Swami Vivekananda Youth Employment Week 

CM hands out appointment letters to 13380 youths of six districts of Ahmedabad zone

65000 youths will be given appointment letters in the span of a week

The State government has changed the very fabric of ITIs and employment exchanges: CM

In a programme held as a part of Swami Vivekananda Youth Employment Week the Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday handed out appointment letters on behalf of private employers to 13380 youths of the six districts of Ahmedabad zone.

As a part of this historic employment campaign, the Chief Minister had earlier handed out appointment letters to 13079 youths of eight districts of Saurashtra-Kutch zone and 13229 youths of six districts of central Gujarat zone. The Chief Minister, on Friday, will hand out appointment letters to 25312 youths from six districts of south Gujarat at Surat.

Speaking on the occasion the Chief Minister said the State government desires to change the very fabric of the ITIs and employment exchanges. The government has brought about a drastic change in the kind of industrial training being provided at ITIs.

Earlier, Mr. Modi said, the youth were reluctant to take courses at ITIs and the people used to neglect this field. But the government has changed the face of ITIs and helped them gaining a new dignity.

The state government has equipped the ITI buildings with modern infrastructural facilities and latest technology. Even the Central government has recommended adopting the Gujarat ITIs as a model. Now, the training for vehicle driving is given through automatic stimulators. This will produce skilled drivers who will have knowledge of road safety. The ITIs are also enabled to impart training of high-tech construction technology, he said.

A decade back, Gujarat had only 274 ITIs, with the enrollment of about 77000 youths. But now, as many as 4.75 lakh youths are getting skill development training in around 1100 ITIs, he said.

The state government has opened up the door for higher education for those who successfully pass the ITI education. Now, an ITI passed-out can pursue diploma and then degree courses without giving exams of class 10 and 12. The contribution of an ITI passed-out in nation building is not a bit less than the one doing a white-collar job, the Chief Minister said.

“I am sure the youths will become instrumental in making India a world-leader as envisioned by Swami Vivekananda”, said Mr. Modi.

Speaking on the occasion Labour and Employment Minister Vajubhai Vala said the ITIs and skill development centres of the state are imparting training for as many as 180 different types of courses. The Chief Minister Narendra Modi desires each and every youth of Gujarat to become like Narendra Datt (Swami Vivekananda). The state government has undertaken this campaign to bring out the inner strength of the younger generation.

Minister of State for Labour and Employment Liladhar Vaghela said that Gujarat is the only state which has organized such job-fairs. This campaign is a huge effort of the government to curb poverty by creating jobs.

Principal Secretary to Labour and Employment department P.Panirvel said that Gujarat is marching with a rapid growth. With a view to meet the industries’ demand of skilled manpower the state government has raised the number of seats in ITIs. He also gave details of various courses offered by ITIs.

The members of state cabinet, MLAs and youths in large number were present on the occasion.

PM-CARES Fund to procurement 1,50,000 units of Oxycare System at a cost of Rs 322.5 Crore.
Comprehensive system developed by DRDO to regulate oxygen being administrated to patients based on the sensed values of their SpO2 levels.
DRDO has transferred the technology to multiple industries in India who will be producing the Oxycare Systems for use all across India.
Oxycare system reduces the work load and exposure of healthcare providers by eliminating the need of routine measurement and manual adjustments of Oxygen flow

PM-CARES Fund has accorded sanction for procurement of 1,50,000 units of Oxycare System at a cost of Rs 322.5 Crore. It is a comprehensive system developed by DRDO to regulate oxygen being administrated to patients based on the sensed values of their SpO2 levels.

The system has been developed in two Configurations. The basic version consists of a 10 litre Oxygen cylinder, a Pressure Regulator cum Flow Controller, a Humidifier and a Nasal Cannula. The Oxygen flow is regulated manually based on the SpO2 readings. The intelligent configuration includes a system for automatic regulation of Oxygen through a Low Pressure Regulator, Electronic Control System and an SpO2 Probe in addition to the basic version.

SpO2 Based Oxygen Control System optimises consumption of oxygen based on the SpO2 level of the patient and effectively increases the endurance of portable Oxygen cylinder. The threshold SpO2 value for initiating flow from the system can be adjusted by the health staff and the SpO2 levels are continuously monitored and displayed by the system. It reduces the work load and exposure of healthcare providers by eliminating the need of routine measurement and manual adjustments of Oxygen flow, thereby facilitating tele-consultation also. The automatic system also provides suitable audio warning for various failure scenarios including low SpO2 values and probe disconnections. These Oxycare systems can be used at Homes, Quarantine Centres, COVID Care Centres and Hospitals.

In addition, Non-Rebreather Masks (NRM) are integrated with the Oxycare Systems for efficient use of oxygen which results in saving of Oxygen by 30-40%.

DRDO has transferred the technology to multiple industries in India who will be producing the Oxycare Systems for use all across India.

The current medical protocol recommends oxygen therapy for all severe and critical Covid-19 patients. Given the current status of oxygen generation, transport and storage, oxygen cylinders have proved to be effective. Considering the present COVID pandemic situation with large number of individuals requiring oxygen therapy, sourcing only one type of system may not be practical, as all the manufacturing plants making the basic building blocks of the system are already running at their maximum capacity.  A mix and match of the system would prove to be a useful arrangement in the given situation. While the capacity of existing domestic manufacturers of carbon-manganese steel cylinders is very limited, as an alternative, DRDO has suggested light material portable cylinders which can easily act as substitutes for normal oxygen cylinders.
