The Government of India aims to construct toilets in all the schools within one year. The toilet construction is being undertaken by States, PSUs, as well as some private sector entities. As per recent Government review, several states are already close to achieving the hundred percent target.
The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi recently reviewed the progress of this programme and has directed the Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth, and OSD in the Cabinet Secretariat P.K. Sinha to personally review the figures being reported from various parts in the country so as to ensure that all the bottlenecks are removed and the programme implementation can be expedited.
Skill Development Center in Bihar
The Centre is keen on setting up ´Skill Development Center´ in all forty parliamentary constituencies of Bihar. The Government of India has set a target of making 50 crore people employable through skill development by 2017. In India only 3% of the youths are having proper skill sets. This is not adequate to gain employment. The technical training curriculum of these centres shall compulsory be linked with ´National Skill Qualification Framework´ for the purpose of getting government jobs. Around 12,000 ITIs are being updated and modernized for training of 6 lakhs youths.
