As many as 76,470 unemployed educated youth registered with the authorities for employment in the private sector under the Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu (RYK) scheme in both East and West Godavari districts. This is after awareness drive by authorities, asking youth to register their names with them to find suitable employment, based on their skills and aptitude.

In East Godavari, nearly 28,800 youth have registered with the authorities seeking employment while 125 firms have also registered so far in the district. The nodal agency for implementation of the job scheme, the district rural development agency, in association with other departments and firms has set up 14 training centres at several places including Rajahmundry, Kakinada, Amalapuram, Tuni, Rama-chandrapuram, Seetha-palli, Rampachodavaram and others in the district.

The DRDA provides training only in communication skills and basics of computers.

The authorities are organising a job mela involving private firms once a week on Saturday at Samalkota. The schedule was affected in the last few days due to the festive season, and they are planning to resume it after the Pongal vacation.

The district authorities have provided employment to 5,776 persons, fulfilling the target given by state government by December 31 by 108 per cent out of the total generation of jobs to the tune of one lakh in the next few years in the district.

In West Godavari, 47,670 unemployed youth registered with the authorities so far.

The collector, Dr G. Vani Mohan, taking part in the job mela organised as part of the RYK at Eluru, called upon youth to avail the scheme to find jobs. She was critical of some youth who failed to report for duty even after getting call letters to join in private firms and felt the need to counsel them as well as their parents on the need to find a job.

The local MLA, Mr Alla Nani, appreciated the administration for implementing the scheme with commitment and said that nearly 7,800 persons were provided with jobs in the district in the last five months.
