Aizawl: The Mizoram Youth Commission (MYC), a government of Mizoram agency for youth development, met with media persons on November 27, 2019 to discuss on measures to improve the employment of Mizo youths.
The MYC has come up with a new policy framework and road-map. With their primary concern being providing employment to the youths of Mizoram, they will be launching a job portal by the end of this year.
The job portal will provide a platform for job seekers and employers to register so that youths can reach out to a job of their choice and negotiate with employers.
Under the Mizoram Youth Commission budget, a sum of Rs. 5 crore has been sanctioned in grant-in-aid (GIA) and an additional Rs 9 crore for infrastructure.
Under the current government’s flagship programme of Socio Economic Development Policy (SEDP), the uplift and benefits of the youths is at its topmost priority.
An amount of Rs. 45 lakh has been sanctioned to provide support to those aspiring candidates of the All India Services and Central Services.
MYC chairman, Dr Vanlaltanpuia said, ” I am saddened by the fact that educated Mizo youths are unable to find employment. The youths of Mizoram must take utmost advantage of the support given by MYC. We are also willing to provide maximum support to youths to take up entrepreneurship.”
The Mizoram Youth Commission is actively involved in training Mizo youths for the Indian Army Rally 2019 in collaboration with the Brigadier of Assam Rifles and the Major General at Counter Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School(CIJWS). At this year’s Army recruitment, 97 people have passed the physical test and over 50 youths referred for written exam.
The MYC will be giving a special coaching class for the Army recruitment written exam to be held on January 2020.
The Mizoram Youth Commission has also organised a pre-recruitment training for the “Indian Air Force Garud Commondo”. Through the support of MYC and guidance, two candidates- Aldrin Lalbiakfela of Keifang village and R Lalrinnunga of Dinthar locality, Aizawl- have passed the gruesome test and waiting for their ‘Calling Letter’.
