Making Rural India Employable
Government of India attaches highest priority to poverty alleviation and has been
working purposefully to improve the quality of public system and delivery of public
service for employment generation and rural prosperity. Implementing the same, Ministry
of Rural Development (MoRD) has envisioned the scheme SGSY (Swarnajayanti Gram Swarojgar
Yojana) to provide support for self employment and wage employment to the rural
BPL youth. Under the SGSY scheme, MoRD has structured provision for creating special
projects for skill development to enable the rural BPL youth to get wage employment.
