Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday formally inaugurated the District Bureau of Employment and Enterprises in Ludhiana. The Bureau would enable eligible job seekers to be gainfully placed, besides facilitating enterprising youth towards self employment ventures. It would also help strengthen the infrastructure of employment generation across the state as these state-of-the-art Bureaus, inaugurated simultaneously across districts, had replaced the archaic employment exchanges in the state. Captain Amarinder said the new Bureaus would prove to be a milestone in assisting the unemployed youth to get lucrative job opportunities in government, public and private sectors. With the hi-tech facilities at their disposal, these Bureaus would also be instrumental in guiding the young entrepreneurs to set up their ventures, the Chief Minister added. On the occasion, the Chief Minister also launched the citizen-centric Bilingual Portal Website and Android Mobile Application under Punjab Skill Development Mission (PSDM). The portal and app are fully equipped with options, information and interactive features to further improve Citizen-Government interface through E-Governance.Appreciating the initiative of PSDM, the Chief Minister said the online portal would go a long way in ensuring prompt delivery of public services in an efficacious manner on the one hand and make governance far more transparent and accountable on the other. He said the portal would also be beneficial in providing good governance and enhancing the ambit of skill development schemes in a result oriented and meaningful manner. The portal would also facilitate youth for enrollment in skill training and also impart information regarding candidates who have been successfully placed or facilitated for self-employment ventures.Keeping pace with emerging technologies and changing needs of the youth, the portal would be synced with the social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) of the Skill Development Mission to enable the youth for seeking requisite information for various skill training programmes initiated by the mission in collaboration with training partners. For the convenience of the youth, these online tools would help in selecting the location of the nearest Training Centre, listed district wise and TP Wise.
