Singh also mentioned the initiatives and steps taken by the union government for generating employment in the country, which includes the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Rojgar Yojana (ARBY) launched in October 2020 to curb the loss of employment during the Covid-19 pandemic; Prime Minister Street Vendor’s Atmanirbhar Nidhi Scheme implemented in June 2020 to provide street vendors with a capital loan to restart their businesses.

Apart from this, in Budget 2021-22, the Production-Linked Incentive scheme was launched with an outlay of 1.97 lakh crore which would also have a potential for creating 60 lakh new jobs.
