Udupi, Aug 22: Unemployment is the biggest issue faced by the young generation in this time of fierce competition. The alternative to this is self-employment. However, this becomes difficult for rural youth as they lack the skill and cannot get entry into professional institutes, which offer courses on service-oriented industries due to minimum entry level eligibility issue. Though some of the youth are involved in business, they need to update their market knowledge and developments in technology. If the chances of self-employment should increase, then it is necessary to provide the skills required for the same from their student life itself," said Manjunath R Nayak, director of Synd rural self-employment training institute (SyndRSETI), who participated as the resource person in the self-employment training awareness
