LUCKNOW || Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday launched the ‘Uttar Pradesh Startup Fund’ at his official residence 5 Kalidas Marg, an official said. He handed over the first instalment of Rs 15 crore to Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI).
On the occasion, he said that a new startup policy for agriculture, health, education and other important sectors should be made in the state so that youth of the state could connect with it. This move will further strengthen the possibilities of job creation. With this aim, the MoU has been signed between the state government and SIDBI.
The chief minister also said that a large number of migrant workers and labourers have come to Uttar Pradesh at this time. We have to provide them employment as per their skill. This will not only solve their problems, but the benefit of their energy and talent will also be provided to the entire country through Uttar Pradesh.
He said that our intention is noble, but along with the intention, decision-making ability will also have to be speeded up, only then we will be able to achieve the goal easily. He said that it is necessary to take timely decisions to pursue any good work with speed, otherwise, a large section is deprived of the benefits of the schemes. If the right decisions are taken on time, then a new direction can be given to the lives of many people, he added further.
He said that our new start-up policy is going to arrive and under this new policy we can motivate more and more youth to launch their own start-ups. Under the new package announced by the Government of India for MSMEs, the MSME Department of the state has taken the first step forward under which a huge online loan fair was organised and the process of giving a loan to entrepreneurs has been completed. Similarly, we have carried forward many other works as well, the CM said.
