Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has set the target of two lakh cases for the UT administration for sanctioning and financing under self employment schemes today, while reviewing the status of self employment schemes with Secretaries and senior bank officials, here at Civil Secretariat.

While chairing the meeting, the Lt Governor issued directions for the skill development department to utilize cutting edge technology to fulfill the real time needs of the Industry.

The Lt Governor said that SC, ST, OBC and women entrepreneurs should be given special focus in the self-employment schemes. He further asked the DCs to ensure the saturation of social security schemes and basic amenities, especially in far-flung and border areas.

The Lt Governor has asked the Banks to lay out uniform criteria for ensuring that no deserving candidate is denied the financial inclusion benefits due to trivial reasons.  He directed them to designate nodal officers who will ensure the timely disposal of loans to the beneficiaries of employment generation schemes.

Impressing upon the Secretaries of concerned departments and Deputy Commissioners to saturate the coverage of various schemes including KCC, Mudra, Fasal Bima Yojana and others, the Lt Governor said that departmental coordination and involvement of all stakeholders including Banks, Cooperatives, Departments of Skill Development, and Labour and Employment is imperative for achieving the desired results of benefitting the common man of the UT.
