While the total number of vacancies near Upanal is less than 20. According to statistics, about 2.5 thousand unemployed are in the line for one post.
A large number of expatriates working in other states have returned after the Corona cases increased. The state government had announced to provide employment to all the migrants some time back. The government said that an effort will be made to provide employment to the migrants through Upanal.
After this, a large number of migrants have registered for employment. So far, more than 50 thousand migrants have applied for employment in Upanal alone. Apart from this, many people registered in the employment office.
Whereas the vacancy near the Upanal relative to it is extremely low. If we look at the total number of posts and registration in Upanal, the magnitude of the situation can be gauged.

Government’s problem may increase:
The state government has announced to provide employment to the migrants, but now increasing numbers can increase the government’s troubles in future. Considering the number of recruitments that Upanal has to offer, it seems dishonest to accommodate all the migrants. It can be very difficult for the state government to provide employment only through the Upanal.
These days most of the recruitments are taking place in the Health Department itself. Due to Kovid-19, personnel are being kept in hospitals. Although most of these are temporary jobs. Health Department has 10 to 15 recruitments. At the same time, the number of vacancies in other departments is just between five and 10. In this way only 20 to 25 posts are available for recruitment at Upanal.
