New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday distributed over 51,000 appointment letters to recently enlisted personnel across various paramilitary forces. The occasion marked the 8th edition of the Rozgar Mela, a multi-location employment fair taking place at 45 venues nationwide.
Addressing the gathering virtually, PM Modi highlighted the substantial alterations made to the paramilitary recruitment process, aimed at opening novel pathways for the country’s youth. He emphasized the streamlining of recruitment procedures, effectively reducing the time frame for the entire process.
Discussing prospects for the younger generation, Modi underscored the rapid growth within the automotive and pharmaceutical sectors, which he believes will yield substantial employment opportunities in the near future. Furthermore, he expressed a strong conviction that India is poised to secure a spot among the world’s top three economies within the current decade, a commitment he asserted with unwavering responsibility.
Modi encouraged paramilitary personnel to maintain a persistent drive for learning even during their active service years. He urged the fresh recruits to enroll in a new portal designed for skill development and courses, assuring them that the knowledge gained would pave the way for them to excel as exceptional officers.
“Whatever you will learn during these courses will help you in becoming an excellent officer,” said PM Modi. He also asked the new recruits to focus on their physical fitness and maintain their health and fitness throughout their service.
The Prime Minister also lauded the government’s emphasis on procuring Made-in-India laptops and computers, aligning with the “vocal for local” mantra, which in turn is fostering manufacturing and generating employment opportunities.
