Job seekers in Himachal Pradesh will no longer be required to visit employment exchanges in person to get themselves registered as the state government has come up with a new online registration system, Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said on Monday.
The Department of Labour and Employment has developed a new software known as eEMIS (Employment Exchange Management Information System) which is fully operational and enables applicants to register online without any financial implications, Sukhu said.
“The practice of physically visiting employment exchanges for over 50 years is now being replaced with a more convenient online registration system,” he said in a statement.
Any person can register online or through Lok Mitra Kendra without physically visiting the employment exchange. The person can register and upload all the requisite documents online and would also be able to download the proof of registration online, the statement said.
Previously, even after registering online, individuals were required to visit the employment exchanges along with their original documents. However, the state government has recognized the potential of technology in simplifying the process and has taken steps to incorporate the same, the statement said.
The introduction of paperless registration will immensely benefit the youth, especially those residing in remote areas, by reducing the burden of travel and financial expenses, it added.
The chief minister said that the introduction of paperless registration in employment exchanges is expected to have a profound impact on job seekers, particularly the youth.
By harnessing the power of technology, the state government aims to foster inclusivity, reduce barriers to employment and support individuals residing in far-flung areas, he added.
