The government deputy contemplates a policy to give more jobs to women in industries
With the aim of providing employment for more women in Madhya Pradesh’s industries, the state government will prepare a policy, Prime Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced on Sunday.
The government will seriously consider increasing the percentage of participation by women in industries and will consult with industrialists on this, he said.
“The employment of women in industries will increase. A policy in this direction will be prepared after discussion with industrialists. Our daughters are fully qualified to work in industrial units, ”Chouhan said.
He made the statement while inaugurating a Welspun Group large-diameter welded pipe manufacturing unit in Jamunia Khejda in Raisen district, the state’s Public Relations Department said in a statement.
Chouhan appreciated the company’s decision to provide about 50% of jobs to women at the newly opened plant.
He said that the Aatmanirbhar (self-sufficient) Madhya Pradesh roadmap was prepared during the period of the coronavirus outbreak.
“The Madhya Pradesh government is also focusing on skills development. To this end, the initiative has been taken to launch Global Skill Park in Bhopal, ”said the Prime Minister.
Chouhan said that the employment potential cannot be realized through agriculture alone, as there is a limit in the agricultural sector.
“Therefore, it is necessary to focus on other areas of employment. This requires skill, for people to get jobs. And for this, Global Skill Park will be established at a cost of Rs 600 crore, ”he said.
He said that despite the difficulties posed by this year’s coronavirus outbreak, farmers in MP have outperformed those in Punjab by producing 1.29 million metric tons of wheat.
