KOLKATA: For the North Eastern states, a centre for film production, animation and gaming will be set up in Arunachal Pradesh said Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, while presenting the Union Budget 2015 in Lok Sabha on Saturday.

The proposal by the Minister has been given a thumbs up by the industry players as they feel that Arunachal Pradesh should get promoted. “It is an encouraging step, no doubt about it,” said a media executive.

The blueprint might state in details all plans of the government for the film production, animation and gaming centre.

The government is also likely to launch a National Skills Mission through the Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Ministry. Jaitley said that the Mission will consolidate skill initiatives spread across several ministries. It will allow the government to standardize procedures and outcomes across 31 Sector Skill Councils, he added.

“India is one of the youngest nations in the world with more than 54 per cent of the total population below 25 years of age. Yet today less than five per cent of our potential workforce gets formal skill training to be employable and stay employable,” said Jaitley.

An Apprenticeship Training Institute for Women will be set in Haryana and Uttarakhand during the year 2015-16.

To enable all poor and middle class students to pursue higher education of their choice without any constraints of funds, a fully IT based Student Financial Aid Authority is proposed to be set up during the year 2015-16.

It will administer and monitor scholarships as well as Educational Loan Schemes, through the Pradhan Mantri Vidya Lakshmi Karyakaram to ensure that no student misses out on higher education for lack of funds.

Jaitley announced that the government will launch all India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Himachal Pradesh and Assam in the fiscal year 2015-16.

Similarly, to augment Medical Sciences in Bihar, another “AIIMS like” institute is proposed to be set in the state.

In his Budget Speech, the Finance Minister also proposed to set up an IIT in Karnataka and upgrade Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad into a full-fledged IIT.
