A new project for the modernization of the Employment Exchanges is to be launched in Public Private Partnership. Announcing this while presenting the Union Budget in Parliament today, the Union Finance Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee said that this would enable a job seeker to register on-line from anywhere and approach any Employment Exchange.
Shri Mukherjee said that under the project a national web portal with common software will be developed. This will contain all the data regarding availability of skilled persons on the one hand and requirements of skilled persons by the industry on the other. It will help the youth get placed and enable industry to procure required skills on real time basis, he added.
