Project self-employment as respectable: President Kovind
People should take up self-employment not due to compulsion but because they choose to.
Young Indians to generate employment instead of seeking jobs.
Government’s initiative to help self employment
- ‘Mudra Yojana’
- ‘Startup India’ and
- ‘Stand Up India’
‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ and ‘Sabka Samman, Sabka Utthan’.
These have a singular goal of strengthening economic and social democracy. The idea behind these programmes is that if anyone has to really help someone, then he/she should be made financially self-reliant
Family, educational institutions, private sector banks, entrepreneurs, NGOs, etc. all have the responsibility to create an environment where private enterprise is encouraged.
“Together, we should create a culture in which self- employment is not chosen just due to the compulsion of not getting a job. The idea of becoming a job-giver instead of job-seeker should be embraced.
