In a move extending job opportunities to unemployed locals, the Nepal Government has announced a special 30-day employment program.
The program is expected to cover around 106, 872 unemployed Nepalis waiting for job opportunities across the local units.
The government has allotted a total of NPR 2.36 billion budget for this program.
In this regard, each local government body has already received a minimum NPR 500,000-10 million for job creation to all the unemployed locals.
Now, the target for the local units is to ensure jobs for 106,872 unemployed for 30 days in the next two months period.
This decision comes in line with the government’s ‘minimum employment program’, which it has planned to include in the ongoing policies and programs, and the FY 2019-20 Budget.
The Nepal Government is working extensively to create more and more job opportunities for its unemployed population.
Adding to the government’s efforts of conducting a series of targeted programs, the Public Service Commission (PSC) is preparing to announce vacancies for 8,000 posts in the first phase on May 29, 2019.
Vacancies for the posts will be announced in the fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth positions in both technical and non-technical categories.
The commission’s move comes in response to the uncertainty related to the recruitment of government staffers.
Meanwhile, the government is also coming up with a special youth program worth NPR 1 Bn for the coming fiscal year.
Hope the efforts of this kind will start addressing the gaps in the employment sector of Nepal.
