Indian president launches Solar Charkha Mission
Indian president Ram Nath Kovind recently launched the Solar Charkha Mission covering artisans in 50 identified clusters and the Sampark portal — a digital platform to connect five lakh job seekers with recruiters — at Udyam Sangam-2018, an event in New Delhi to mark the important role played by micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

Praising the MSME sector in leveraging the demographic dividend of the country and promoting inclusive growth in rural and backward areas, the president said the sector accounted for around 60 per cent employment in the country, according to an official release.

The Solar Charkha Mission will entail a subsidy of ₹550 crore in the initial two years for 50 clusters and every cluster will employ 400 to 2000 artisans. The mission will generate employment in rural areas and contribute to the green economy.

The Sampark portal will help create a skilled pool of workers and connect trained youth with job opportunities, Kovind added. (DS)
