The other suggestions made by the Conference including improvement of Employment Market Information and Vocational Guidance Programme, establishment of vocational rehabilitation centres for physically handicapped persons and strengthening of the Employment Services at various levels.

Mr Trivedi mentioned about the proposal of the North Eastern Council for placing a couple of officers of the rank of Additional and Jt. Director in order to conduct the programme of collection of information and data on employment in the region and to make necessary analysis of the same for assessing the real nature of employment problem. Stressing the need for arrangement of proper training for the officers in the Employment Exchange Directorates, Mr Trivedi also suggested that certain percentage of posts in the State Sectors should be created as apprentice.
