Govt looks at second job scheme

The Rs 50,000-cr scheme will be for skilled rural workers. Even as the UPA government's flagship programme, the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS), is yet to deliver the desired results, the rural development ministry is giving shape to another ambitious scheme to generate jobs. The target this time is to provide employment to 50 million below poverty line (BPL) families over the next seven years.
