The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) department has asked the board to chalk out a proposal for implementation of a employment generation programme for providing employment to over 60,000 people by 2019 and furnish it to the government, said MSME additional secretary F.M. Nayak in a letter to the secretary of OKVIB.

The board has been asked to meet the target of creating 15,000 jobs every year, including 1,250 jobs every month.

The MSME department took the decision to enhance employment opportunities in the sector following the advice of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

Nayak asked the board to come up with a definite strategy for promotion of village industries so that more employment opportunities for the youths can be generated for the next four years.

During that period, the department would revive 60 khadi societies. It has also been decided to promote bee farmers in the state.

The government has targeted to promote 10,000 bee farmers by 2019. The board has planned to open sales outlets in major cities and towns to promote sale of its various products.

“It doesn’t have censorship and of course, the format of web series is very different from the format of films. So, it has great advantages and because of that, a viewer has the choice to watch something at home as well as something in theatres.”

Asked whether the growing popularity of the digital platform can pose a threat to full-length feature films, she said: “I think certain films will still run and I hope they do because I love cinema.”
