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.
