Big news for people who are seeking Central Government jobs! One of the core poll promises i.e. employment made by PM Narendra Modi is all set to be done. In a shift from its mantra of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’, government is going to recruit 2.2 lakh central employees over a period of 2 years.
The biggest increase of 70,000 is expected to take place in the Revenue Department which comprises Income Tax, Custom & Excise. As the recruitment in this department has been frozen for many years, results in more than 6 lakh vacant posts. Government mostly tries to increase the number in Railway Department as the reports said that it has not added a single worker in last 3 years. Cabinet Secretariat is a very small department thus 301 people will be employed. The Personnel Ministry had added 1800 jobs in last 2 years, the Urban Development Ministry had added 6000, Mines Ministry 4,399 & Department of Space 1,000. The Information & Broadcast Ministry had added 2,200 employees in last 2 years. The staff count is set to increase to 35.23 lakh by March 1, 2017 against 33.05 lakh employees in March 1, 2015.
Modi always believes in maximum governance. Government wants to fill the vacancies as fast as possible. It seems like “Achhe din aane wale hain” for all those people striving to get placed in the Government jobs.
