The Delhi government says that it is most concerned about the economic impact of the corona epidemic. Therefore, last year the employment market portal was launched to provide employment opportunities to unemployed youth.
In the month of June, due to the removal of restrictions imposed in the states regarding Corona, 80 lakh people have got employment again. In the months of April and May, 23 million people were rendered jobless due to the stringent restrictions imposed by the states.
According to the latest data from the Center for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), the number of people employed in salaried and non-salaried jobs in India rose to 3832 million by the end of June from 37.54 million recorded in May. (Delhi govt job portal)
