The Uttar Pradesh government today signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with four industry chambers for collectively providing employment to more than 1.1 million migrant labourers, who have returned to the state following covid-19 lockdown.

The MoUs have been signed with Indian Industries Association (IIA), FICCI, Laghu Udyog Bharati (LUB) and National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO).

The government will share the migrants’ database with the industry associations, so that they could be absorbed in different industrial, real estate and manufacturing units depending upon their vocational skills and experience, especially micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME).
