The UP Government is encouraging youth through various means to set up new start-ups under the Start-Up Policy 2020. As a result of this, where only 200 startups could be established in the entire state before 2017, a total of 3,406 startups have been set up in just three years. This has also provided employment to more than 22,000 people.
Additional Chief Secretary, IT and Electronics, Alok Kumar said here on Saturday that, “Startups established in 73 districts have provided direct employment to 10,000 people and indirect employment to 12,000 people. Soon, 100 new incubators will be set up in every district of the state. Currently, 18 incubators are functioning. By providing management training or other essential services through these incubators, new startup companies will be developed. After this, approx 10,000 new start-ups will be established which will provide direct employment to over 50,000 people and indirect employment to over 1 lakh people.”
At present, 1,154 startups have been established in Noida and a total of 1,219 startups have been established in Ghaziabad (533), Lucknow (500), and in the districts of Bundelkhand region and Purvanchal region of the state, he added.
Appreciating CM Yogi’s effort to provide employment to the migrants, Mr. Kumar said, “During the lockdown, when the entire country was facing death threat due to coronavirus, CM Yogi led the Uttar Pradesh government provided employment to more than 4 lakh migrant workers who returned to Uttar Pradesh from other states. The aim of the government was to provide such jobs to the migrant workers which fit their employment profession as well as promote self-employment opportunities in various sectors. For this, new startups are being provided to them in the information technology sectors, public services sectors, education, health, agriculture, textiles, and other important sectors.”
