Employment Fairs show commitment to youth of India: PM Modi
Underlining the tedious process of recruitment which existed earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that now the process has been simplified by making it online where a provision for self-attestation of documents has also been introduced.
PM Modi addressed the National Rozgar Mela via video conferencing and distributed about 71,000 appointment letters to newly inducted recruits in various Government departments and organisations. Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister conveyed his best wishes to all the inducted recruits and their families.
He recalled recent Rozgar Melas in states such as Gujarat and the upcoming Mela in Assam. He said these Melas at the centre and BJP-ruled states, show the government's commitment towards the youth.
"In the last nine years, the government has prioritized the recruitment process by making it faster, transparent and unbiased. The tedious process of recruitment which existed earlier starting from acquiring the application form to submitting it via post has now been simplified by making it online where a provision for self-attestation of documents has also been introduced," he said.
Touching upon medical education in the country, the Prime Minister stated that only 7 AIIMS were built in the country in 7 decades whereas in the last 9 years, the government has developed 15 new AIIMS. He also added that the number of medical colleges in the country has increased from 400 to 700 where the number of MBBS and MD seats increased from around 80,000 to more than 1 lakh 70 thousand.
Concluding the address, the Prime Minister directed to the new recruits and underlined their role in this Mahayagya of development going on in the country where the resolutions of a developed India have to be realized in the next 25 years.
The Prime Minister urged the recruits to make full use of this opportunity and highlighted the government's emphasis on the skill development of its employees through the iGoT Karmayogi module, an online learning platform.
