  • Himayat is a training-cum-placement programme for unemployed youth in Jammu and Kashmir.
  • Youth will be provided short-term training for at least 3 months, in a range of skills for which there is good demand. 
  • At the end of the training, the youth are assured of a job and there is one year post-placement tracking to see how they are faring. 
  • The scheme aims to target 1, 00,000 youth in 5 years. 
  • Placements will be largely in the service sector both in J&K and outside the state.
