No interviews for Class-III, IV govt jobs from today: PM

modi_jpg_1518312fNEW DELHI: The decision to abolish interviews for Class-III and IV government jobs comes into effect today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has described it as a New Year Gift which will free the youth from corruption.
In a tweet, Mr Modi said, the decision will impact over 29 lakh central government posts. Mr Modi’s tweet came soon after he talked about the issue at an event in Noida yesterday, while laying the foundation stone of a 14-lane expressway connecting Delhi with Meerut.
The Prime Minister said, interviews are seen as a means to get a job by using somebody’s influence and those deserving are deprived in the process. He said, it is a major step in the fight against corruption and the government’s effort to save the youth from problems they encounter while seeking jobs.
Mr Modi appealed to all Chief Ministers to take the same step and particularly urged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to put it into practice, noting that he himself is an MP from the state. The Prime Minister had first talked about his intent to abolish interviews for lower level government jobs in his last Independence Day address.
