People lost jobs due to the Corona epidemic, forcing workers to leave the metros and return to their native states. But now the Technology Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC), an autonomous organization working under the Department of Science and Technology, has developed a job portal named Saksham to help them. MSMEs across the country will provide a common platform by connecting the needs and skills of the workers.
Through the Saksham app, workers will be able to directly connect with MSME (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises), which will provide employment to about 1 million people. With the help of this portal, labor contractors coming in the middle of the process of getting the job done to the workers will be eliminated, and will help to identify the skill efficiency level of the workers and develop skill cards for them. This portal will reduce the difficulties faced by workers while searching for jobs in the MSMEs around them.
Through this portal, the work of connecting laborers of that area and MSME through WhatsApp will be done. After this people will get information about the available jobs and opportunities in their area. TIFAC Executive Director Pradeep Srivastava stated that SAKSHAM was prepared during the Corona epidemic. He said that it felt the need to see the problem of migrant laborers in the epidemic. Pradeep said that the platform has been designed keeping in mind the way the coronavirus epidemic forced millions of laborers to leave their jobs and return home.
This portal has linked MSMEs across India through a map of that region. Using data on the availability of jobs and the skills required, the portal will inform people of various fields about the potential employment opportunities available there. To take advantage of this facility, help can be taken by sending Hi message to 7208635370 WhatsApp number. Once a person sends a message to this WhatsApp number, the person is asked for information about their work experience and skills through chatboat. Based on the information received, the Artificial Intelligence System will give the user information about the job available in the near future.
