The Centre will ensure jobs for 5 crore unemployed people in the country by 2020, according to Bandaru Dattatreya, Union Minister for Labour and Employment.

He was speaking at a press conference after his ministry entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Posts (DoP) to make post offices as employment registration centres for unemployed rural youth, here on Sunday.

The target of providing 5 crore jobs will be achieved by a combination of measures such as digital solutions and regular job melas, the Minister said adding that job melas will be conducted across the country from next month on a large scale.

As per the MoU, a national career service portal will help the unemployed to register themselves. It will provide them access to a repository of career content on over 3,000 occupations across 52 sectors.
