The Common Services Centers (CSC) has helped placement of around 75 skilled and semi-skilled workers from the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir with the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) under the Ministry of Defence.

In a statement, CSC said that the workers were sourced through its Gramin Naukri Kendras and registered on the CSC Gramin Naukri Portal and will be engaged in road construction activities under the BRO in Leh and Ladakh.

"The BRO is a premier Government agency under the Ministry of Defence for creation of road infrastructure in border areas of the country. The BRO approached CSC with the requirement of workers for construction of road infrastructure in the UT of Leh Ladakh," it said.

It noted that due to the reverse migration during the Covid-19 pandemic, the pace of work under the BRO has been impacted and it has been looking for workers with requisite skills in road construction as well as unskilled workers.

The workers were sourced from the Jammu region through the CSC Naukri Kendras and registered on CSC Gramin Naukri Portal.

Apart from the current batch from Jammu, another group of candidates from Punjab is being prepared for employment in Leh, the CSC statement said.

Launched in early May, the CSC Gramin Naukri Portal was initiated during the second lockdown to assist rural youth to find employment as drivers, cooks, domestic helps, salon workers, delivery staff, hospitality and food joint workers, office peons among others. Currently, 3.9 lakh job seekers have been registered on the portal.

Commenting on the rural employment initiative, Dinesh Tyagi, CEO, CSC SPV, said: "In view of the current situation of Covid pandemic where lakhs of migrant workers, especially youth, have either left or lost their jobs and returned to their villages, CSC Gramin Naukri Portal strives to provide employment opportunities for rural youth by partnering with public and private enterprises."
