Reportedly, 31 schools in nine districts — Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Patiala, Sangrur, Hoshiarpur, Ferozepur, Rupnagar, and Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar — will participate in the program’s initial phase of implementation. Furthermore, he stated that the programme would start being used in all state-run institutions the following academic year. Under this scheme, children’s business ideas will be collected first, and those ideas would subsequently be discussed with seasoned industrialists.

“For a proposal that is found suitable, a group of eight students will be established, and they will receive full guidance,” said the education minister. According to Mr. Bains, the kids attending public schools in Punjab have the potential to transform both their nation and the entire world. He hoped that this scheme would not only provide job opportunities to the students of the government schools, but would also solve many of the state’s problems related to employment and economy.

Notably, a similar scheme has been run by the Aam Aadmi Party government of Delhi, where a lot of students have succeeded in attracting even some investors who were inspired by their business ideas. Moreover, these kinds of schemes play an important role in the lives of the school students. Subsequently, it focuses on making them capable of not only getting but even generating employment. 

On the lines of Delhi, now this scheme has been introduced in Punjab by the Bhagwant Mann government. Furthermore, it’s seen as one of the major steps taken by the state government for the welfare of the students. Moreover, transformation and innovation into the current education system, has been one of the topmost priorities for the Aam Aadmi Party.
