Demand for plumbers, electricians in rural areas to go up in near future: Gehlot

Jaipur, July 5 (PTI) Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Monday that demand for plumbers, electricians and installers will increase at the village level in the coming years.

In such a situation, many rural youth would need to be trained in courses such as plumbing, electrical work and mechanic jobs through the Rajasthan Skill and Livelihood Development Corporation (RSLDC), he said during a review meeting of the state-run body.

He said coordination with different departments should be achieved by setting goals to provide employment to more young people through skills development. Gehlot also ensured timely implementation of budget announcements and effective monitoring.

The CM said it is necessary to ensure that the training partner companies selected by the company provide placement to the prescribed number of trained young people under the terms of the MoU.

RSLDC chairman Neeraj K Pawan said 100 beggars have been trained in the program to match beggars with work, 40 of whom have been given work in Akshaya Patra, a non-profit organization.

Pawan said 39,193 youth received 4-month training in plumbing, assembly and electrician under Jal Jeevan Mission. PTI AG HDA
