Chennai, July 1 (KNN) The union government has trained about 2.83 crore youth under its skill development programmes across the country, said Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday.

She said that these training have been imparted according to the requirement of the present industries.


The Union Minister said that the Centre has also created several employment opportunities by conducting six major job fairs across the country to give appointments to about 4.2 lakh candidates, who have participated.

Claiming that in 2024 over 10 lakh government jobs opportunities will be made available, Nirmala said that India has worked intensively with many countries, including France, UAE and Australia to recognise the degrees of the students here.
