Prime Minister Rozgar Yojana (PMRY) Scheme
The Prime Minister's Rozgar Yojana (PMRY) was introduced to help educated jobless impoverished people establish microbusinesses in order to give employment to educated unemployed young. Women, ITI graduates, and people who have completed government-sponsored technical training for at least six months are given preference.
Objectives of PMRY
Through the establishment of 7 lakh microbusinesses by educated unemployed young during the final four years of the VIII Five Year Plan, from 1993–1994 to 1996–1997, the PMRY sought to create jobs for more than a million people. The X Five Year Plan has seen the Scheme continue.
It has to do with creating self-employment businesses in all economically sound projects (except direct agricultural operations). The programme aims to collaborate with reputable non-governmental organizations in the implementation of the PMRY programme, particularly in the selection, training, and creation of project profiles.
