Online headhunter Monster India and ITC e-Choupal, a digital platform for farmers, have tied up to launch a website for job seekers in rural India.
The website has been named Rozgarduniya.com, the companies said in a joint statement on Tuesday.
The website will provide a platform for corporates to access rural talent.
"We believe Rozgarduniya.com will act as a catalyst and play an instrumental role in the government's vision of inclusive growth in India," said Sanjay Modi, managing director of Monster.com (India, Middle East and Southeast Asia region).
"We hope to expand this offering to nine states and 40,000 villages through the ITC e-Choupals in the future," he added.
ITC's agri business division head S Sivakumar said his company was "delighted" to share e-Choupal's rural reach with Monster India. Rozgarduniya.com will be launched in English and Hindi.
Subsequently, the portal will be available in other regional languages, the statement added.
