Govt planning to set up employment centres at rural haats

To create awareness about govt programmes through nodal points

by Arjit Singh Bhambra

The government and industry associations are planning to create nodal points in rural haats of every district, where job providers can meet local job seekers in order to provide employment and carry out skilling or re-skilling activities, as per a report in Economic Times. Haats are traditional open air trading venues in villages. The government, which has been facing criticism about the jobless growth, is also planning to use the haats for creating awareness about its flagship programmes among themasses. The proposal is to be discussed at FICCIs 10th Global Skills Summit to be held in New Delhi on 15 September 2017.
