25,300 jobs in a day! Mumbai creates Guinness record

Thursday October 13, 2011 10:49:05 PM, IANS

Mumbai: City-based NGO Swabhiman Sanghatana Thursday said it has created a new Guinness World Record by giving jobs to 25,300 unemployed youths, including physically challenged.

The appointment letters were issued Wednesday from various private and cooperative banks, call centres, private companies, trading and business organisations, malls and shopping plazas, depending on the qualifications of the applicants.

The effort was recognised by Guinness World Records director Rob Molroy, who awarded the coveted certificate to Swabhiman Sanghatana head Nitesh Rane as thousands of youths cheered.

"More than any record, the bigger pleasure was to see the faces of so many unemployed youths lit up as they were given their appointment letters which would help them support their families," Rane said.

Shortly after the Guinness recognition, Maharashtra Industry Minister Narayan Rane rushed to the venue to felicitate Nitesh, who also happens to be his son.

A Sanghatana office-bearer said that the preparations for the NGO's job fair started several weeks ago.

"This included tapping various organisations for different types of jobs they could offer to the youths, and then contacting several thousand unemployed youngsters and asking them to submit applications for the same," the official told IANS.

Several youths who secured jobs of their choice were seen leaving the venue with an expression of triumph and happiness on their faces.

The starting salary for the jobs offered is around Rs.75,000 per annum and above, depending on the merits and qualifications of the individual, Sanghatana officials said.
