Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday (September 10) said that it is going to provide one lakh tablets to the skilled workers of the state for free as part of its Skill Development Mission. The move will help skilled workers hone their skills further and do better in their jobs, said the government.
The Yogi government said it is providing a wide range of services to the people at large on the one hand and to the skilled people on the other through web portal sewamitra.up.gov.in, app and call centre 155330. Skilled workers can apply for a job through the portal, which also facilitates their training in order to hone their skills as part of the State Government’s Skill Development Mission.
CM Yogi had earlier given instructions to the authorities to provide employment to the people standing in the last rung of the society by linking them with the Skill Development Mission. On the instructions of the CM, the Labour Department had done the skill mapping of the migrants returning to UP from other states during the first wave of coronavirus pandemic to give them employment during those trying times.
As part of this continuous mission to uplift workers, the government has launched Seva Mitra service in 25 districts with the aim of providing employment to more and more skilled workers through the Labour Department. The service is currently under trial and will be soon launched in the remaining districts. A 50-seater call centre has also been set up in this regard.
Kunal Silku, Director, Skill Development Mission, described it as excellent service to have been started by the government for the common people and the skilled workers.
