Belagavi: Karnataka’s Prime Minister Basabaraji Bonmai announced on Thursday that the state government plans to introduce a new employment policy shortly. This will give momentum to the state’s job creation and reduction of unemployment.

He said the government will encourage such institutions engaged in creating more employment opportunities in the future.

The Prime Minister also said that higher education and professional courses need to be upgraded to global learning standards, and the higher education and skills development departments are working in line with this effect.
In doing so, CN Aswath Narayan, Minister of Science and Technology, Higher Education and Skills Development, said it was the government’s responsibility to ensure that students found jobs commensurate with their skills and education levels. .. This is the overall idea of launching a “work for all” program by the government.
He said six universities in the state would be upgraded to “prominent universities” status and seven government-run engineering departments would be further developed to the level of IIT in Karnataka.
Narayan said the government will devise an action plan within a month to develop the Vishweswalaia Institute of Technology, which is headquartered in Belagabi.
