PM’s Rozgar Mela: 10 Lakh People To Be Hired On Mission Mode On Oct 22
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a mega ‘Rozgar Mela’ of job fest, a drive to recruit 10 lakh people, on October 22 via video conference and appointment letters will be given to 75,000 candidates during the ceremony, the PM’s Office said on Thursday.
This will be a significant step forward towards fulfilling the continuous commitment of the prime minister to providing job opportunities for the youth and ensuring the welfare of citizens, the office said.
In June this year, PM Modi had asked various government departments and ministries to undertake the recruitment of 10 lakh people on a “mission mode” in the next year and a half. According to Thursday’s statement, the direction from PM Modi came following a review of the status of human resources in all government departments and ministries, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said.
The new recruits, selected from across the country, will join 38 ministries or departments of the Government of India. The appointees will join the government at various levels in Group A and B (Gazetted), Group B (Non-Gazetted) and Group C.
The posts on which appointments are being made include the central armed force personnel, sub-inspectors, constables, LDC, steno, PA, income tax inspectors and MTS among others, it read.
These recruitments are being done by ministries and departments either by themselves or through recruiting agencies such as UPSC, SSC and the Railway Recruitment Board. For expeditious recruitment, selection processes have been simplified and made tech-enabled, the PM’s Office said.
