Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that the state government was working out plans to open a film city in the state for which a land spanning an area of 50 to 100 acres has been finalised.

To be located at Pinjore in the state, the proposed film city project would be carried out on a public-private partnership basis.

Meanwhile, to ensure that no youth remains unemployed in the state, the Haryana government has prepared a special six month exit strategy under the Saksham Yuva scheme as per which special efforts would be made for increasing employability of ‘Saksham Yuvas’ through their skilling, job readiness training and job linkage before they leave the scheme.
