Apna, a start-up app that helps India’s blue-collar workers find jobs, recorded 12 million openings in the September-November quarter, saying the employment demand shows the economy is lifting up after crashing in the pandemic.

Apna, which became India’s 27th unicorn this year with a valuation of more than $1 billion, said it enabled more than 37 million interviews during the festival season that quarter, the company said.

It registered 5 million new users on its app from September-first week to November.

“The surge in new jobs, users, and interviews we witnessed during the festive season affirms India is back on the road to recovery after a difficult year,” said Manas Singh, a chief business officer of Apna. (business-standard)
