National Service Programme gets extension
The approval came yesterday during a weekly cabinet meeting held at Bangladesh Secretariat chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Cabinet Secretary Md. Shafiul Alam briefed the reporters after the meeting at the secretariat on the new developments. “The educated but unemployed youth, who have at least passed SSC, will get the facilities for two years of temporary employment after a three month training under the NSP scheme,” said cabinet secretary. The first phase of NSP was inaugurated by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on March 6, 2010. Around 56,064 youth were employed at different government services during the first phase of NSP who received a daily allowance of Tk200 under the scheme. Currently 1,08,702 youth are employed at the second, third and fourth phase of the programme. Md. Shafiul said: “The fifth, sixth and seventh phases of NSP will be expanded to more districts and will begin by May 2017 after the completion of their short training.” The Cabinet Secretary, however, did not mention the targeted number of people that will be included under this extended scheme. He stated the government will provide an additional subsidy of approximately Tk330 crore for the new phases of NSP.
