The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has introduced the 'AICTE Placement Portal' to address the employment needs of rural and tribal students.

This initiative aims to provide equal job opportunities for students in colleges situated in remote areas, preventing the migration of youth to larger cities. The portal focuses on districts in Andaman Nicobar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Telangana, and more, streamlining the recruitment process for local job seekers.

TG Sitharam, Chairman of AICTE, emphasizes the limited job opportunities, connectivity, and awareness in rural and tribal regions. The user-friendly design of the portal takes into account the location and skills of underprivileged students, prioritizing their placement.

Rajive Kumar, Member Secretary of AICTE, highlights the portal's role in connecting students with hiring companies, providing them with industry insights, and fostering skill development.

To ensure authenticity, the AICTE placement portal verifies every registered entity, including hiring companies. Companies are required to submit essential details, such as an incorporation certificate and representative contact information, which are verified by the AICTE admin team.

Only after approval from the AICTE team, a company can post job requirements on the portal.

Additionally, recruiting companies must conduct credibility checks on candidates hired through the portal.

The placement portal serves as a crucial link connecting rural and tribal talent with multinational companies. Its user-friendly design accommodates low bandwidth networks and various digital devices, ensuring accessibility for all users. AICTE provides a helpline for technical support, enhancing the platform's usability.

AICTE plans to raise awareness about the portal through webinars and awareness programs, targeting rural and tribal areas across the country. Same way, Krishi Jagran’s MFOI will be rewarding farmers.

Sitharam notes a positive response from academia and industry, with students from all regions registering on the portal.

Multinational companies like Salesforce, ServiceNow, IDS Inc Ltd, Phytech, and Medini, along with 4,000 other companies from diverse industries, have already joined the portal.

While the portal has recently launched, specific data regarding its impact on different regions/states is not yet available. Nevertheless, the initiative signifies a step toward empowering students in remote areas, promoting inclusivity, and bridging the gap between rural talent and job opportunities.
