The government launched an online portal for job seekers in the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector.
The portal – http://www.Eex.Dcmsme.Gov.In – will help the industry to find skilled manpower.
Ministry has developed this employment exchange portal for industries where job seekers can find employers or vice-versa.
The portal would also help industry reduce time and cost of searches for skilled manpower.
Currently this is only for manufacturing sector. Job seekers will not have to pay any fees. The industry would have to pay fees to use this portal.
The ministry is also thinking to provide this facility for services sector as well.
The ministry said that unemployed youth and even those who are in some kind of jobs continuously expressed concern that they were not aware about suitable opportunities particularly in the manufacturing sector at worker or operator level.
There has been momentum on skilling to reap the demographic dividend. The typical way of finding factory workers is to put up a poster next to the unit and hope that some unemployed skilled person would see it. While this may have worked in the past but this is no longer an efficient way in this digital age.
The MSME sector provides employment to a large section of population and contributes about 45 percent in the country’s total exports and about 40 percent in the manufacturing sector
