Adding further, she mentioned that Indian students must be put on a right path to make them realise their dreams. Jammu & Kashmir is one of the states in India, which has multi-regional geographic and economic features that can be a boon to J & K students. With a motive to turn imaginations of budding entrepreneurs into realities, the government has simplified the procedures through which more newcomers can come forward to set up start-ups.

The minister was of the opinion that setting up new incubation centres in the Valley would generate employment opportunities for the youth. She noted that the start-up scheme had flexible exit policies. However, youth need to stick to their commitments and set up their units with utmost confidence and care. All the universities across the state must at least try to incubate two start-ups per year, she concluded.
