Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched National Career Counselling Portal as part of an endeavor to modernize all government-run employment exchanges. The National Career Service Portal, which is being set up under the National Career Service (NCS) project, aims at transforming all the government-run employment exchanges. The web portal will act as a one-stop platform for both job seekers and job providers where registration can be done online.
National Employment Service comprising a network of 978 Employment Exchanges will be transformed into National Career Service (NCS) by leveraging information technology to improve the delivery of services. The previous system required job seekers to physically visit the Employment Exchanges for registration, verify their records and wait for opportunities to come. Similarly, the employers had to visit Employment Exchanges for posting job vacancies and obtaining a list of eligible candidates with little flexibility. Thus, both job seekers and employers were unsatisfied.
