The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is all set to start a 10 days basic course in MSME (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises) to create more entrepreneurs in the state. The move is seen as an essential step by the government to promote the MSME sector, which is considered one of the critical drivers of economic growth. It will be taught at the college level. It will be awarded a certificate to the participants upon successful completion.
The objective of the course is to provide employment-oriented training to the youth and make them aware of the different aspects of MSMEs so that they can start their own enterprises. “The course will cover all aspects of MSMEs, including how to start, operate and manage them,” an official said. This introductory course will be offered with general certificates and advanced classes in specific areas like processing food and agricultural production, organic farming, and mechanical work at the next stage.
The government has also conceived the idea of teaching entrepreneurial skills to students at the secondary level to ensure that the foundation for their independence is laid during the early years of their development.
In addition to the college students who have earned their certificate, they will also be offered exposure tours and bank links to borrow money to help translate concepts into action- said Sehgal. Also, Pawan Agarwal, Joint Commissioner MSME, announced that the certification opportunity would be added to the departmental application called MSME Sarthi.
