New Delhi: Delhi government will organise a Rozgar Mela and establish 20 new employment centres to provide career counselling to the youth, according to an official statement. Labour and Employment Minister Raaj Kumar Anand held a meeting with the vice-chancellor of the Labour Department and the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) to discuss the organisation of the employment fair or 'Rozgar Mela'.

The cabinet minister directed the officials of the concerned department and the university to take appropriate steps in this direction.
