5 percent of border area development funds will also be earmarked for generating job opportunities, Labour and Employment Minister Narendra Singh Tomar informed the Lok Sabha.
He said that in addition to the existing public employment generation schemes, the government is promoting labour intensive manufacturing and increasing employment opportunities to be generated by promoting tourism and agro-based industries.
But Supriya Sule (NCP), who had asked the question, said she was not satisfied with the reply as it sounded like a "bureaucratic write up".
But nothing much could be heard due to din created by the Opposition over a variety of issues like price rise during Question Hour.
