He visited Sogam, Chandigam, Devpur and Kupwara and was accompanied by district Manager, Quam Shah and his team.
During the tour Shavan interacted with entrepreneurs and youth who showed keen interest to start their own business with financial support from the government.
Speaking on the occasion, the MD said that government is keen to help the unemployed youth as per the policies and the youth should fully avail the benefits of the schemes.
“They shouldn’t wait for only government jobs as jobs are very limited,” he said adding that by starting own units the youth can become job providers in their localities.
Shavan further assured the participants that the department will provide hassle-free service to them but will be very firm in recovery of outstanding government money.
Some of the participants who are beneficiaries of loan schemes demanded waiving of loan interest in view of COVID-19 pandemic and the MD said that it is a policy matter which needs consideration at government level and not at directorate level.
