New Delhi: NITI Aayog is developing a portal that will connect 200 million blue-collar and grey-collar workers with job providers in line with the Prime Minister’s vision to provide them with a means of livelihood in their home states.
The move was triggered by the extreme distress faced by millions of workers who returned to their home states after the two-month nationwide lockdown was imposed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
NITI Aayog is developing seven technology products for the post-Covid-19 era, a government official told ET.
“Of these seven, presentations have been made to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Unnati, which is a job portal, and the Swasth app, which will provide the best healthcare facilities via a telemedicine platform, on Tuesday,” the official said.
