Indian Governments Job Portal To Take 22 Months After Approval

It’s going to be a long wait, over 22 months, for the people to get access to Indian Governments a job portal. During the announcement of the Union Budget 2009-10 in July last year, the government had proposed to launch portal connecting employment exchanges in India, allowing job seekers to register and host their resume online, apply for jobs and also approach any job exchange. Similar services offered by job portals like Naukri, Monster, Timesjobs and Clickjobs have been a key driver of Internet adoption in India.

The 22 month (probably stretch-able) implementation timeline comes into effect only after the process has received an approval. Meanwhile, the project file is moving from table to table within the government:

— The National Institute for Smart Government (NISG) has been engaged as Principal Consultant for design
and development of the project.
— A detailed report has been prepared, and has received an “in-principle” approval obtained from Planning
Commission and the Department of Information Technology.
— The Minister for Labour & Employment reviewed the project on 8th October, 2009 and suggested
the implementation across India at one go instead of a phased manner.
— A meeting was held with the State Principal Secretaries dealing with employment for finalizing the
implementation strategy on 18th December, 2009.
— On 30th December, 2009, Secretary (Labour & Employment) took a
meeting to finalize the implementation strategy.
— Based on the discussions held, DPR has been revised by the Consultants and received during the last week.
— DPR is being finalized and will be processed further for obtaining necessary approvals.

So it will take at least two more years. Or maybe four.
