ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE (IC) FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT 

(SHRI SANTOSH KUMAR GANGWAR)

(a) & (b): Administrative and financial control of Employment Exchanges lies with the respective State/U.T Governments. As per the information received from the States/UTs, the number of job-seekers, all of whom may not necessarily be unemployed, who got registered themselves in employment exchanges in the country to the extent available is given at Annexure.

(c) to (f) : Government has implemented the National Career Service (NCS) Project which comprises a digital portal that provides a nation-wide online platform for the job seekers and employers for job-matching in a dynamic manner. The project inter-alia, includes establishment of Model Career Centres (MCCs) in collaboration with States and other institutions to deliver employment related services like organizing the job fairs, mobilising employers, providing the career counselling at district level, etc. The Ministry gives grant-in-aid to the State Government for establishing the Model Career Centres. The interlinking of all employment exchanges with the NCS Portal has also been evolved for effective implementation of the NCS Project. Under this component, Ministry gives grant-in-aid to the State Governments for organizing job fairs, up-gradation of Information Technology and refurbishment of infrastructure of the existing Employment Exchanges.

Annual Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) on employment and unemployment is conducted by National Statistical Office (NSO), Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation. As per the PLFS 2018-19, the estimated unemployment rate for persons of age 15 years and above on usual status (principal status + subsidiary status) basis in the country is 5.8%.

Government provided an economic package of more than rupees twenty seven lakh crore and has advocated for Atamnirbhar Bharat. Atamnirbhar Bharat is based on Economy, Infrastructure, System, Vibrant Demography and Demand to create jobs for the youth.

Aatmanirbhar Bharat RozgarYojna (ABRY) Scheme has been launched with effect from 1st October 2020 to incentivize creation of new employment along with social security benefits and restoration of loss of employment during COVID-19 pandemic. This scheme reduces the financial burden of the employers of various sectors/industries including MSME and encourages them to hire more workers. Under ABRY, the Government of India is providing for a period of two years both the employees’ share (12% of wages) and employer’s share (12% of wages) of contribution payable or only the employees’ share, depending on employment strength of the EPFO registered establishments.

To boost employment and livelihood opportunities for migrant workers returning to villages, in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak, Government of India had launched Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan on 20th June 2020. The Abhiyaan focuses on durable rural infrastructure and providing modern facilities like internet in the villages.

PM-SVANidhi Scheme facilitates collateral free working capital loan upto Rs.10,000/- of one-year tenure, to approximately, 50 lakh street vendors, to resume their businesses.
