To be a part of the program, unemployed Nepalese Citizens or low-income ones in the age group 18-59 can apply at their respective ward offices at local level until 16 March.
Three major schemes of PMEP
AT least 100 DAYS of EMPLOYMENT IN ONE FISCAL YEAR
Nepali citizens of 18 to 59 years of age will be given employment for at least 100 days in a fiscal year, in coordination with the private sector, as per their qualification and interest areas. The government will also provide required skills and knowledge for a particular job so that after completing the 100 days, one can move to a permanent job.
Under this scheme, unemployed jobseekers can register their names to receive livelihood allowance. A person can get this allowance if not even a single member of his/her family has a job with minimum salary or no one in the family is self-employed. Likewise, only a person who belongs to a family earning less than the minimum government ceiling can claim for this allowance. One can receive this allowance from their representative local units.

In order to establish a culture of respecting all kinds of work in the country, the government will be conducting ‘culture of appreciation’ campaign. Under this campaign, the government will conduct awareness programs and other various events from which a message of respect all kinds of work will be conveyed to the public.
