Haryana’s Visionary Leap: ‘Mission 60,000’ Unleashes Employment Opportunities for Underprivileged Youth

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has launched ‘Mission 60,000,’ aiming to provide employment opportunities for 60,000 youngsters from families earning less than Rs 1.80 lakh annually. The announcement was made during the state-level ‘Vivekananda Youth Mahasammelan’ on Swami Vivekananda’s birth anniversary.

Under the comprehensive initiative, Khattar outlined key components of ‘Mission 60,000.’ The government plans to engage 7,500 ‘Van Mitra’ individuals, recruit 15,000 contractual employees through the Haryana Kaushal Rozgar Nigam, and involve 7,500 ‘e-Sewa Mitra’ for Common Services Centre, among other roles. Notably, 15,000 youths with diplomas or degrees in civil engineering will undergo specialized training to become contractors.

Chief Minister Khattar highlighted a crucial financial support aspect, stating, “The government will extend a loan of Rs 3 lakhs to these individuals for one year without requiring any collateral. Trained youths under this program will be exempt from providing a guarantee for work up to Rs 25 lakh.” The overarching goal is to elevate their annual income, enabling them to surpass the Below Poverty Line (BPL) threshold.

Paying homage to Swami Vivekananda, Khattar considered his life an inspiration and emphasized his significant role in representing India’s perspective at the World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893.

Khattar laid the foundation stone for the Saraswati Vatika development project of the irrigation and water resources department, allocating Rs 3.68 crore for the three-phase initiative. Karnal MP Sanjay Bhatia and Printing and Stationery Minister Sandeep Singh graced the occasion with their presence.
