One year to the day the @INCPunjab came to power, @capt_amarinder govt today gave appointment letter to 9592 unemployed youth, taking total jobs generated so far to 161,522 as part of its ‘Ghar Ghar Rozgar’ mission.

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh took the government’s flagship `Ghar Ghar Rozgar te Karobar’ scheme to the next level with the distribution of 9592 appointment letters, taking the total number of jobs generated during the year to 161522.

The event, to mark the distribution of the appointment letters at the culmination of the 2nd Mega Job Fair, coincided with the first anniversary of the Congress victory in the last assembly polls, which paved the way for the installation of the Captain Amarinder government and restoration of peace and stability in the state.

The 2nd Mega Job Fair was organized by the government at 150 venues from February 20 to March 8. Several major corporates, including Maruti Suzuki, Microsoft, ICICI Bank, Amazon, etc, used the platform to hire talent.

Addressing the state-level function, the Chief Minister congratulated the youngsters who had got their appointment letters, while thanking the large number of corporates which hired the youth as part of the job fairs.

Pointing out that more than 1.61 lakh youth had got jobs in the first year of his government, which was no mean achievement, the Chief Minister said that with his government now fully settled in, the process of giving employment to all the unemployed youngsters would pick up speed. He expressed happiness that in addition to other sources of employment, including university placements, another 90000 jobs were being generated by the 15000 MSMEs that had registered themselves with the Industries Department during 2017-18.
