Chandigarh, July 30

As nearly 2 lakh job seekers applied on the state government portal in the past two months due to loss of jobs amid the lockdown, the Punjab Government has decided to resume its 'Ghar Ghar Rozgar Yojana' by organising the 6th State Level Mega Job Fair from September 24 to September 30, across the state.

Due to Covid-19, the Department of Employment Generation, both physical and virtual platforms, would be used to hold the job fairs while following all precautionary guidelines. The government has set the target to provide employment to 50,000 youth, said Charanjit Channi, Employment Generation Minister.

In case the situation deteriorates and conducting physical job fairs is found non-feasible, the process till the stage of initial online participation would be undertaken and final physical part would be conducted post Covid.

Employers would be asked if they want to conduct virtual interviews/ group discussion/ online test etc or physical interview or combination of both. The candidates and employers who don't have means/ technology to undertake such interviews etc will be facilitated at the DBEE office.

Rahul Tiwari, Secretary, Employment Generation-cum-Commissioner 'Ghar Ghar Rozgar Yajana', said jobseekers can apply from August 28 to September 15. All details of the job seekers and vacancies collected from the employers would be made available on the portal, he added.
