According to the district officials, there are about 4,702 applicants who have registered on the portal so far. These include 3,025 people from rural areas and 1,677 people from urban areas of Dehradun district.
The officials stated that an applicant registers himself or herself under the category of skilled or unskilled professional which helps the district administration to provide them the right opportunities. From the applicants of rural and urban areas of the district, there are about 3,435 applicants who have registered in the portal under skilled professionals and around 1,266 applicants who have registered under unskilled professionals in the last three and a half months, as informed by the officials. According to them, the data regarding the applicants has been sent recently to several departments concerned including Uttarakhand Skill Development Mission (USDM) and the work is currently under process in these departments. Soon, the training will be provided to the selected applicants on the basis of their application in the HOPE portal, as per the official sources. It is pertinent to mention here that most of the opportunities through the portal are being provided under Mukhyamantri Swarozgar Yojana (MSY) to provide self-employment opportunities to the youth and natives who returned due to Covid-19 pandemic.
However, those who want employment opportunities in the district like jobs, self-employment opportunities or skilled and unskilled training as per their capability are welcome to register on the portal too.
The HOPE portal helps applicants to connect with MSY by collecting a database of skilled and unskilled people of the district so that the administration can facilitate employment opportunities for them.
