New Delhi: A Parliamentary panel has voiced
concern over the practice of direct recruitment by employers
bypassing the employment exchanges.
Parliamentarians participating in a meeting of the
Consultative Committee of the Ministry of Labour and
Employment also called for ensuring job only through
employment offices in the states.
The Committee was told that a Supreme Court verdict of
1996 allows employers to go for direct recruitment.
"They were assured for remedial measures," an official
release said without elaborating.
Addressing the Committee, Labor Minister Mallikarjun
Kharge said a holistic approach to skill development was
necessary so that training imparted is according to national
standards of quality and can meet the specific needs of
various sectors of economy.
