Popular Indian job sites such as Naukri.com and Monster.com could soon have to fight it out in a more crowded space. The Indian government is planning to launch a comprehensive jobs site that would list and feature skilled manpower requirements of industry and the available skilled manpower in the country.

The constraints of dissemination of information to both employers and job seekers would be overcome by the introduction of this e-governance project, the federal government said.

This is the first such initiative from the Indian federal government, which is used to functioning through employment exchanges, which although fully computerized, functions manually.
