Earlier in June, the prime minister 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.
“As per the directions of the Prime Minister, all Ministries and Departments are working towards filling up existing vacancies against sanctioned posts in Mission Mode,” the statement said. The new recruits from across the country will join 38 Ministries/Departments of the Government of India.
The appointed individuals will join the government at various levels viz Group – A, Group – B (Gazetted), Group – B (Non-Gazetted) and Group – C. The posts on which appointments are being made include Central Armed Force Personnel, Sub Inspector, Constable, LDC, Steno, PA, Income Tax Inspectors, MTS, among others.
The recruitments are being done in mission mode by Ministries and Departments either by themselves or through recruiting agencies such as UPSC, SSC, and Railway Recruitment Board.
“For expeditious recruitment, selection processes have been simplified and made tech-enabled,” the statement concluded.
Fifty Union ministers will be handing over appointment letters to nearly 20,000 people at different locations across the country under the recruitment drive, news agency PTI has reported citing officials.
