First ever ‘Punjab Job Helpline’ for unemployed youth

The Punjab government has launched a unique Job Helpline number for the unemployed youth in the state – the first-of-its-kind in the country. This came as a part of the government’s flagship program ‘Ghar Ghar Rozgar’ program. 

To support this initiative, the government has setup a 110-seat backend call centre that aims to call 75,000 mobile and landline numbers daily.
