PSEB Launches Mechanism for Establishment of e-Rozgar Centers in year 2024

The Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB) is making it easier to create e-Rozgar Centers in Pakistan. These centers want to help freelancers and new businesses in the country. The Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB) has streamlined the mechanism for the establishment of e-Rozgar Centers to bolster the freelance ecosystem in Pakistan.

These centers aim to provide essential support and resources to freelancers and startups across the nation.

According to PSEB, the process for setting up these centers will commence with the issuance of Expression of Interest (EoI) notices, to be disseminated through local newspapers, PPRA channels, PSEB’s official platforms, and social media networks.

People and companies who are interested will need to give details about their project, goals, and how they will be evaluated. An independent committee will then pick suitable buildings for the e-Rozgar Centers.

The owners of these selected buildings can apply for interest-free loans from PSEB. These loans, up to Rs. 10 million, can be repaid in two years. This helps them set up the centers and start making money before repaying the loan.

During this period, PSEB will cover the interest, alleviating immediate financial burdens and fostering business growth. Additionally, developers will benefit from free training through Digi Skill and Ignite’s Learning Management System (LMS), enabling them to enhance their skills and capabilities.

Furthermore, PSEB will extend free marketing support to e-Rozgar Centers, facilitating their visibility and outreach. Additionally, trainers’ expenses will be covered by PSEB at a rate of Rs. 20,000 per month per center, ensuring the provision of quality training and support services.

This transformative initiative, spearheaded by the Ministry of Information Technology and PSEB, aims to establish 10,000 e-Rozgar Centers across Pakistan, serving as dedicated workspaces for freelancers and startups. Operated on a public-private partnership model, these centers seek to address financial barriers through interest-free loans and foster a thriving digital entrepreneurial ecosystem nationwide.

Dr. Umar Saif, the Minister for IT and Telecom, said that e-Rozgar Centers will play a crucial role in changing Pakistan’s digital landscape. He believes these centers will provide affordable workspaces for millions of freelancers, helping the country’s economy grow.
