The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) has launched an AI-based Aatmanirbhar Skilled Employee Employer Mapping’ (ASEEM) portal to help skilled people find sustainable livelihood opportunities. It said that the AI-based platform aims to strengthen their career pathways by getting people with industry-relevant skills and explore emerging job opportunities, especially in the post COVID era.

Mahendra Nath Pandey, minister of skill development and entrepreneurship said, “The ASEEM portal has been envisioned to give a huge impetus to our persistent efforts to bridge the demand-supply gap for skilled workforce across sectors, bringing limitless and infinite opportunities for the nation’s youth. The initiative aims to accelerate India’s journey towards recovery by mapping skilled workforce and connecting them with relevant livelihood opportunities in their local communities, especially in the post COVID era. “

Real-time data analytics

He added, “With the increasing use of technology and e-management systems which assist in bringing in processes and intelligent tools to drive demand-driven and outcome-based skill development programs, this platform will ensure we bring in close convergence and coordination across various schemes and programs operating in the skill ecosystem. This will also ensure that we monitor any sort of duplication of data and further re-engineer the vocational training landscape in the country ensuring a skilling, up-skilling and re-skilling in a more organised setup.”

It will provide employers a platform to assess the availability of skilled workforce and formulate their hiring plans. ASEEM will also be available as an app and is developed and managed by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) in collaboration with Bengaluru-based company Betterplace. It will help in providing real-time data analytics to NSDC and its Sector Skill Councils about the demand and supply patterns.

Three IT-based interfaces

This will include industry requirements, skill gap analysis, demand per district/ state/cluster, key workforce suppliers, key consumers​, migration patterns​ and multiple potential career prospects for candidates. The platform has three IT-based interfaces-Employer Portal, Dashboard, and Candidate Application.

AM Naik, chairman, NSDC said, “Migrant labour has been severely impacted by the socio-economic fallout of the COVID pandemic. In the current context, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has taken up the responsibility of mapping the dispersed migrant population around the country and providing them the means to re-build their livelihood by matching their skill-sets to available employment opportunities. The launch of ASEEM is the first step on that journey.”
