Centre to recruit almost 10 lakh people in next 18 months | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: With the central government set to recruit 10 lakh people over the next one-and-a-half years to fill up the nearly 9.79 lakh vacant posts across all ministries and departments, junior minister Jitendra Singh on Thursday told the Rajya Sabha that all posts deemed abolished upon remaining vacant for more than 2-3 years may be revived based on functional justification. Singh, in reply to another question, stated there are currently 1,472 vacancies in the IAS and 864 in IPS.
PM Narendra Modi had in June this year reviewed the status of human resources in all central 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.
Responding to a query by BJP MP Sushil Kumar Modi Thursday, Singh said of the 9.79 lakh vacancies in the central government as on March 1, 2021 — 2.93 lakh relate to the railways, 2.64 lakh to ministry of defence (civilian), 1.43 lakh to ministry of home affairs, and 90,050 to department of posts.
As many as 23,584 vacant posts are in Group A (gazetted) category, 26,282 in Group B (gazetted), 92,525 in Group B (non-gazetted), and 8.36 lakh in Group C (non-gazetted). Defence ministry alone has 39,366 Group B (non-gazetted) and 2.14 lakh Group C posts vacant. Railways has 2.91 lakh Group C posts and MHA has 1.21 lakh Group C (non-gazetted) posts vacant.
Assuring the House that it was the Centre’s endeavour to fill vacancies in all-India services like IAS and IPS, he said the government had increased the annual intake of IAS officers to 180 starting with the Civil Services Examination, 2012, based on recommendations of the Baswan Committee. Intake of IPS through CSE has been increased to 200 from CSE-2020, he said.
