Amritsar – The Steady growth of Opportunities

Posted by NcrJobPortal.in  |  at   Monday, September 21, 2015

Amritsar is the focal point of spirituality and culture of Sikh religion in Punjab. It is also a famous tourist destination with a number of popular tourist landmarks. Though Amritsar has lost its sheen of being one of the major industrial areas after independence, the recent reforms and infrastructural improvements have again put it back on the track of development. Tourism has been and will always remain as the mainstream economic activity here. It is primarily due to the easy connectivity with major highways linking to the city from other important cities nearby. The presence of the international airport is another reason which connects to major cities in India and abroad. 

There are other key industries like industry, agriculture and trade upon which the economy of the city is dependent. The food industry is also growing popular here as Punjabi dhabas are renowned all over the country; with street foods and food villages growing it will add to the tourist attraction. Though, its proximity to the border is making infrastructural growth slow, the improved situation of security will help to find it spot once again in the business map. The clearance of the Amritsar-Delhi-Kolkata industrial corridor is expected to bring back the business sheen that was once before the partition. It is also expected that the real estate sector would become a major player in the economy after this.

Let us look at some of the important industries of Amritsar and which offers great career and job opportunities:

Tourism Industry
As already mentioned the tourism industry of the city is a flourishing one and adds to a large percentage of the economy. Some of the prominent landmarks, including the Golden Temple, attract a huge number of visitors every year and leads to a great revenue generation for the government. Thus, we can see that the opportunities in this industry are varied and numerous.

The hospitality industry which is closely associated with the tourism industry is also positively affected. A number of big hotels and resorts have grown up leading to the growth of the real estate sector too. These have all led to huge employment opportunities here.

Dairy industry
The dairy industry of Punjab is the biggest in India and Amritsar also plays a considerable part in it. Some of the major milk plants in neighbouring area of Amritsar offers livelihood to both the farmers and the workers in the plants. A variety of milk products are also produced in these milk plants and expertise in the field is required, which offer opportunities for those who are in this field of technology.

Textile Industry
Around 10-12% of the country’s cotton is from Punjab and this has led to a number of textile industries in the region. Some of the textile mills are also located in Amritsar, producing a variety of cotton textile products.

Power Industry
A 540 MW thermal plant is under implementation at Goindwal Sahib of Amritsar District and is expected to be open a number of employment openings in the future
Governemnt Jobs
Apart from the various industries, as Amritsar is the administrative centre of the district, there are various administrative offices here. So, there is a variety of positions offered by these government offices. There are a number of reputed government educational institutes that recruit positions for teaching and other administrative positions.
