Jobless? Work 4 hours a day to claim Rajasthan allowance | India News


JAIPUR: Rajasthan’s repackaged unemployment allowance scheme — Mukhyamantri Yuva Sambal Yojana, which is pending approval at the chief minister’s office (CMO) — mandates four-hour duty per day for five days a week at state government offices, agencies or anganwadi centres for jobless youths to avail of the scheme.
Under the new scheme, the unemployment allowance will be increased from Rs 3,500 to Rs 4,500 for girls, specially-abled persons and transgenders, and from Rs 3,000 to Rs 4,000 for boys. Now two lakh beneficiaries will be eligible for the scheme every year, which is an increase from 1.6 lakh until now.
Unemployment allowance to youths was part of Congress manifesto for 2018 assembly polls. The Mukhyamantri Yuva Sambal Yojana was launched in the state on February 1, 2019.
“Youths will have to work four hours a day to be eligible for unemployment allowance. If they don’t have any professional degree or diploma, they will undertake skill training for three months at Rajasthan Skill and Livelihoods Development Corporation,” said employment secretary Neeraj Pawan.
