Mukhyamantri Swavalamban Yojana(MSY)
There is a great need to promote self-employment, whether there is a lack of adequate employment in both the government sector or the private sector. The state government of Himachal Pradesh has taken the step in this direction and announced a new scheme for the youth of the state. These projects will not only explore the possibilities of self-employment but will also encourage all those related to it. In this way, the scheme named Mukhyamantri Swavalamban (MSY) will explore the possibility of new job in the field of self-employment. Several schemes have been announced along with this scheme, especially the Housing Benefit Scheme which will work at the regional level just like the Ujjwala scheme of Central.
The first announcement related to the scheme was announced on May 25, 2018 by Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur. Himachal’s cabinet has also said that the implementation of the scheme will be started as soon as possible.
Main benefits of the plan
Young people wandering in search of employment do not get employment according to their merit or many times the possibility is not made, but if they put their focus on self-employment, the job loss can be reduced to a great extent. With the implementation of this project, the state youth will get a lot of help in setting up their business.
Key Features of the Scheme
Encourage the youth
This is the only way of implementing this scheme that the main purpose of the state government can be to motivate the youth to self-employment, and they are interested in starting their own business.
Decrease of Job Deficiency
With the implementation of this project, the problem of job losses in the state will end. Young people will be able to start their own business instead of wandering in search of a job, so that they will not have to do any job, but they can also start their own business and become an employer to provide them employment. In this way, if they establish their own business, they will not need to find more jobs, rather they will be able to employ themselves unemployed.
Government land for rent
If a self-employed person wants the land, then he can take help from the government for this. If he gets the approval of the HP government and if he wants to take government land as a rent, the state government will charge only 1% of the actual rate of that land.
