As an alternative to the Govt. jobs, for the unemployed engineers (Degree/Diploma) the State Govt. launched a novel scheme during the year 2003 for providing gainful sources of employment by allotting work contracts to these unemployed engineers in various engineering/developmental related departments of the State. The first meeting in this regard was held on 6-8-03 under the chairmanship of the then Hon’ble Chief Minister where the Administrative heads of various departments participated. The Hon’ble Chief Minister directed the Employment Department to formulate a Self Help Group a comprising of 5 to 10 members. Accordingly the Directorate of Employment devised the following guidelines for formation of Self Help Groups:

  • The number of members of each Self-Help Group should not be less than 5 and not more than 10.
  • The Self Help Groups should be registered with the Registrar of Firms (Director I&C) as firms.
  • Members should necessarily be Diploma Engineer (3 years) or Degree holders.
  • None of the members or the group leader should be employed elsewhere.
  • The members of the Group should not be listed in more than one Self-Help Group in the same District or some other District.
  • All original documents be verified by Officer in-charge personally.
  • On the fulfillment of these conditions, the group would be registered as Self- Help Group and an Identity Card issued.

  • PWD (R&B) Department
