Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the recruitment drive for 10 lakh personnel, and appointment letters were handed over to 75,000 newly inducted appointees at the Rojgar Mela programme held in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh on Saturday. He also extended Dhanteras greetings to the people.
Addressing the appointees via video conferencing, the Prime Minister said that in celebration of the 75 years of independence, the Central government is giving appointment letters to the youths under a special programme.

Today India is the 5th largest economy due to the reforms made in the last eight years," Modi said.
The Union government is working simultaneously on many fronts to create more and more jobs in the country, he said.

"You are being appointed for the service of the citizens of the country... In the 21st century India Government job is not just about facilities but a commitment and a golden opportunity to serve the people from every nook and corner of the country in a time-bound manner," Modi added.
