The Uttar Pradesh government has no plans to give allowance in the state, Labour and Employment Minister said here on Friday.

In his response, the labour and employment minister said there is a system of registration of candidates interested in employment on the employment department portal on which a total of 25,39,619 candidates have registered themselves from March 19, 2017 to September 12, 2022.

A total of 6,68,269 candidates have been selected for employment by the Employment Department through employment fairs in the private sector, Rajbhar added.

Singh supplemented the question of whether the government would give allowance to the remaining candidates who were deprived of employment, in response to which the minister said there is no such plan.

In other proceedings, Deputy Chief Minister and Health Minister Brajesh Pathak informed the house that from January 1, 2022 to September 13, 2022, only one person died due to dengue in the state, adding that no deaths were caused due to malaria during this period.
