Direct public investment of 2 per cent of India's GDP can potentially generate 11 million jobs, nearly 70 per cent of which will go to women, according to a report released by Ficci Ladies Organisation (FLO) on Wednesday. The FLO also unveiled a roadmap for transforming India's care economy, including five key areas, leave policies, care service subsidies, investment in care infrastructure, skill training for care workers, and quality assurance mechanisms.

Govt may extend scope of PLI scheme to job-creating sectors: Deloitte

To incentivise the manufacturing sector and generate employment, the government may extend the scope of PLI scheme to include sectors like garments, jewellery and handicrafts in the forthcoming interim Budget, Deloitte said.

Leather, garment, handicraft, jewellery -- many of these sectors need PLI scheme to come in because they are the ones which are the highest employment generators. That will help lower income households as well as urban,"Wahi told PTI. Deloitte in its Budget expectations report said the government is expected to come out with measures to support sustainable growth in income amongst rural households, thereby boosting rural economy's disposable ...

The Meghalaya government will soon announce an IT policy which will benefit investors and create employment opportunities in the state, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said on Friday. Addressing a programme here, he said investors will be provided incentives in terms of capital investment, GST and electricity tariff, among others, under the policy.

Under the CM-ELEVATE program, the state government plans to provide financial support to 20,000 startups and businesses, including those in the IT sector, in the future, Sangma said.
