With effect from tomorrow, there will be no interviews for central government jobs in Class-III and IV categories, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced today, terming it as a “New Year Gift” to the youth and a major step to curb corruption.

“From tomorrow, interviews for government jobs in Class-III and Class-IV categories will be abolished. This will help curb corruption,” he tweeted.

His tweet came soon after he talked about the issue at an event in Noida, near here, while laying a foundation stone of a 14-lane expressway connecting Delhi with Meerut.

Addressing a public meeting there, he said, “Today is December 31, the last day of 2015 and from tomorrow, 2016 will begin… We are going to give a unique gift to the youth, such a unique gift which will free the youth from corruption, it will free the youth from being compelled to depend on anybody.”

He said the government has taken a decision, which will be implemented from tomorrow, that there will be no interviews for Class-III and IV jobs.

“Interviews are seen as a means to get a job by using somebody’s influence. And those deserving are deprived in the process. That is why the government has decided that from tomorrow, the New Year gift is that for Class-III and IV jobs, there will be no interview,” the Prime Minister said.

“Through technology and on the basis of merit, if anybody deserves a job, the offer will reach his house,” he said.

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.

He appealed to all Chief Ministers to take the same step and particularly urged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, noting that he himself is an MP from the state.

Modi had first talked about his intent to abolish interviews for lower level government jobs in his last Independence Day address, saying the practice breeds corruption and many poor people lose out in this process.

“One of the areas of corruption is recruitment. Even the poorest of the poor wants that his son should get a job,” he had said and lamented that many lose out due to corruption in the process of interviews.

“I have not yet seen a psychologist who can assess a person in a two-minute interview,” Modi had said.

                              I applaud this crucial step taken by our honourable PM.Its something no other PM ever before gave any thought to.Corruption in employment is a major problem which can now be curbed atleast in cl III and cl IV jobs.Getting selected in written and then to get rejected because of a two min. Interview with a panel is very disheartening and unacceptable.
