National Employment service(NES) came into the existence in July 1945 for the purpose of resettling demobilized Defence service personnel and discharged War Workers in civil life through the network of employment exchanges controlled by the then Directorate General of Resettlement and Employment (DGR&E) now known as Directorate General of Employment and Training (DGE&T). After Independence, the Directorate was also called upon to handle work relating to displaced persons from Pakistan. Subsequently, the scope of the Directorate was extended to cover, employment service to all categories of job-seekers in early 1948. In pursuance of the recommendations of the Training and Employment Service Committee ( Shiv Rao Committee set up in 1952) the day-to-day administrative control of the Employment Exchanges was transferred to the State Governments/Union Territory Administrations with effect from 1.11.1956.
Present National Employment Service functions within the conceptual framework of the ILO Convention No.88 on Organisation of Employment Service. Employment Services are provided free of cost. The primary objective is settlement of job-seekers either through regular jobs or through self-employment. For furtherance of the employability of the job-seekers, collection of employment market information, career counselling and vocational guidance are inbuilt in the system. The network of the Employment Service consists of about 966(excluding rural and similar) Employment Exchanges run by the State Governments. Private placement agencies are also operating on a limited scale primarily in the urban area to cater to the requirement of the specialised fields in the organised sector. Such agencies which help in achieving the above objective charge fees of varying amount both from the jobseekers and the employers.
