Development of West Bengal State Mission for Employment Portal (WBSMEP)

Year - 2015

Client - Department of Youth Services, Government of West Bengal

Project Brief

The State Government has set up the West Bengal State Mission for Employment Portal (WBSMEP) and the Department of Youth Services is the nodal agency for coordinating the various employment oriented schemes being implemented by various other departments. The nodal agency intends to create a web portal which will be accessed by the unemployed youth, training skills imparting organisations, participating departments to enable a better coordination of the schemes.

The main objective of the Department of Youth Services, Goverment of West Bengal, is to co-ordinate various employment generation schemes in the  Government. In order to get ready with the resources, many schemes are being undertaken by various departments. To train, track and manage the trained human resources, the department wants to have a common platform where the unemployed youth including the unemployed youth training centres will come under the same roof for getting end-to-end services. This portal will be accessed by the unemployed youth, training skills imparting organisations, participating departments by using their login information. Authorised officials can monitor and view all types of MIS reports.
