You can do wonders without running after government jobs: Khurshid Ganai
Guv's Advisor exhorts skilled youth to channelize energy in private and not government sector

Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Sept 6: Khurshid Ahmad Ganai, Advisor to Governor Satya Pal Malik today said that skilled youth instead of running after jobs in government sector should utilize their potential and channelize their energy in private sector where they can do wonders.
Addressing the pre-placement awareness cum counseling programme organized by Department of Technical Education at SKICC here, Ganai said that private sector provides huge opportunities to the skilled and trained manpower. He said the technically skilled persons can earn huge money provided they realize that private and not government sector is their ultimate destination.
"A technical field like mobile repairing industry provides huge opportunity to the people skilled in this particular industry. If we presume that each person has two mobiles in the state then are two and half crore mobiles.
There is a dearth of mobile mechanics and skilled manpower should think on these lines," said Ganai. Ganai said that many youth who meet him urge that the government should appoint them on meager wages on the pattern of Rehbar-e-Taleem and Rehbar-e-Ziraat. He said that it is not possible to appoint youth on these jobs adding that youth should look for brighter options of career building in the private sector.
"It is encouraging that more and youth are willing to join the private sector in order to showcase their talent. However, I wish that all the skilled as well as trained youth don't run after jobs in government sector. You can set up your own units and give jobs to others while earning handsomely for your own self and for your family," said Ganai.
Ganai lamented that people of state especially the residents of Kashmir are not ready to carry out jobs at their own homes adding that labour is imported for carrying out jobs in the fields. He said that people have become spectators in their own land with the tasks supposed to be carried out by them being carried out by outside residents.
Ganai said that like India, Jammu & Kashmir is a place of youth with 65 percent of population living in the age group of 0-35 years. He said that young minds should think differently on positive lines so that they play their part in the economic development.
Ganai emphasized the need to impart soft skills to the youth so that they learn etiquettes along with the academic and professional skills.
He asked the leading businessmen to come forward and set up institutes of technological excellence in the state. He lauded Kashmiri youth saying that they have tremendous computer skills.
Ganai emphasized on the need for upgradation of polytechnics and Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) to increase the job prospects of youth. He said it would be unfair on part of youth to expect them to start their own entrepreneurial venture when they are not getting trained in the latest technological sciences.
Ganai said that society should be ready for the next industrial revolution and for that new training module including Artificial Intelligence, automation services etc should be looked into. He said besides, introducing new courses, the focus should also be laid on investing to improve the infrastructure in the existing institutes. Secretary Technical Education, Mohammad Javed Khan said that in last two years 1500 youth of the state who had received training in various disciplines at various ITIs and polytechnics, were adjusted in the local industrial sector. He said the department would redouble its efforts to make the trained manpower in tune with the demands of the market.
Director Technical Education Anoo Malhotra talked about various initiatives taken by the department for ensuring the better job prospects for the students. She said the pass-outs are encouraged to create self help groups and also take benefits from various finance schemes of the various government departments. During the programme two ITI students Shahbaz and Tawheeda Akhtar were felicitated with mementoes since they preferred to set up their own units instead of looking for jobs in the government sector. Dignitaries, students and staff members of the department took part in the programme.
