Srinagar, January 15: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has directed that 1 million people be given jobs in the central government in the next 18 months. 

According to the CNI Monitoring Desk, the Prime Minister's Office tweeted that the Prime Minister reviewed the human resource situation in all departments and ministries and directed that the government recruit 1 million people in mission mode in the next 1.5 years. 

The government had told Parliament earlier this year that a total of 8.72 lakh posts were vacant in central government departments as on March 1, 2020. The central government has sanctioned more than 4 million, but employs less than 3.2 million. 

The government has been trying to fill these vacancies for years, but without much success. According to reports, the largest number of vacancies are in major ministries and departments such as posts, defense (civil), railways and revenue. 

According to details, there are about 2.3 lakh vacancies in the Ministry of Railways against about 1.5 lakh sanctioned posts. In the Department of Defense (Civil), there are about 2.5 lakh vacancies against the sanctioned strength of about 6.33 lakh.

The Department of Posts has about 90,000 vacancies against the total sanctioned strength of 2.67 lakh, while the Ministry of Home Affairs has 10.8 lakh sanctioned posts. About 1.3 lakh posts are vacant compared to 2018. 

A senior government official explained that due to acute shortage of employees, the work of some departments is affected and new recruitments are delayed even though retirements have taken place and even ministries. The sanctioned number of employees has also increased over the years. 

Meanwhile, Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his directive to recruit 1 million in mission mode in one and a half years in all government departments and ministries. 

In a tweet, Interior Minister Ami T Shah said that the foundation of new India is its youth power, Prime Minister Modi is continuously working to empower them. 

Shri Modi's directive to make 1 million recruitments in mission mode in 1.5 years in all government departments and ministries will instill new hope and confidence in the youth. As per Prime Minister Narendra Modi's directions for recruitment, steps have been taken to fill the vacant posts in mission mode. (CNI) reports
