Apart from providing sports platforms and educational opportunities to the students of Jammu and Kashmir, the government is now trying its level best to provide skill training for the students so that they can earn their livelihood in future.
Recently while interacting with the students who were provided with scholarships to complete their courses, Lt Governor stressed on proper implementation of policies and focusing on the need to focus on skill training, re-skilling girls so that they have an equal share in future economic opportunities.
Collective efforts are yielding favorable results. During Kashmir University’s convocation, there were 94 gold medalists in 2021, out of which 77% i.e. 66 were girls. Similarly, during the convocation of the Islamic University of Science & Technology, the majority of gold medalists were girls, which is a clear sign of women empowerment.
In the last one year, in terms of promoting technical education in J&K, the Lt Governor observed that the government has made headways in strengthening industry-academia partnerships and skill development of students at higher secondary level.
In collaboration with Tata Technologies, we are setting up 14 Centers for Invention, Innovation, Incubation & Training, out of which 2 centers have started in Baramulla and Jammu.
