New Delhi: Finance Minister P. Chidambaram Thursday allocated Rs.1,000 crore to develop job-oriented skills among youth.

"Assuming that 10 lakh (one million) youth can be motivated in one year, skill trained youth will give enormous boost in employment and productivity," Chidambaram said, while presenting the federal 2013-14 budget to the Lok Sabha, the lower house of parliament.
