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.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
