Students B Tech, MCA, MBA and Pharmacy can participate in the drive to be organised for the first time.

“The government has formed a committee under the chairmanship of Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT) vice-chancellor to finalise the modalities for the recruitment drive. The other members of the committee will be Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) and Directorate of Technical Education and Training (DTET),” said ET & T minister Sanjay Dasburma after a meeting with officials at the state secretariat here today.

To participate in the recruitment drive, interested students will have to register with the department. The registration is expected to start from next week.

The government will talk with about 300 companies to participate in the job fair and recruit the eligible candidates for their companies, informed the minister.

However, the belated move is unlikely to make much of a dent in the number of unemployed in the state whose number had crossed one million at last count.

According to information submitted in the Odisha State Assembly in March this year, 10,95,151 youth had registered themselves in employment exchanges of the State of whom 10,42,826 were educated.

Ironically, a sizable number of tribal youth (1,73,998) and dalits (scheduled caste) (1,94,077) had sought employment through employment exchanges.

During the past 14 years, as many as 42,222 persons have been recruited by different organizations and individuals. Of them, 35,849 youth have got jobs in the government sector.

The absence of any employment opportunities for local people in the MoU signed with various industries and companies has led to massive unemployment in the state, sources said.
