How to get a job in Kerala jobs
Keralites are among the highest paying in India.
While many in the country are still struggling to find work, there is an open-ended supply of job opportunities, according to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
The RBI’s latest job census, for which more than 20,000 jobs are available in Kerala, revealed that almost 40 per cent of the state’s population has a job, while in the rest of the country, only 7.6 per cent did.
The figures, compiled by the RBI, show that nearly one in three job seekers in Kerala were unemployed and nearly two in three were jobless for more than a month.
In Kerala, the jobless rate is 9.5 per cent.
Job vacancies were also high, with the average vacancy rate of 4.3 per cent, with only 6.3 lakh vacancies for vacancies.
There were 1.2 lakh job vacancies for positions requiring a PhD degree, while for positions in the private sector, there were more than 14 lakh.
According to the RBI report, there are currently 5.6 lakh vacancies in various fields, including IT and IT-related fields.
“There are around 13.4 lakh jobs in the state.
There are only around 1.6 million jobs in these fields,” Ramesh Nangla, managing director of the Centre for Applied Research in Kerala (CARICOM), told The Hindu.
The state is among the most backward in India, with just 2.5 million jobs, he added.
The Reserve Bank, however, does not believe that the shortage of jobs is the fault of the people.
“We are in the process of identifying all the jobs.
The jobs are there in the system and there is no need to take these people off the rolls,” Nanglia said.
“This is not due to lack of demand but because the supply is very limited and the demand is low,” he added, referring to the fact that the state is also facing a shortage of construction work.
