Recruitment of 10 lakh people will be done by the Government of India in a mission mode in the next 1.5 years, announced the Prime Minister’s Office on Tuesday.

Prime Minister’s Office on Tuesday said, “PM Narendra Modi reviewed the status of Human Resources in all departments and ministries and instructed that recruitment of 10 lakh people be done by the Indian government in mission mode in next 1.5 years.”

With this, the Centre has set a deadline for filling up 10 lakh vacancies by December 2023 for which all the recruitments of possible candidates shall take place within 18 months.

Several Cabinet Ministers hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s directive to recruit 10 lakh people in a mission mode in the next 1.5 years. 

Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Anurag Singh Thakur took to Twitter and wrote, “PM Narendra Modi has over the years made government more accountable and governance more people-centric, ensuring last-mile delivery. Enhancing the strength of the Government to meet the targets and opportunities towards the vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat is another major step.”

Union Cabinet Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Z Irani took to Twitter and wrote, “10 lakh recruitments in 1.5 years, this is a major step towards extending employment opportunities to our youth & strengthening Government establishments with young energy to achieve the goals envisioned for a New India.
