SACRED: A Govt. Portal for Re-Employment of ‘Senior Able Citizens’

In view of the report of a technical group (LASI) that “more than 50% senior citizens are found active”, Govt. has decided to develop an IT portal named ‘Senior Able Citizens for Re-Employment in Dignity (SACRED)’, to work as employment exchange for engagement seeker able senior citizens.

The portal will bring together the employment seeker senior citizens and employment providers by virtual matching of preferences, with an aim to devise ways to ensure Senior Citizens live healthy, happy, empowered, dignified and self-reliant life. Govt will provide Rs. 10 Crore for funding the platform development along with maintenance grant of Rs. 2 Cr per year for 5 years.

Senior Citizens who are active, feel alone at home in view of no engagement, although they are equally capable to perform for responsibilities of working. Therefore, considering the challenges of senior citizens, Govt. has decided to devise ways to build a society in which they can live healthy, happy, empowered, dignified and self-reliant life. Govt. has plans to involve the society at large for the initiative, specially the following stakeholders, to provide an opportunity for employment to the older persons:-

i) Private firms/ Corporates;

ii) Educational institutions;

iii) Government Sectors and local Bodies for consultancy services;

iv) The Non-Profit, Non-Governmental Associations, Societies/ Trusts, etc.; and

v) The Media and finally the Public at large.

Scope of the SCARED Portal

i) An IT portal to bring the employment seeker senior citizens and employment providers on one platform will be developed and maintained by an agency identified through a transparent process.

ii) An individual senior citizen will get oneself registered on the portal with his relevant education, past experience, skills and the areas of interest. The person will also select keywords regarding expected tasks, which will enable the job providers find them automatically. Details can be updated by the Senior citizens.

iii) Any job provider – individual/ firm/ company/ partnership/ Voluntary Organisations, etc. can also register on the portal. The job provider will specify the task involved and the number of senior citizens that are required to complete it.

iv) Voluntary Organizations will help the senior citizens in applying for these jobs. No user charges will be taken from any of the senior citizens by any Voluntary Organizations. Therefore, the Employment Portal will serve not only the senior citizens seeking employment, but also the employers, the SHGs, the senior citizens gaining skills, and other agencies/ individuals.

v) The Employment Exchange Portal will not be a guarantee for getting a job/ employment or selling of the products of the SHGs, or for any other activity. It will act as an interactive platform where stakeholders meet each other virtually and decide on the course of action with mutual respect, consent and understanding.

vi) Any individual/ firm/ company/ agency will seek the services of the senior citizens in respect of those tasks where experience can naturally outweigh hiring new personnel and providing them training, etc. Example can be short term employment, contract for a project, teaching, counselling jobs. The Employer and the employee may extend their partnership beyond the short term, too, on mutual consent and respect basis.
