Imphal: The numbers of literate job seekers in the state registered in the state employment exchange has reached 6,87,533. However the actual number may vary by around two lakhs since the state Employment Directorate is not checking multiple registrations and not updating data of those who have got jobs.

According to a source from the directorate, the total literate job seekers in the state registered up to February 2011 is 6,87,533 out of which 1,90,223 are females and 4,97,315 are males.

Imphal West alone has a total figure of 2,22,303.The figures of job seekers in other districts are 1,01,924 in Imphal East, 1,05,072 in Thoubal, 63,354 in Bishnupur, 61,956 in Churachandpur, 27,397 in Ukhrul, 51,011 in Senapati, 21,036 in Tamenglong and 25,350 in Chandel.

Out of these 2,387 are Physically handicapped persons while 5,748 are bracketed as 'UI and GB' .

Meanwhile many job seekers are found to have registered in all the nine districts.

Moreover many persons have multiple registrations in case of lost and non renewal of registration card, according to a highly reliable source.

After the government relaxed the recruitment ban enforced in 1997 many job seekers have got jobs in either contract or permanent posts through the directorates of many government departments.

Home Department, Health Department, Social Welfare Department, State Institute of Rural Development, Manipur Police Housing Corporation, Directorate of Industries, Board of Secondary Education Manipur, Directorate of Economics and Statistics, IG Prison, District Session Judge, MPSC, JNIMS and Relief and Disaster Management are some departments who have recruited many job seekers in the past decade through their directorates, the source said.

It is mandatory to delete the record of those who have got jobs.

But many departments do not send the employment directorate the list of job seekers who have got jobs in their departments.

The negligence from the part of various departments has become the prime cause for not deleting such records which has resulted in causing a high difference between the actual figure and the recorded figure.

While employment notifications in valley districts are issued through the employment exchanges, many government offices in the hill districts are not informing their concerned exchanges in any employment notifications and recruitments.

Such negligence and irresponsible manner of the various departments and government offices are the main cause of the huge variation in the figures, the source maintained.
