suman, who were pursuing warehouse packer course at SETPA Infotech Pvt Ltd. Skill Development Institute, Ramnagar, near Rajpura, said they belonged to construction workers’ family.

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s decision of providing skill training with financial assistance would prove a boon for them and others, they added.

After completion of courses they would also get placement opportunity, besides financial assistance of Rs2,500 per month for one year, they said. It would help in shaping their secure future, they added.

Both the candidates were part of the online foundation stone ceremony of C-Pyte Centre Asal-Utaar in Tarn Taran, inauguration of the seventh job fair, free online coaching for the government recruitment exams and launch of ‘Mera Kaam Mera Mann’ scheme at the local Mini Secretariat.

The PRTC Chairman, KK Sharma, who was also present on the occasion, said the ‘Ghar Ghar Rozgar Mission’ started by the Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh had provided a reliable platform for the youth of the state for government and private jobs and for the recruitment of manpower in industries of Punjab and other states.
