As lakhs of migrant workers have returned to their hometowns and the industry is reeling under labour crisis, authorities decided to organise the job fair and provide skilled candidates to the industry.

The principal secretary, technical education and industrial training, Punjab, Anurag Verma on June 9 instructed principals of all ITIs across the state to organise virtual job fairs and tie up with industries to know vacancies so that trained candidates can be provided to overcome manpower shortage. The virtual interviews will allow employers and candidates to meet and interact.

Inderjit Nagpal, member of government’s institute management committee of the Government ITI, Ludhiana, and city based industrial paint dealer, said, “There is a shortage of 30,000 to 40,000 workers here and to meet the demand, either the workers have to be brought back from their home state or new employees must be hired to complete production work. The hosiery and auto industries are reeling under crisis and require manpower to run their factories.”

As many as 2,780 candidates from different ITIs of the district have registered online against 2,215 vacancies in the 128 companies who have shown interest in hiring candidates.

Baljinder Singh, principal of Government ITI Gill Road said, “We have received overwhelming response from the candidates and industry and will be holding interviews next week. More than 1,200 candidates have registered for jobs such as machinist and welder.”

Anurag Verma, principal secretary, technical education and industrial training, Punjab, said, “These virtual job fairs will help the students get employed and help industries get skilled candidates.”
