Skill-based programme for Naxal-hit districts in Chhattisgarh
Raipur: A skill-based training programme will be launched in 10 worst-affected Naxal districts in Chhattisgarh to help the youth sharpen their skills in different professions, officials said.
The government would launch `Skill Gurukul` scheme in Rajnandgaon on December 25 which will be later extended to other districts.
Chief Minster Dr Raman Singh had recently announced the scheme at a Conference in Kolkata and invited suggestions from information technology experts and IITians for its effective execution, an official said.
The state government is already running centres in Naxal-hit districts to provide training to tribal youth in sewing machine, electrical work and data entry operations, he added.
