The Cabinet on Wednesday cleared in principle an ambitious proposal to create 20 lakh jobs by 2026. A vital feature is a digital workforce management system that will connect prospective employers and job seekers.
The Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council and Kerala Knowledge-Economy Mission are the prime movers behind the project.
The Government will whet the project and make a budgetary allocation. The agencies are hopeful that the World Bank, Asian Development Bank and International Finance Corporation will fund the scheme.
