How to apply online for a job in PM Narendra Modi's Government office

Are you looking for job vacancies for freshers and experienced people in the office of the Central Government of India? This article provides complete information of the recruitment announcement made by the Government of India to fill up various positions. Know the list of jobs and the eligibility requirements for each.

About two years ago, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had launched a unique platform for the citizens of India to share their expertise towards developing better government policies. Through this platform, namely the portal MyGov, the Government of India's online Citizen Engagement Platform, now one can apply for a job too by uploading one's resume at the online portal. Your resume will then become a part of the data bank of resumes (at the time of writing this article, there were 1,999 resumes which were submitted and not yet reviewed) which goverment officials will check out from time to time to find an expert in a particular field as and when the need arises to do. The selected candidate can then take up a contractual position in a specific department or organization or institution based on his/her expertise in that field.

Of course, there is no 100% guarantee of employment. Nor is it the case that you will necessarily be employed in the main central goverment office at New Delhi - it could be in some ancillary office or organization. You will need to clarify the job location if your resume is selected and you are called for a one-on-one interactive discussion/interview with the government selection committee officials.

For all the below-listed positions, your job level in terms of work, pay scale, perks and seniority would be on the basis of your academic qualification and relevant work experience.
