The Centre is gearing up to hold another phase of ‘Rozgar Mela’. As part of this ongoing exercise aimed at providing employment to 10 lakh youth in the central government, Prime Minister Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hand over more than 51,000 appointment letters tomorrow. PM Modi will also address the fresh appointees virtually.
The Rozgar Mela will be held across the country in 45 locations with the aim to recruiting personnel in various central armed police forces (CAPFs) such as Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Shashtra Seema Bal (SSB), Assam Rifles, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Narcotics control Bureau (NCB) as well as Delhi Police. The new recruits, selected from across the country, will be joining the various positions such as constable and sub-inspector in various organisations under the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Strengthening of CAPFs as well as Delhi Police will help these forces to play their multidimensional role more effectively like aiding in internal security, counter terrorism, combating insurgency, anti-left-wing extremism and protecting the borders of the nation, an official statement said, adding that the exercise is expected to not only act as a catalyst in further employment generation but also provide meaningful opportunities to the youth for their empowerment and participation in national development.
The first phase of Rozgar Mela was launched by PM Modi in October 2022, when appointment letters were handed over to more than 75,000 newly appointed recruits, News On Air said.
