Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala will create 20 lakh quality jobs in the next five years through an ambitious mission, a senior state government official has said as he discussed a strategic paper for turning the state into a knowledge society.

Dr K M Abraham, Chief Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, has said the strategic paper for building a knowledge society was formulated as per the decision taken in the first cabinet meeting after this government came to power.

The Kerala Knowledge-Economy Mission of the government aims to provide skills training to students in higher education institutions and enable them to adapt to changing times, he said during a consultation with media early this week. The scheme will cover returnees who have lost their jobs abroad, those who have completed their studies here and have not been able to find employment and those who have had to drop out of school, Abraham said. According to him, the project is expected to cost around Rs 6,000 crore over five ye-ar-s.

“A Digital Workforce Management System (DWMS) will be set up as part of the Kerala Knowledge-Economy Mission. It will be a vast platform comprising of employers, job seekers and various types of trainers. In the private sector, giant employment platforms such as Monster.com and Freelancer.com are already operating internationally. Kerala will seek the help and cooperation of such global agencies for a new employment platform,” Abraham said.

He said the DWMS was not an alternative to the private sector, but the democratisation of opportunities by including those who do not have access to the private sector. He also said the great idea of a knowledge society would pave the way for the biggest social change to take place in Kerala after the People’s Plan.
