In 2013, the placement was over 0.7 percent. In the year prior to that, however, the number is slightly better at over 0.9 percent.

The minister was fielding queries on the number of people provided employment and those who received call letters through employment exchanges in the last 3-4 years.

To another query, the minister said the labour ministry is implementing the National Career Service (NCS) in mission mode to transform the National Employment Service to provide employment related services.

It will help match job profiles of candidates with employer requirements, in career counselling and vocational guidance, among others.

The minister said 540 job fairs were organised under NCS during 2016-17.
