HP Govt launched website and Mobile app Mera Hunar for skilled, semi-skilled persons to apply for various jobs online

Date: 10 Mar 2017
Chief Minister Shri Virbhadra Singh launched Mobile app and website “Mera Hunar HP” on 8th of March. Mera Hunar is a web based platform where the skilled, semi-skilled persons can apply online for various jobs like Plumber, Carpenter, mechanic, security guards, drivers, tourists guides, etc . The platform is available both in English and Hindi.


As per govt, this platform will directly connect the prospective employers with the job seekers as the application will contain the address and the phone numbers of those looking for jobs and other details as well. This will benefit those looking for daily jobs within their area.

The Chief Minister appreciated the efforts of Mera Hunar team and thanked CEO, Shri Vinay Dalal for the voluntary cause for the job seekers. This would further supplement the Skill development scheme of the state government and would be of great help to those passing out fresh from Industrial Training Institutes.

IT Advisor, Himachal Pradesh, Shri Gokul Butail was the brain behind the development of the application. He said that this application was the first of its kind in the country.

"This will not only create self-employment but also create a huge database of all the job seekers skilled in different trades", Butail said. He appealed to the people of the state to make full use of the application.

In recent time the unemployment has increased by a large number in the state. According to reports 34% of total registration in employment exchanges in the state are unemployed. The real figures can be worse.

This platform will surely provide a way for employers to connect with job-seekers, but how will the new jobs will be created in the state, remains a mystery. Will it actually help unemployed youths to find jobs or will it be only a tool to lure youths in the upcoming elections, only time will tell.
Though it's only the second day, but user had a mixed reaction on this. Few people appreciated the effort while other are unhappy for the types of jobs listed.
' Its Such a crap. The jobs are like painter, driver, helper. I thought there would be some better technical jobs also. This app is for 8th or 10th pass people', said one user.

The App can be downloaded from google play or Apple Store. The website url is www.hpmerahunar.com
