Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, under the Rozgar Mela, released 71,000 appointment letters to newly inducted recruits via video conferencing. Union Minister of State of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and Tourism, Shri. Shripad Naik handed over appointment letters to the recruits in Goa at a function organized by Goa Customs Commissionerate at Institute Menezes Braganza Panjim today.
Addressing the gathering virtually, Prime Minister remarked that this is the first Rozgar Mela of 2023 which brings the precious gift of employment into the government fold for the 71,000 families. The Prime Minister congratulated the new appointees and noted that these employment opportunities will infuse a new ray of hope not just in the appointees but also among crores of families. The Prime Minister informed that lakhs of new families will get appointed to Government jobs in the days to come as Rozgar Melas are being organised regularly in NDA-ruled States and Union Territories. He informed me that the Assam Government organised a Rozgar Mela only yesterday and states like Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Uttarakhand are going to organise it very soon. The Prime Minister said that “regular Rozgar Melas have become a mark of this government. They show that whatever resolution is taken by this government is realised”.
The Prime Minister said that the transparency and speed of this recruitment process today characterise every aspect of the function of the government today. Shri Modi recalled the time when even routine promotions were mired in delay and disputes. This government has addressed such issues and ensured a transparent process. “Transparent recruitment and promotion generate trust among the youth”, he said.
The Prime Minister remarked that a similar mantra of ‘citizen is always right’ should be implemented in administration. “This gives rise to the feeling of service attitude and also strengthens it”, the Prime Minister added as he noted that when one gets appointed in the government fold, it is referred to as government service and not a job. He also highlighted the joy that can be experienced by serving the 140 crore Indian citizens and said that it has a positive impact on the people.
Shri Modi asserted “In rapidly changing India, opportunities for employment and self-employment are continuously improving. Fast growth leads to a massive expansion of self-employment opportunities. Today’s India is witnessing this.”
The Prime Minister informed that lakhs of employment opportunities have been created in the last eight years with a holistic approach to infrastructural development in the country.
Union Minister of State, Shri Shripad Naik said that Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi has always laid emphasis on the generation of employment, leveraging technology for innovation and citizen centricity and attracting investment in various sectors of the economy.
Focusing on the Rozgar Mela initiative, Shri Naik said the Rozgar Mela is a step towards the fulfilment of the commitment of the Prime Minister to accord the highest priority to employment generation in the country. In the past all important initiatives like Make in India, State Up India, Production Linked Incentive and Skill development programmes have been major contributions to employment generation for the Youth of the Country, he added. Rozgarmela is expected to act as a catalyst in further employment generation and provide meaningful opportunities to the youth for their employment and participation in national development directly, he remarked.
Speaking further he said that apart from making recruitment at a massive and unprecedented scale, there is also a special focus on granting timely promotions to all the officers working in various government organizations As a result promotions are now happening across the departments with timely promotions at all levels, more vacancies are likely to be created at the entry-level posts, he pointed.
The new recruits, selected from across the country, will join various positions/posts under Government of India like Junior Engineers, loco pilots, Technicians, Inspector, Sub Inspectors, Constable, stenographers, Junior Accountant, Grameen Dak Sevak, Income Tax Inspector, Teacher, Nurse, Doctor, Social security Officer, PA, MTS, among others.
Shri Rohit Monserrate, Mayor, Corporation of City of Panaji and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
