Which state government launched the ‘One Family One Job’ scheme on 12th January 2019, under which for every family one government job has been allotted?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option D
On January 12, 2019, Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling launched the ‘One Family One Job’ scheme, under which for every family one government job has been allotted, in Gangtok. New recruits were taken for Group C and Group D posts in 12 departments. As part of the scheme, a “Rojgar Mela” (employment fair) was organised at the Paljor stadium in Gangtok, where over 12,000 unemployed youths, from 32 constituencies, were handed out appointment letters. Letters were given to families, by the Department of Personnel, which do not have a government job. He also announced that over 25,000 already employed but unregularised government employees would also be subsequently regularised within 2019. Thus, Sikkim became the first state in the country to carry out such a programme for the people entitling them to state government employee benefits.
