SRINAGAR, June 16: Advisor to the Governor, Khurshid Ahmed Ganai, today urged the Employment Department to provide all assistance to unemployed educated youth in the State in their hunt for jobs in the ever-expanding domestic and global markets.
He said the focus of employment exchanges should be on vocational guidance and career counseling and these exchanges should link the employer with the registered candidates.
The Advisor made these observations while reviewing the functioning of the Labour & Employment Department and especially the newly-launched Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Mandhan Yojana (PM-SYM).

Laying stress upon providing better working conditions to the working class, Ganai stressed upon strict implementation of labour laws to protect the interest of the labour community. He said the officers of the Department should be well-versed with labour laws and new legislations so that they are better enforced in the larger interest of the working and construction class.
While reviewing the newly-launched Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Mandhan Yojana, the Advisor asked the Department to closely monitor registration of workers in CICs. He suggested use of random checking to revalidate data which shall plug holes in computing errors while registering eligible persons.
Under PMSYM which offers regular pension to the labour class people after they attain the age of 60, as many as 56,313 registrations had been done and 46,927 cards printed so far in the State.
Presenting a detailed review of the three wings of the Labour & Employment Department, the Administrative Secretary briefed the Advisor about various schemes and welfare programmes launched for educated unemployed youth and the labour community. He informed the meeting about various schemes being implemented through J&K Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI).
The meeting was informed that during 2018-19, as many as 966 Self-Help Groups (SHGs) were registered which comprised 4188 engineers. As many as 2237 works worth Rs.191.54 crore were allotted to these SHGs.
Director EDI informed the meeting about Seed Capital Fund Scheme (SCFS), Youth Start-up Loan Scheme and giving term and education loans to youth through National Minorities Development and Finance Corporation.
He said that projects worth Rs. 536.77 crore had been sanctioned under these schemes and as many as 13,464 enterprises were established generating employment for 43192 persons.
While briefing the Advisor about the initiatives on labour welfare, the Labour Commissioner said a payment gateway would soon be launched to make online contributions for the benefit of subscribers.
He said concerted efforts are on to register new subscribers and complete the disbursement of backlog claims and make recoveries from the defaulters.
The meeting was informed that all 5.10 lakh Provident Fund accounts had been digitized and the scanning of important subscribers' documents would be taken up in the next phase.
The Advisor appreciated the role of Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board (BOCWWB) in providing financial assistance to workers in the form of education and marriage assistance as well as in case of injury, death and permanent disability of workers.
The meeting was informed that against a corpus of Rs 899.66 crore, Rs. 371.79 crore were disbursed amongst construction workers since 2011. This includes education assistance amounting to Rs 266.82 crore, marriage assistance of Rs. 73.98 crore and death assistance amounting to Rs. 24.82 crore.
Poonch residents resent suspension of Srinagar-Poonch SRTC bus service
Poonch, June 16:
The people of Poonch has taken a strong note over the stopping of SRTC bus service from Poonch to Srinagar via Mughal Road this year which was started last year to facilitate the general public of Poonch District.
A deputation of the general public met former MLC Dr. Shehnaz Ganai and apprised her of the difficulties faced by the public to travel up to Srinagar in absence of this service as it was economical for less privileged people.
The deputation briefed her that mostly general public used this mode of transport while going for their medical and health check up at SKIMS or for pilgrimage tour to Sufi saints of valley as it is cheaper than the other private transport services. People showed their grave concern over the illogic stoppage of SRTC service from Poonch while the service from District Rajouri is regularly plying.

After listening to the issues of the deputation, Dr. Ganai straightway talked telephonically to the Commissioner Secretary Transport and complained about this unjustified stoppage of SRTC service to Poonch. The said commissioner while showing his positivity over the issue assured Dr. Shehnaz Ganai for the early continuation of this service. Former MLC also put forward a suggestion of starting of new SRTC bus services at local levels in Pir Panjaal region to facilitate the general public. The commissioner secretary while appreciating this suggestion of Dr. Ganai also assured her to take necessary steps over this suggestion.
