Besides giving the disbursement of the monthly allowance, the scheme aims at providing the youngsters with apprenticeship opportunities and skill development. The scheme’s web portal has already received registration from more than 2 lakh unemployed youth, India Today reported.

Reports say that annually Rs 1,200 crore will be spent on the Mukhyamantri Yuva Nestham scheme. Only diploma or degree holders between the age of 22 and 35 are eligible to receive the unemployment allowance, reported Business Today.
