Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, on Wednesday, launched the Youth Policy at city's Motilal Nehru Stadium.
Notably, MP has 17% youth population. With this policy, the ruling BJP aims to woo the youths as the state goes to poll later this year.
Under the youth policy, the government aims to provide career counselling to students of classes 10th and 12th.
Also, an integrated system will be developed to connect students with government employment schemes and subsidies.This free-of-cost system will help students with academics, skill development and vocational training.
Chouhan said that job aspirants will now have to pay one-time registration fee for all competitive exams they appear for in a year.
"Our children pay fees for every government recruitment exam. They pay different amounts for different exams. Suppose if one student pays Rs 400 for a single recruitment test, and if he fills five forms in a year, he ends up paying Rs 2,000. But now the job aspirants will have to pay only one-time exam fee for all government recruitment exams for a period of one year," Chouhan said.
