This initiative of Uttar Pradesh Government succeeded and helped the laborers in regaining their lost confidence. Few achievements of this campaign are as follows: -
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, a huge number of migrant laborers returned to Uttar Pradesh. For State Government it was not easy to arrange the employment for migrants in such a short span of time. But it was easily made possible under the esteem guidance of Hon’ble Chief Minister, U.P. and the team of experts working tirelessly under his supervision.
To provide job opportunities to migrants, the most essential requirement was to collect the data of laborers and to maintain it according to their skills. To make the process of data collection easy and to ensure that the person undergoing the current situation can easily complete his/her registration on the portal, a new application was developed by Sewayojan Department www.sewayojan.up.nic.in which facilitated the laborers in getting registered with the department and get all the information related to employment easily.
