January 24 was Uttar Pradesh Diwas, on the occasion of which, a new mobile app was launched to give a push to self-employment. Developed under the One-District One-Product scheme and targeted at the youth, it will help users explore various means of self-employment.
Aptly called ‘Udyam Sarathi’, the app will provide youth with business opportunities in various departments and sectors, including the state and Central governments, at the click of a button. It will offer news and updated information about the market, business approaches and development strategies. It is hoped that the app will give youth the much-needed guidance and encouragement to give wings to their dreams and ambitions.
In addition to financial assistance in the form of loans and support from the state government, the app will also offer advice from and opinions of experts to encourage youth to start off on their own, and in the process, give jobs to others.
Particularly beneficial for women, this app will be a step in the right direction, under the ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas’ vision.
The app will go a long way in helping to revive the economy, by bringing together technology and aspirations, which will lead to the growth of the youth of the state and also the state in general.
The chief minister of Uttar Pradesh also rolled out a state-wide, free coaching facility, to help students prepare for various competitive examinations.
