To tackle the rising unemployment in the country, the central government on Tuesday, said that it will be filling 10 lakh job vacancies across various ministries and departments in the next year and a half.

“PM Modi reviewed the status of human resources in all departments and ministries and instructed that recruitment of 10 lakh people be done by the Government in mission mode in the next 1.5 years,” the government said in the tweet.

Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said in a Rajya Sabha meeting in July last year that there were around 8.72 lakh vacant posts in different central governments.

According to the Times of India report, PM Modi is focusing on filling up the vacancies quickly and to start the process within months. Following up on this, all departments and ministries were asked to prepare a list of vacancies in the sanctioned posts.

“Prime Minister's review meeting comes more than two months after he suggested the secretaries of the central government take immediate steps to fill up existing vacancies in the ministries and departments,” Cabinet secretary Rajiv Gaubao told PTI.

This announcement came after the opposition started raising issues and concerns over rising unemployment in India. The unemployment rate in May stood at 7.12%, according to the data by Center for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE).

Earlier, the central government also announced one lakh jobs in the drone industry in the coming years as the industry is set to grow more in the country. “India will be a drone hub by 2030,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the 'Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022' in New Delhi on May 27.
