A job portal will be launched soon by the Delhi government to make job opportunities available to those who have lost employment during the lockdown. The labor minister in the Delhi government, Gopal Rai, made the announcement.
He said that the platform will be a common platform for companies who are job seekers and looking to hire.
The Delhi government will soon come up with a slew of reforms for the revival of the economy of the national capital. The economy has been affected adversely due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
Gopal Rai added that many migrant workers have moved out of Delhi and many people have lost their jobs because of the lockdown.
The Minister said that they have managed to arrest the spread of COVID-19 in Delhi. Now, the need of the hour is to bring the economy of the city back on track.
A similar portal has been launched by the Maharashtra government. On July 6 Uddhav Thackeray launched the Mahajobs. The portal aims at making employment opportunities and local manpower available to workers and companies, respectively.
The portal will also be helpful in the recruitment of semi-skilled, skilled, and unskilled employees.
The portal has been created to meet the manpower needs of the companies which have been facing the challenge of skill gap, according to the description available on the portal.
A 12-member expert committee was formed by the Delhi government, earlier this month, to explore economic reform measures. This was done to help businesses recover from the impact of COVID-19.
Counseling services by its education department to all residents of Delhi have been extended by the Delhi government. Educational and psychological counseling services have been provided by the department to the students through YUVA Helpline since 2006.
The government said in a statement that the Delhi government has taken this decision to help the citizens with mental health amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic has limited the physical movement of people and caused several damages in the employment sector.
The people who need support on emotional/educational/personal/psychological issues can call on toll-free numbers 10580 or 180116888 to get assistance.
The Delhi government also said that the identities of these people will be kept confidential.
