MoU between DoP & Min. of Labour & Employment - POs as Employment Registration Centres
The concept of developing a tie-up between DoP and Ministry of
Labour and Employment (MoLE) to leverage rural Post Offices as an Employment
Registration Centre has been initiated by DoP as a follow up to the
recommendations of the Group of Secretaries, appointed by the Hon’ble Prime
Minister to explore innovative ideas for transformative change in various areas

DoP and Ministry of Labour and Employment (MoLE) to leverage Post Offices as
Employment Registration Centres. The project has been scheduled to be launched
on 12-02-2017 at Hyderabad by the Hon’ble Minister for Labour and Employment.
