12.26 Lac youths between the age group of 22 to 35 years will benefit through this scheme. Registrations for enrolling will start by fourth week of August. The scheme won't be applicable to those paying provident fund. The scheme will be implemented in a very transparent manner like the pension scheme. The money will be credited directly into bank accounts through biometric authentication.

Simultaneously, government will impart skill development and train the youth in fields of their interests. Also, by integrating State and central schemes, apprenticeship programs will be rolled out through which the youth can get on-job training and upgrade their skills.
