Rajasthan government is going to setup an Online Labour Employment Exchange portal for labourers. The department of Information and Technology (IT) and RSLDC have started developing portal for labour employment exchange to ensure providing jobs to migrant workers. With this online website, the mismatch b/w demand and supply of workers in the state will be addressed. The industrial units can raise their demands on the portal. The process to apply online for labourers by filling workers application / registration form will start soon.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has directed the officials to setup an Online Employment Exchange for labourers to enable them to get jobs during Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown. This employment exchange will meet the requirements of industries by providing manpower supply.
Till date, over 6 lakh migrant workers have returned to the state. CM asked for online mapping of labourers including construction workers who have been coming to Rajasthan or those going to other states.
Rajasthan Online Labour Employment Exchange Portal
It is the responsibility of the Rajasthan government to support workers during Coronavirus crisis. Moreover, it is also necessary to ensure availability of workers to bring industries back on track.
Workers Application / Registration Form
To ensure proper availability of labourers to industries and providing work to labour, CM Ashok Gehlot has announced to start a new Rajasthan Online Labour Employment Exchange Portal. Both the industries and labourers can register themselves on the exchange. As soon as the Online Worker Employment Exchange portal will start, we will update the process to fill labourers application / registration form here.
New projects of skill development should be designed to ensure that workers skill can be developed as per the current needs. CM directed the Rajasthan Skill and Livelihood Development Corporation (RSLDC) to impart short term training to inbound migrants and prepare them for local industries. All the data related to demand and supply side of workers would be put up on the Rajasthan Online Labour Employment Exchange Portal.
Due to nationwide COVID-19 lockdown, a large number of migrant workers have come to Rajasthan and even migrated to other states. The Labor Department should provide training to workers as per their qualifications and requirement of industries. This will enable labourers to get employed in various enterprises and earn their livelihood. Industries can raise their demand with certain skills on the portal. On the supply side, there are around 12.5 lakh registered unemployed persons in the state.
With special emphasis to bring reforms in labour laws, CM said that “The entire scenario of the industry has changed due to the lockdown and at the same time, there is a big challenge of labour planning. There is a need to change and bring reform in the purview of labour laws as per the need of the hour.” For this purpose, CM has given directions to make maximum departmental schemes and programs online.
Instructions have been given to the officials that in view of the situation arising due to COVID-19 Pandemic, an online ‘Labour Employment Exchange’ should be created in the state so that workers facing crisis due to #lockdown can get employment according to their skills
There are 4 lakh youths trained by RSLDC and we also have some youths who have been trained by Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs). There are 23.5 lakh building and other construction workers. Already 6 lakh migrant workers have come from Rajasthan to other states. The state govt. of Rajasthan will upload the data on the portal to address mismatch of demand and supply of workers.
