12000 jobs to be offered to youth during six job melas in September

JALANDHAR: Deputy Commissioner Jalandhar Varinder Kumar Sharma today asked the District Bureau of Employment and Enterprise (DBEE) to launch a vigorous awareness campaign for ensuring maximum participation of youth in the upcoming job fairs during the month of September.

The Deputy Commissioner said that in order to provide jobs to the unemployed youth under state government’s ambitious ‘Ghar-Ghar Rozgar scheme’, the district administration was organizing six Mega Job fairs to offer 12000 jobs to the youth in Jalandhar during the month of September. He said that on September 19 Job fair would be held at Shahpur Campus of CT Polytechnic, on September 21 at Government ITI Mehatpur (Nakodar), on September 24 at DAV Institute of Engineering and Technology, on September 26 at DAV University, on September 28 at Lyallpur Khalsa College and on September 30 at District Industry Centre. Sharma said that this was a golden chance for the unemployed youth to get gainfully employed by participating in these melas.

The Deputy Commissioner said that for this the DBEE must identify the unemployed youth through a viable mechanism and ensure that they participate in these melas. He said that adequate publicity of these melas should also be made so that more and more youth could know about these job melas. Sharma envisioned that mega job fairs being organized by the state government would act as a catalyst to open new vistas of employment for the youth of the district.

The Deputy Commissioner said that this was a noble initiative by the state government led by Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to provide job to every household under Ghar Ghar Rozgar Yojna. He said that in this first of its kind initiative the industrial giants would be visiting the campuses of colleges to select youth for job. Sharma said that it would serve two purposes of providing jobs to needy youth of district on one hand and providing skilled manpower to cope up with the needs of local industry on the other.
