Oli unveils ambitious Prime Minister’s Employment Programme

Kathmandu, February 13

The government has unveiled its ambitious Prime Minister’s Employment Programme to guarantee 100 days of work for anyone who is unemployed.

As part of the programme, the government will provide a subsistence allowance (equivalent to 50 days of work) to those it cannot provide at least 100 days of work.

The programme’s implementation begins after the government counts the number of unemployed people in the country as it does not have the numbers. The Ministry for Labour, Employment and Social Security states that the government will hire employment coordinators at all 753 local levels to facilitate the programme. A total of 2,259 candidates have already been shortlisted by the ministry to work as employment coordinators, who will run the employment Service Centres at all local units. The main role of the centre will be to collect data on unemployment from March 15.

How is it going to work?

The Employment Service Centre will give a specific time period for the unemployed citizens to submit with their names. People in the 18 – 51 years age group, who aren’t employed, will be included in the programme.

The Employment Service Centre will then look for government projects looking to hire people. Projects, which are financed by the government, will have to inform the employment coordinator about its manpower needs.

Finance Minister Yuba Raj Khatiwada, says that for the process start rolling, certain amendments are needed in the Public Procurement Act and added that both the local and the provincial governments should work together.

The Employment Service Centre will provide employees as per the concerned projects’ needs. Those who don’t report to work recommended by the employment coordinator will be removed from the government unemployed list.

The employment coordinator will have to submit the names of the unemployed by June 25. If the government fails to provide a minimum of 100 days of employment to unemployed, it will give them subsistence allowance. They will be given the subsistence allowance based on the 50 days work.

The Employment Service Centre has until June 30 to submit the names of those who are eligible for subsistence allowance. A subsistence allowance of Rs 25,850 per year will be paid in a lump sum.
