Unemployment is a chronic problem in most of the developing and underdeveloped countries. Entrepreneurs play an effective role in reducing the problem of unemployment in the country which in turn clears the path towards economic development of the nation.

Entrepreneurship is the way to get an opportunity to lead an independent and honourable life and at the same time enable others in getting gainful employment.

Economic development of a country is the outcome of purposeful human activity.

Several schemes like Nehru Rozgar Yojna, National Rural Employment Programme (NREP), Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP) etc. have been initiated by the Government of India in this direction. The thrust of all these schemes is to eliminate poverty and generate gainful employment opportunities for the unemployed.
