He also stated that candidates are registered using their Aadhaar numbers. In his address to the trainees, the ADDC shed light on the Unnati project, stating that it gives skill training to current workers of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) intending to improve their abilities. 

In addition to emphasizing the aim of the training program, he stated that the government is launching several efforts to promote employment at the local level. 

The ADDC also advised the trainees to make the most of the training program and to not keep their new knowledge to themselves, but to share it with the rest of the adults of the district. 

The Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kupwara, Imam Din, who is also the District Programme Coordinator of MGNREGA and engaged with the applicants who are undergoing skill training under the UNNATI program.
