In a bid to keep unemployment in the city under control, the Delhi government has unveiled its plans to create a first-of-its-kind digital job-matching platform to help youth find employment in entry-level jobs. The tender for the development of the Delhi Government’s ‘Rojgar Bazaar 2.0’ portal was floated recently.
The job portal will employ the use of artificial intelligence (AI)-based job-matching services and end-to-end employment-related services to help the youth of the city gain relevant employment opportunities.
This is a second version of the Government’s Rojgar Bazaar 1.0 portal launched last August. According to the Delhi government, the platform turned out to be a lifeline for the unemployed population of the city along with the small-scale businesses of the city. He also reported that over 14 lakh job seekers registered on the portal, while 10 lakh jobs were posted on it. Major companies, including Flipkart, Amazon and HDFC Bank have posted jobs on the portal last year.
However, with this version, the portal will see the inclusion of skilling, career guidance, skill credentialing and automated analytics services, for the employment seekers. It will also offer end-to-end employment-related information to people seeking employment.
To cater to the needs of people employed in the unorganised sector, who may not necessarily have access to or any know-how of the operation of the digital platform, the Government also plans to establish physical centres in the city.
