Unemployment is a real concern. A nation that has its majority of its youth not contributing to its economy will sink to great depths.
It is a common truth that a nation’s youth drive it to great heights. It does not happen when the nation’s youth is trapped in the despairing grips of unemployment, barely scraping by days.
This is especially true in rural India, where there is little education and a lack of vocational skills. Rural youth lack the skills necessary to add value to organizations, and are therefore left behind. It is a fact, that while rural India has a lot of labor force, most of it is not skilled and therefore is of little use to the larger industrial sector.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for rural youth to find work because they lack the skills necessary to succeed in the jobs that they do get. It is crucial to equip these youngsters with vocational skills in order to create a solid pool of human resources.
The Training of Rural Youth for Self Employment, also known as TRYSEM, was a program launched by the Indian government through the Department of Rural Development. It was initiated on 15 August 1979. The scheme aims to offer opportunities and facilities to the country’s youth, particularly those who are from rural areas.
The Training of Rural Youth for Self-Employment has some broad objectives:
It is essential to implement these goals efficiently in order for the scheme to be effective.
It is important to choose the right mix of vocations to help rural youth find the job that they desire. They can excel at their job because of their vocations. The District Rural Development Agency (DRDA), which is responsible for identifying the vocations that might be useful to rural youth, sifts through a variety of vocations and deems them extremely important.
For rural youth, there were 38 trade opportunities. These trades include cultivations, honey production, and cultivation of medicinal plants.
There are many other options for rural youth, including nursery, poultry and veterinary services.
TRYSEM participants will need to complete formal training as well as non-institutional options such an apprenticeship under master craftsmen.
Training can last anywhere from a few days up to several months. A course should not last more than six months.
Stipends are awarded to trainees during training. The stipends are intended to encourage trainees to attend training sessions on a regular basis. Each trainee receives a Rs250/- stipend per month. This is only if the trainee is trained in their village.
If the training takes place in another village than the residence of the trainee, the trainee is entitled Rs500/- per trainee per lunar month. Depending on where they are from, trainees can earn anywhere between Rs250 and Rs500.
A combination of institutional credit and subsidies is available to trainees who successfully complete a training program or module.
You can contact your Panchayat Samiti if you are interested in the benefits of the scheme. They are the execution bodies at grass-roots level. It is not possible to register online with TRYSEM due to the age of this scheme.
Here is a printable form you can fill out to make the process easier for you.
The form requires basic information such as address, age, and basic qualification. To ensure smooth registration, it is a good idea to bring originals of any documents you have for verification at Panchayat.
For those who have been living on the economic margins for too long, this scheme offers huge benefits. These are just a few of the many benefits of the Training of Rural Youth For Self-Employment program.
These benefits make it easier for youth to contact the government with the support of Panchayat officials and district officials.
TRYSEM‘s provisions are crucial in eliminating the effects of unemployment in the country and also to improve the quality of the workers in the country.
It can be difficult to overcome the unemployment problem. With TRYSEM, however, things can get better one day at time. It is easier to offer opportunities for young people who are interested in making a career out of their lives with the right incentives.
It has been observed that many rural youth are not able to learn vocational skills and lack confidence, which eventually leads to more unemployment.
However, those who have these vocational skills can excel in whatever they choose to do. Rural youth will perform better when they have the proper guidance and supervision.
They not only improve their financial situation but also contribute to the nation’s economy. Happier people equal a happier nation, and this happiness ripples down to all walks of life.
True progress is when no one is left behind
