    Maharashtra Launches Web Portal For Job Seekers And Employers

    Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday launched a web portal 'Mahaswayam' that will cater to job seekers, employers, entrepreneurs, and training institutes who can avail details regarding skill development and employment.

    Earlier, the state government ran three different portals- Maharashtra State Skill Development Society (MSSDS) portal for Skill Development, 'Maharojgar' for employment and 'Mahaswayamrojgar' for entrepreneurship.


    These three have now been merged into 'Mahaswayam', making it easier for all beneficiaries as well as the state to keep a track of the demand and supply of workforce.

    Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Sambhaji Patil Nilangekar, who was also present at the launch said, "It was important to get all the three sectors on one platform to ensure that job seekers get a right platform and employers get right candidates".

    "For skilling, we need to keep a watch on the market demand and this will help us track the demand so that we can provide required skills to the youth," he added.
