As Madhya Pradesh heads towards elections later in the year, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday launched a youth policy and youth portal during the “Youth Mahapanchayat” in Bhopal.
“No matter how many job forms you fill in a year, you will have to pay the fee only once,” he said.

He also said the Madhya Pradesh government would bring in the Mukhya Mantri Yuva Kaushal Kamai Yojana (CM skill-earning scheme).
Describing it as the world’s biggest apprenticeship scheme, he said: “Youths who have not got jobs after passing class 12 will be trained in different fields. They will get ~8,000 per month during the training itself. Registrations will start on the youth portal on June 1. People in the age group 15-29 will be eligible.”

The chief minister also said in competition students of government schools were left out in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (for medical colleges). The state government will make two merit lists on the basis of NEET results and 5 per cent reservation will be provided to students of government schools.
“I am not against English, but English cannot be forced in Madhya Pradesh,” he said.
