Every time a new government comes in power promises for jobs but unfortunately can’t make them fulfil. This time Modi has made it possible by launching Start up India Scheme where people can start their own business instead of looking for jobs.

This scheme follows the Start up India Scheme. Where Start up India scheme helps people to set up their innovative businesses on the other the PMYY scheme helps the people to learn and develop the skills needed to proceed with the business.
