The Delhi government will provide Rs 2,000 to 3.5 lakh students who want to establish their own business

The Delhi government

New Delhi: Manish Sisodia, the Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister of Delhi, announced on Monday that the Seed Money Project, a Delhi government initiative to improve students' business skills, would provide Rs 2,000 in seed money to 3,50,000 students across 1,000 government schools in the Union Territory.Sisodia said at a press conference that the Delhi government launched the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum two years ago, with the goal of students leaving school as job providers rather than job seekers.

"This curriculum has made a huge difference in the last two years. A child started making masks, another started teaching yoga. A 12th pass girl Kajal has created her own accounting company and is giving jobs to 20 people, she has a turnover of Rs 15 lakhs. An important component of this curriculum is the Seed Money Project," he explained.The minister told that the seed money idea originated as a pilot project at a school in Khichdipur, where pupils were given thousands of rupees to begin their own business."41 children of the same school started seed money investment by forming nine groups.

All of them are running in profit. This is important because, in our country, the solution to unemployment is found politically," he added.Under the pilot project, each child at Khichdipur School was given Rs 1,000 as seed money. Sisodia has raised the amount to Rs 2,000, and the seed money project will start on Tuesday in all Delhi government schools.
