The Delhi government had introduced this web portal to make job opportunities available to those who lost employment due to the COVID-19-induced lockdown.
The portal provides job-seekers with an opportunity to connect with employers via phone or WhatsApp and has two available options:
1. I want a job.
2. I want to hire.
The portal had attracted around 51,403 job-seekers within the six hours of the launch.
During the launch, Delhi CM had also requested the labourers who had migrated to their states during the lockdown to come back and resume their jobs.
