HAVE you ever felt the need for do­mes­tic helps and your search to find the suit­able guy at af­ford­able cost al­ways proved fu­tile? To meet this grow­ing de­mand for the city dwellers where do­mes­tic ser­vice providers (skilled ar­ti­sans) have be­come a rar­ity as many of them mi­grated to big­ger cities where they can make more money, the Tamil Nadu Ur­ban Liveli­hood Mis­sion has launched a first-of-its-kind City Liveli­hood Cen­tre here on a pi­lot ba­sis in the state which was in­au­gu­rated by Col­lec­tor S A Ra­man on Fri­day.

Ac­cord­ing to A R Si­vara­man, project di­rec­tor of the Vel­lore unit of the Tamil Nadu Cor­po­ra­tion for De­vel­op­ment of Women, the aim of the cen­tre is to pro­vide a plat­form for the ur­ban skilled trader to mar­ket their ser­vices while act­ing as one-stop shop for those seek­ing ser­vices.

In ad­di­tion, it will fa­cil­i­tate nec­es­sary guid­ance, coun­sel­ing and tech­ni­cal sup­port to them. The cen­tre will ex­tend as many as 36 types of ser­vices for do­mes­tic re­quire­ment in the city. Peo­ple can call the cen­ter at 0416-2212551 and ask for a par­tic­u­lar ser­vice and the same would be ful­filled by a group of ar­ti­sans who have al­ready regis­tered with the cen­tre.
