VICCO Director Sanjeev Pendharkar in an interaction with Cabinet Minister for Industries in Maha Vikas Aghadi Subhash Desai during a webinar speaks about Mahajob Portal and more.
Sanjeev Pendharkar writes
I am Mr. Sanjeev Pendharkar, Director in Vicco Laboratories have come across one of the most devoted, humble and efficient Industries Ministers, Honourable Shri. Subhash Desai. Our experience with him not only states that he is such a industries minister, who really want industries to grow and listen to the problems faced by the industries and hence, he called me for webinar to have live interaction with him not once or twice, but four times during the Corona crisis !!!
For the Mahajob Industrial Portal designed by him and inaugurated at the hands of Honourable Chief Minister Shri. Uddhav Thakare, I gave him suggestion to prepare mobile app also simultaneously for Mahajob portal. He himself along with the Chief Minister Shri. Uddhav Thakare immediately appreciated the suggestion and launched the app which can be easily utilized by the smartphone users.
The aforesaid app is launched so that industries can put or mention their requirements for online portal about their skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labour wants and needs. This is particularly important since many industries are without workers as workers who were working were mainly from Orissa, U.P. and Bihar, returned to their native places, as they lost jobs during Corona crisis !!
Maharashtra Industries Minister Honourable Shri. Subhash Desai put the efforts and six lakhs people employed in various sectors have resumed work amid easing of restrictions in the lockdown in place for the novel Corona virus outbreak.
Around six lakhs people in these 25 firms have got back to work. In Western Maharashtra alone 9,147 industries have been given permission to restart work. Off these, a total of 5,774 have already resumed operations.
We salute the efforts of Mr. Subhash Desai !!! The Minister said, the State Government will provide Maha permits for big ticket industrial projects, covering all kinds of permissions that are needed to set up a plant. It will save the time wasted in obtaining various permits needed to start a factory.
Many companies are backing out from China after Corona virus outbreak and the most vigilant Minister is closely watching the development. He promised Mega Permits, will be granted after the company submits concrete proposal while the period for obtaining other subsequent permissions will be increased and they can be obtained after the unit starts.
He has also planned and form employment bureau which will have database of skilled and semi-skilled professionals whom companies can contact for recruitment. This will save the companys hiring cost and offer job opportunities to the youth in the state. Locals are thus given priority and opportunity to work those who are willing to work.
Mr. Desai is of the opinion that Internal Data crunching in his department has revealed that in big ticket projects the average of Rs.One Crore investment creates only one job, while in small scale industries Rs.One Lac needs to be invested to create one job.
The amount of investment shrinks further to Rs.25,000/- in micro scale industries for creation of one job.
We again salute the hard work, dedication and vision of Mr. Subhash Desai and pray to the Lord to give him a long healthy life in the days to come.

Nagpur: Married man accused of girlfriend’s rape commits suicide on Facebook live
A 38-year-old married man named Manish alias Raj Yadav, on Sunday, committed suicide during a Facebook live-stream after allegedly being accused of rape by his girlfriend and her family in Nagpur.
During the live stream, Manish, who was married and a father to three children, stated that his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kajal, along with her family members demanded a sum of five lakh rupees and threatened to press charges of rape if he failed to do so.
On September 6, the situation became grave as the woman’s family accused him of eloping after Kajal went missing from her residence.
The deceased refused the claims of having any sexual relationship with the woman and identified her, her family, and a photo studio operator responsible for his condition. He, then, jumped into the river.
After the live video surfaced online, Kalamna Police launched a search operation and recovered the deceased’s body from the river. Four people have been detained in the case for questioning. Further investigation is underway.
