About Rozgar Mela
A Rozgar Mela is a programme under National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) through the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) where a number of employers and job seekers come together for the purpose of applying and interviewing for jobs. Defined more precisely, a Rozgar Mela is an employment strategy to fast-track the meeting of job seekers and employers.
Rozgar Melas are typically held in large assembly halls with a booth for each employer. At the front of each booth is a table that displays company brochures and information. Generally, various company representatives staff each booth, standing behind tables as they talk to job seekers. Some companies decorate their booths with banners and signs. Rozgar Melas range in size from 5 – 100 employers with many hundreds of job seekers. Even small Rozgar Melas can be busy events with lines of job seekers waiting to see company representatives.

The Prime Minister further mentioned that preparations are in full swing to hand out more than 700 appointment letters in other departments in the coming days.
The Prime Minister highlighted the measures taken by the central government in the last 8 years to promote employment and self-employment and said that the ‘Rozgar Mela’ being organised in different parts of the country from October 22 is a part of that. “Under this campaign”, the Prime Minister said, “more than 10 lakh appointment letters will be given by the central government in the next few months in the first phase.” He informed that the government has expanded the scope of the business environment in J&K to boost employment.
Increased Rozgar Opportunities with better Connectivity in J&K
The Prime Minister further added that the new Industrial Policy and Business Reforms Action Plan has paved the way for Ease of Doing Business which has given a tremendous impetus to investment here. “The pace at which work is being done on development-related projects will transform the entire economy here”, the Prime Minister added. He gave examples of projects that boost connectivity to Kashmir from trains to international flights. The Prime Minister pointed out that international flights from Srinagar to Sharjah have already begun. He further added that farmers here have also benefited a great deal from increased connectivity as it is now easier for the apple farmers of Jammu & Kashmir to send their produce outside the region. The Prime Minister also pointed out that the government is working towards promoting transport through drones.
