Delhi Govt launches e-Portal: On Monday 27 July, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched an e-portal, Rozgaar Bazaar, for work seekers and recruiters, to assist companies and individuals adversely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Delhi Govt launches e-Portal – Reportedly speaking to the press through video conferencing, Kejriwal said it will help put people together on a common platform: jobs.delhi.gov.in.
Kejriwal said, “There are people who want jobs and there are traders, businessmen, professionals, contractors who are not getting the right person for their work. This portal will fill this gap by bringing them together on one platform.”
According to officials from the labor department, the platform services will be made available free of charge.
Noting that the economy has resumed but migrant workers have yet to return for work in Delhi, Kejriwal reportedly said:
“Today, construction work has started but workers are missing, employees who lost their jobs are not being able to find new ones. Similarly, those searching for jobs can also register on this website, enlisting their experience, qualifications, and areas in which they are interested in finding work. There are many categories on the portal, I believe this will help every sector and job-seekers.”
Also reportedly the Delhi government is working on a special order to enable street vendors to reopen their businesses.
Kejriwal reportedly urged entrepreneurs, government departments, and NGOs to get Delhi back on track, while at the same time requesting migrant workers to return to their native places.
The chief minister also praised the fact that, without resorting to another lockdown like other states, Delhi was able to get the pandemic situation “under control” in the National capital.
