Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Dec 11: In a Public Interest Litigation regarding skill development of youth, Division Bench of State High Court comprising Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Tashi Rabstan today directed respondents to examine the Yuva programme undertaken by the concerned authorities in Delhi and the possibility of utilizing the similar module in Jammu and Kashmir given the fact that the infrastructure would be available with the police authorities.
When the PIL based on the news-item published in EXCELSIOR came-up for hearing, Division Bench observed, “a status report dated 11th December, 2018 has been filed by Nissar Ahmed, Under Secretary to Government, Department of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj. Several steps purported to have been taken under the Himayat scheme for skill development programme of youth”.
DB directed Member Secretary, J&K State Legal Services Authority to file a status report regarding the steps taken under the Himayat scheme. “He shall also call for the reports from all the Secretaries of the District Legal Service Authorities, compile all the reports and place the same before this court on the next date of hearing”, the DB added.
Senior AAG H A Siddi-qui, who appeared for respondents submitted that so far as the scheme for skill development and employment opportunities is concerned, the same is being implemented through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
On this, DB found that in the memo of parties, Secretary to Government, Department of Youth Services and Sports was erroneously arrayed as party respondent. Accordingly, DB directed deletion of Secretary Youth Services and Sports from the array of the respondents and substitution with the Secretary to Government, Department of Housing and Urban Development Department.
DB also accepted the oral request of Senior AAG and directed impleadment of Union of India through Secretary, Ministry of Rural Development as respondent. The DB directed respondents to examine the Yuva programme undertaken by the concerned authorities in Delhi and the possibility of utilizing the similar module in the State of Jammu and Kashmir given the fact that the infrastructure would be available with the police authorities.
