Planning required to provide Employment to Unemployed

According to the annual report published by the Ministry of Labour and Employment for the year 2012-13, the rate of unemployment in Punjab and Haryana was about 48 (per 1000). In rural areas unemployment was at about 46 per 1000 and in urban belts at about 52 per 1000.

It comes as a deep disappointment that the male female unemployment disparity in urban areas is much higher than in rural sectors. In rural areas where about 67 (per 1000) women are unemployed this figure shoots up to about 149 (per 1000) in the cities.

One would imagine that setting up employment facilitation centres would resolve the issue. But a look at the current system reveals that not much is being done to tackle the core issue.

According to statistics from the Haryana Department of Employment, registrations at the Employment Exchanges have shown a significant decline   from about 1,71,974 in 2006 to 1,21,415. One look at the registrations-placements ratio and it is not difficult to understand why despite a high unemployment figure the state Employment Exchanges are not a big hit.

In this 7-year period, registrations were the highest in 2009 but the number of placements was also lowest in that year. While admittedly 2012 saw a placement rate almost double its previous year, only a meagre 13% of those who approached these exchanges finally ended up with jobs. The issue of female unemployment also throws up deep rooted issues that these exchanges are ill-equipped to combat.

The employment exchanges in their existing form have an immense outreach   the registrants here include women, candidates from backward classes, physically challenged candidates and candidates from all levels of education. This makes them best poised to plug the holes in the education-unemployment gap by completely transforming themselves into career management centres.

These career centres could function as placement cells for higher education institutes currently do. Adding value to these will increase their outreach spectrum and could supply employers all their staffing needs. From the candidate perspective this could be the ideal organization to associate with   government sanction, quality management and skills development opportunities, and employment. To be truly effective these centres should also be equipped to handle women's issues and boost female employment especially in the cities such as Ambala, Kurukshetra, Panchkula, Yamuna Nagar, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Sirsa, Rohtak, Karnal, Panipat, and Sonipat.

To grow and prosper, Haryana needs a self-reliant workforce; to develop that degree of confidence and such a range of opportunities, it is imperative that a change in approach be brought to employment and career. Employment seekers need to be empowered; women in particular must be encouraged to step out of their hearts and homes and take up their places in contributing to the workforce of the state. Career-management rather than employment is the path towards skills enhancement and ensuring that employment rates grow steadily higher. This is also the best portal for the youth of the state to gain an insight into the varied opportunities that await them and choose the right educational pathways.
