Fear of Unemployment in Youth
Youths are getting worried of losing employment opportunities after the announcement of Vidya Sambal Yojana in Rajasthan. As the recruitment would be on a contractual basis, so there is a fear of unemployment among youths. The unemployed youths in the state were waiting for filling up of vacant teacher posts through conduct of competitive exams. This is because after passing the test, the job opportunity would be a permanent one.
But with the announcement of providing temporary jobs to the unemployed youths, candidates are worried about their future prospects. Various students organizations as well as unemployment federations are opposing this move and wants Vidya Sambal Yojana to get closed.
Computer Degree Holders Worried due to Contractual Employment

According to youth federations, govt. must not recruit guest faculty but it has to conduct exam and then recruit 14,000 faculty on permanent basis.
