Nitit Aayog has suggested various measures, including the previously mentioned one, under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) Urban and the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana- National Urban Livelihood Mission (DAY-NULM).
JWG was set up with six members three members each from Niti Aayog and the State Government and was asked to prepare a road map and identify action points for the development of UP.
The JWG action plan also suggested that 1.75 Lakh candidates should undergo “skill training” under the Employment through Skill Training and Placement (EST&P) by March 2020. The program which comes under the DAY-NULM, provides kill training to the urban poor for enabling them to set up self-employment ventures or join salaried jobs in the private sector.
JWG has recommended the UP Government to submit its own action plan for the PMAY (U) of all approved cities of the state by August this year. Under the DAY-NULM’s self-employment program, a total of 25,410 persons should be provided loans by March 2020.
State Government also suggested to complete street vendor survey and street vending plan in 67 cities by March 2020, under Support to Urban Street Vendors (SUSV) component of DAY-NULM.
JWG also asked State Government to ensure 110 shelters under the ‘shelter for urban homeless’ program of NULM.
These are the top targets of Uttar Pradesh government itself.
