The government has proposed a tripartite committee to examine issues relating to private placement agencies in the wake of rising complaints of some of them misleading job aspirants and resorting to irregularities. In its reply to a Parliamentary Panel, Labour and Employment Ministry has said that while the issue is being debated with "severity" at various levels, it has proposed the tripartite committee after taking note of such discussions.
"The committee will examine the whole issue relating to private placement agencies and how to regulate and control their illegitimate activities," the Ministry said. The panel had sought to impress upon the government to review guidelines issued way back in October, 2003, on regulating private placement to ensure proper implementation so that "unwitting unemployed youth are not exploited". The guidelines were issued to the states by Director General of Employment and Training on October 30, 2003, and thereafter left to the states to frame guidelines for monitoring the agencies, it observed. It had strongly recommended that that the "unscrupulous" agencies must be regulated and checked lamenting that some of such agencies mislead the unemployed youths, collect money from them and vanish into thin air. In a separate reply, the Ministry also informed the panel that it has communicated to all states the recommendation of a parliamentary panel for payment of unemployment allowances to youths registered with employment exchanges. "The desire of the standing committee of paying unemployment allowances to registered unemployed youth with employment exchanges have been communicated to all states," the ministry informed the committee, the report of which was tabled in Parliament last week. The action taken by the Labour and Employment Ministry came in the wake of the suggestions of the panel that while some states such as Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Punjab and Kerala are paying unemployment allowances, others should follow suit. The panel had suggested that payment of unemployment allowances, though small, could encourage unemployed youths to come forward and register themselves with employment exchanges. This would also help the states to correctly analyse the employment situation and find ways and means for providing employment.
