Employment in Rural Areas

The Rural Development Ministry is examining proposals that promises to leapfrog job creation for the rural youth.
Out of the box suggestions:
  • Migrant tracking system, low-cost accommodation for urban workers, and changing the word “labour” to “professional workers,”
  • The Ministry’s flagship skill development programme — Deen Dayal Updadhaya Gramin Kaushal Yojana — needs to “reinvent itself to reach the next level.”
  • Link skill to entrepreneurship development and do not over-emphasize wage employment.
  • Rural digital index on the same lines of smart city index.
  • Cluster approach: Experts have suggested a cluster approach, where villages with similar socio-economic conditions should be clubbed and every village should have a gram vikas prerak (village development motivator), and call the “bottom of the pyramid as the foundation of the pyramid.”
