The government arranges job fairs every year to create jobs by MSME in GIDC Estates and other agencies at local level.

He said that Gujarat is Number One State providing jobs for the last 15 years, alone creating 74,000 jobs through employment exchanges, including 72,000 government jobs last year, and 17,000 this year. The state’s Garment and Apparel Policy ensures job for women on a payroll of Rs.4,000. The state’s Education Policy is reoriented to make it job-oriented. He gave a detailed account of Raksha Shakti and Petroleum Universities.
