Gujarat has continued to be top in job placements notified through employment exchanges in India for the seventh consecutive year in 2009, Gujarat Government’s spokespersons ministers Jaynarayan Vyas and Saurabh Dalal said in Gandhinagar today.
As per the latest annual report of the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment, Gujarat provided jobs through the exchanges to 2.14-lakh people during 2009, as against that to 3.09-lakh in the entire country. This amounts to a whopping 71.4% of the total vacancies filled through employment exchanges.
Tamil Nadu that stood second in the country way behind Gujarat, provided jobs through exchanges to merely 22,000, Maharashtra came third with 10,800 and Andhra fourth with just 1,300 placements.
In 2008 too, Gujarat topped in job placement through exchanges to 2.18-lakh, out of total 2.91-lakh in the entire country.
This successive extra-ordinary feat is made possible because of the vibrant Gujarat’s march to economic and industrial progress under the leadership of Chief Minister Narendra Modi, keeping Human Resources and Human Development Index in mind, the Ministers said.
