He said the government would on August 27 convene a meeting with various companies and organisations such as Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Confederation of Indian Industries and the Associated Chambers of Commerce of India to discuss various aspects of the summit.

"After the success of the first job summit, we are planning to organise the second job summit. It will be an open platform where all people can come and apply for jobs," Rai said at a press conference at the Delhi Secretariat.

The first summit was only for those who had registered in advance but the second one will be thrown open to everyone.

Earlier this month, during the 11-day summit, a total of 2,108 people, including 300 disabled, were selected by 38 companies.

The jobs offered included security guards, attendants, helpers, housekeeping, tele-callers, financial planning advisers, drivers, peons and data entry operators.
