The VC asserted that it is all about taking right decision at the right and in right direction as there are plenty of opportunities, which they can avail with government’s assistance. Instead of waiting only for jobs, the youth should get acquainted with such aid and assistance from many windows of the government and based on the information make up their mind for starting own units, he said adding that time is very precious and it should not be wasted.

Talking to a group of youth, who had come to Corporation’s Head office at Jammu to get information regarding loan facilities, Balbir Ram Rattan told them that judicious use of time by the educated unemployed youth can bring progress and prosperity not only in their own lives but can prove to be boon for their families as well. He further said that a number of financial institutions are working for the sole purpose of providing monetary help to the unemployed males and females so that they are in a position to choose any field of their choice and take initiative to be self reliant.
