Kovind says definition of employment is changing, it is no longer about conventional jobs

Stating that the definition of employment is changing and it is no longer just a conventional job, President Ram Nath Kovind today said that creating self-employment opportunities for oneself and for others had become more feasibile.
"In order to encourage self-employment, the Government is providing assistance through various schemes," he said in  his address at the diamond jubilee celebrations of PGDAV College, University of Delhi, here.
He urged students to use these opportunities for their career development as well as to create opportunities for others.
Mr. Kovind said the 21st century is the age of the knowledge economy, pointing out that, in today’s era, the power of new ideas, new thinking and innovation is greater than money.
He pointed to the success of youth and their start-ups in online commerce, transport and tourism as examples. More than capital investment, it is human talent and ingenuity that is behind such success, he said.
The President said the DAV family of educational institutions has imparted education based on modern scientific perspectives, as well as inspired by Indian traditions, to successive generations in the country. 
"Sustainable development of human society is possible through the confluence of Indian values ??and modern science and technology. Indeed, the philosophy of the DAV institutions, which were first founded in the 19th century, can stand us in good stead in the 21st century as well," he added.
