Self-Employment in India – Walk on the untrodden path!

The number of unemployed Indians is approximately around 29,650,000 in 2012. This is a very pitiful situation. And we all must take steps, whatever is in our hands, to generate employment and reduce this scenario – if not eliminate it. And one of the best ways is via Self-Employment in India. This is an opportunity for the job seekers to become job givers, as said by President Ram Nath Kovind.

“People should take up self-employment, not due to compulsion but because they choose to. Many programmes, such as the ‘Mudra Yojana’, ‘Startup India’ and ‘Stand Up India’ are helping the youth in empowerment to make them job givers instead of job seekers,” said Kovind recently. He opines that without economic and social democracy, political democracy cannot be strong.

We all have a collective responsibility for encouraging and generating jobs.
