The government and Labour and Employment Ministry are moving in right direction on the path to skill development and employment generation, Union Labour and Employment Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar said.
"Our Country has highest youth population in the world and every youth wants a job. Coming generations will not forgive us if urgent steps are not taken in the direction of employment generation," Gangwar said while addressing experts in a brainstorming session on employment generation strategies organised by VV Giri National Labour Institute (VVGNLI) in Noida on Wednesday.
Hailing demonetization, the Minister said the historic decision had also yielded good results during the last one year.
Gangwar said beneficiaries of EPFO and ESIC have increased to one crore in the last one year.
