He directed the staff to adopt latest training techniques of capacity building to facilitate and train the candidates of Tejawani Scheme – a flagship scheme under Mission Youth for aspiring young female entrepreneurs.
He urged the concerned officers to reach out to the tribal population of the Union Territory so that an all inclusive ecosystem of entrepreneurship is developed and all the sections of the society will benefit from the government schemes. He also impressed upon the officers to stay connected with them to ensure proper hand holding and follow-up.
He also mentioned the importance of women participation in the field of entrepreneurship and self employment as is envisioned by the Hon’ble Lt. Governor of J&K, Shri Manoj Sinha. Self reliant women can shape a positive future of the Union Territory and will add to the already impressive development story of the UT.
