Purpose of National Employment Policy (NEP)


The National Employment Policy seeks to create a sector-wise strategy to improve the potential of job creation by pulling investments towards employment-intensive sectors, attracting new industries by creating an enabling environment, and by policy interventions. It will be created based on data from five all-India labor surveys and the E-Shram portal for facilitating evidence-based policymaking to generate employment. Following the consultations, it will be sent for cabinet approval.

The central government has planned to set up a committee for National Employment Policy (NEP), which seeks to create a roadmap for improving job opportunities in India. It will be a high-powered committee, of which views and recommendations will be taken.
