The scheme has already helped provide jobs to around 5,000 youths from Jammu and Kashmir with companies including Accenture, Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro.
More than 54 companies have already committed to train nearly 68,738 graduates and post-graduates in Jammu and Kashmir over the next four-five years and later offer them jobs as well if they fit the bill.
According to PTI, the cost of the training, boarding and lodging, is borne by the Central government. If a candidate is selected for a job after completing training, the government reimburses the training cost to the company.
Companies which have tied up with the Centre to train youths in Jammu and Kashmir over the next few years also include Bharti Infratel Limited, TENVIC, a division of Anil Kumble Sports Promotion; Fidelis Corporate Solutions; MTC Mount Talent Consulting; and Manpower Group, the world leader in innovative work solutions.
Yes Bank, Religare and public sector units including NTPC, BSNL, ONGC, HAL and BHEL are among other companies that have committed to train the youths for corporate jobs in metros.
