Due to COVID-19 crisis, the Prime Minister’s vision to provide people with a suitable means of livelihood from their home states is slowly coming true. So to speak about it, Niti Aayog is developing various job portals, 200 million grey-collar and blue-collar workers which will be connected to each other.
The official has also highlighted “Of these seven, presentations have been made to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Unnati, which is a job portal, and the Swasth app, which will provide the best healthcare facilities via a telemedicine platform, on Tuesday.”
In the meetings with bureaucrats and experts, Modi has highlighted, “Stability of workers to prevent migration should be the focus. Attempts should be made to provide upskilling opportunities to these workers, besides education and other benefits.”
Furthermore, extending the scope of the platform to map worker requirements across the globe, the PM has also asked a question to the country by saying, “Can we develop this portal to map the global workforce requirement and connect Indian skilled workers to them, imparting additional skills like language, wherever needed?”
The other technology platforms that the government think-tank is developing using AI include lending to the lower middle-income class using direct benefit transfer data, a portal to provide higher education for all, enabling digital KYC verifications, a unified logistics interface platform, a portal to deliver multiple benefits to small businesses and an agri-stack for interoperability of agricultural data.

Two sections where the government has developed job portals to connect job seekers with employers are labour ministry and the skills development ministry. However, this will be limited to blue-collar workers and white-collar workers, respectively. Furthermore, states such as Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have also made job portals to ensure their people gets jobs within the states to reduce migration.
