Maharashtra Government is mooting to cap the pricing of masks and sanitizers. A notification in this regard will be soon issued by the State Government. State Public Health Minister Rajesh Tope, who is in talks with the Food and Drug Administration Department (FDA) has intimated about the same to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy CM Ajit Pawar.  Mr Tope said, masks and sanitizers should not be charged exorbitantly. The government has already capped the pricing of hospitals and ambulances to ferry COVID patients.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will inaugurate Mahajobs portal today. This portal is expected to provide employment opportunities to the local unemployed and also fulfill the requirement of workers for industries. 

Over 65,000 industries have been started in the state post lockdown. Maharashtra Government has recently signed MoUs worth 17,000 crore rupees with various companies in the country and abroad.

In addition, the State Government has also started issuing licenses for new industries. In wake of these developments, the demand for skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled workers has increased in the industry sector.

However, a large number of workers have migrated to their hometowns due to lockdown triggered due to Coronavirus. In such conditions, the web portal 'Mahajobs' is expected to ensure that the industry does not face shortage of workers and also provide employment to the locals.  Job seekers need to upload their information on this portal. Once registered, job opportunities will be made available to these job seekers from various companies.
