The ISRO Recruitment Yuvika 2020 Programme is aimed towards recruiting young minds and imparting knowledge to them about the latest space technology, applications as well as space science. ISRO will reportedly be choosing students from each of the state and the union territories. These recruits will not only be recruited and trained by ISRO scientists but they will also be given access to the agency's laboratories. However, ISRO has also released a caution notice on its official website to alert the job aspirants of some fraudulent offers of appointment for the post of 'Trainee' or a 'Scientist' which is being given from behalf of the universities. The notice asked the job aspirants to be careful of these fake offers and stated that the requirements will only be notified from the official website of ISRO.
