Swarna Jayanti Shahari Rozgar Yojana (SJSRY) in India is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme which came into effect on 1 December 1997. The scheme strives to provide gainful employment to the urban unemployed and underemployed poor, through encouraging the setting up of self-employment ventures by the urban poor living below the poverty line.
The Ministry of HUPA currently runs an employment-oriented scheme, namely, SwarnaJayantiShahariRozgarYojana (SJSRY). This scheme, started in 1997, seeks to provide gainful employment to the unemployed and underemployed urban poor by encouraging skill development and self-employment and also through wage employment for construction of socially and economically useful public assets. Revamped in 2009, SJSRY has five components: (a) the Urban Self-Employment Programme (USEP), which targets individual urban poor for setting up micro enterprises; (b) the Urban Women Self-Help Programme (UWSP), which targets urban poor women Self Help Groups (SHGs) for setting up group enterprises and providing them assistance through a revolving fund for thrift and credit activities; (c) Skill Training for Employment Promotion amongst Urban Poor (STEP-UP), which targets the urban poor for imparting quality training so as to enhance their employability for self employment or better salaried employment; (d) the Urban Wage Employment Programme (UWEP), which seeks to assist the urban poor by utilizing their labour for construction of socially useful assets, in towns with less than 5 lakh population as per the 1991 Census; and (e) the Urban Community Development Network (UCDN), which seeks to assist the urban poor in organizing themselves into self managed community structures to gain collective strength to address the issues of poverty facing them and to participate in the effective implementation of urban poverty alleviation and social development programmes.
The SJSRY scheme is being implemented on a cost-sharing basis between the Centre and the States in the ratio of 75:25. Given the low allocations for the scheme, only about 2 lakh urban poor under skill development and 50,000 under self employment are being benefitted under SJSRY annually. The target under skill development of the urban poor is very small considering that the number of urban poor was estimated at 81 million in 2004-05 and that nationally a target of 500 million persons to be skill-trained by 2022 has been fixed by the National Council on Skill Development.
SJSRY will have five major components, namely- (i). Urban Self Employment Program me (USEP) (ii). Urban Women Self-help Programme (UWSP) (iii). Skill Training for Employment Promotion amongst Urban Poor (STEP-UP)
(iv). Urban Wage Employment Programme (UWEP)
(v). Urban Community Development Network (UCDN)
