Join hands to revive economy: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: In just four days since Delhi government launched its job portal ‘Rozgar Bazaar’ to bridge the gap between job providers and job seekers, 8,783 employers have posted more than 2.5 lakh vacancies and nearly 3.7 lakh job seekers have registered on the portal.
Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday also met representatives of 28 industrial associations of Delhi and urged them to join hands with the government in reviving the capital’s economy. Kejriwal listened to the suggestions made by the industry representatives and assured them of full support to ensure their operations return to normal, the government said in a statement.
While acknowledging that these are challenging times, Kejriwal stressed on how Delhi defeated corona by coming together and the need of collective efforts of all the stakeholders, including industries, individuals, factories, businesses and governments, to work together towards the economic revival, the statement added.
The chief minister assured industry representatives that he will personally go through each of their suggestions to revive Delhi’s economy and if need be, get Centre’s support too, the statement said.
He said that many firms, businesses and industries are facing the issue of finding the right labour and manpower. On the other hand, those who lost their jobs during the lockdown in Delhi have not been able to find the right platform for better opportunities, he added.
“I was watching on a TV channel that an owner of a jeans manufacturing unit said that he had a staff of 35 people in the unit, out of which only three are still working. He said that he was not able to find manpower due to which his manufacturing unit was still shut. He posted 35 job vacancies on the Delhi govt’s job portal and received more than 190 calls. I believe that our economy will receive a major push,” Kejriwal said.
Among the nearly four lakh job-seekers who have registered on the portal, the highest number is for back office and data entry jobs, followed by customer care and tele-caller jobs, sales, marketing and business development, education-related jobs, accountants, HR and office administration jobs, warehouse, delivery services and logistical support, receptionists and IT, hardware and network engineers.
The largest number of openings are for sales, marketing and business development jobs, followed by customer care and tele-caller jobs, among others.
The statement said that industry associations lauded Kejriwal’s efforts in controlling the Covid situation in Delhi. They also appreciated the launch of the job portal, the statement added.
Representatives of Confederation of Indian Industry, Badli Industrial Estate Association, Narela Industrial Complex Welfare Association, Okhla Chamber of Industries, Apex Chamber of Commerce and Bawana Manufacturers Welfare Association were among those present.
