The district administration launched a new portal, RAAH (Rozgar Ab Aasaan Hai), its flagship initiative to increase accessibility to decent jobs, skills, government benefits, counselling, loans for self-employment of the marginalised sections.

The portal has been set up to serve as a one-stop platform to facilitate salaried and wage employment, self-employment, bank loans, skill development, career counselling, preparation for police/paramilitary examination and armed forces as well as guidance for study or work abroad.

This is for the first time that government departments and private employers have come together on a single platform to share their schemes, benefits, and job opportunities to assist the marginalised who may be a senior citizen, widow, drug abuse victim, physically challenged, crime survivor, natural calamity/disaster-hit, Covid-affected, etc.

The District Bureau of Employment and Enterprises, Patiala, under the Punjab Government’s Ghar Ghar Rozgar Mission will consider each registered candidate on a case-to-case basis and match their credentials with relevant jobs, skill courses, self-employment opportunities and government schemes.
