Raipur: Chhattisgarh Government, with an attempt to employ the unemployed engineers and diploma holders, has planned to implement an E-category registration system in all the departments functioning under the state government; the system will ensure that the construction work tenders across the districts will be given only to the local unemployed engineers and diploma holders.

The E-category registration system is to be brought about in all the construction departments, boards, and bodies of the state government of Chhattisgarh. Directions have been issued in this regard, said Pradeep Sharma, the advisor to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel.

“The idea is to provide work to local block-level contractors, who will provide employment to diploma holders and engineers in projects of their area”, stated Sharma,

He further added – “We have decided that the contractors will have to employ a diploma engineer in the projects worth Rs. 20 lakh and graduate engineers in projects costing up to one crore or more. A provision has been made to pay 15,000/- per month to the diploma engineers and 25,000/- per month to the graduate engineers. The government believes that through this we can give work to a large number of unemployed engineers”.
