With India's demographics changing, with a larger section of population entering the workforce during 2020-2050, it is imperative to have policies that provide growth opportunities for job creation. The National Youth Empowerment Scheme provides financial assistance in partnership with public sector undertakings/enterprises on a matching basis to employ more young people in their work force by creating new jobs or upgrading existing jobs.
Over a two-year period, the National Youth Empowerment Scheme (NYES) aspires to provide at least 774,000 empowerment opportunities through direct youth empowerment.
National Youth Empowerment Scheme (N-YES) is a programme proposed by Indian government. The senior officers of Ministry of Defense, Cabinet Ministers, and the Ministry of Youth Empowerment attended the meeting called by PMO last month. N-YES is a step taken in the direction of youth empowerment which will provide military training to 10, 00,000 youths every year. This is to make them eligible for the defense services and hence provide employment in that field.
