On Tuesday, Employment Minister Gopal Rai said that demonetization has affected Indian business as the fewer number of companies are being short-listed since 2017. The Delhi government’s mega job fair has recorded the matter, said Mr. Rai.

He also said that there are few staff members in various departments of Delhi government and 23-30 percent of the strength as recruitment could not be made because the government lacked power in the services matter.

“We will carry out a massive recruitment drive once the services matter come to us,” he said.

The Lieutenant Governor has recently given the power to the court to decide the jurisdiction over services matter.

Gopal Rai considers that the Center government should take necessary steps to provide jobs under private and public sectors.

On Tuesday the two-day long mega job fair was held at Thyagaraj Stadium. According to the  officials of the Employment Department, 79 companies screening 14,000 candidates attended the mega event. Among them 5000 were shortlisted for recruitment.

Mr. Rai further added that last year 89 companies attended that job fair and 6000 candidates get shortlisted.

The minister told the reporters that “This drop in numbers is because of demonetization which has destroyed businesses. The Modi government should take steps to provide jobs to the youth because it’s getting known as a job-snatcher government.”
