Young people demand employment from the government

The general budget for the third term of the Modi government will be presented on July 23. From the common man to the youth, people are expecting many important announcements from Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The biggest problem of the youth is unemployment. Vikas Joshi, who lives in Bulandshahr, UP, is also worried about not getting a job. His father works in the Railways and is soon going to retire. In such a situation, Vikas needs to get a job as soon as possible, but with paper leaks happening every day as government jobs are not being filled, his hopes are being shattered. Like Vikas, there are thousands of youth who are roaming door to door in search of jobs. They are demanding that the government release jobs in the budget this time. It now remains to be seen whether the government opens the box of jobs for the youth or not.

Why is there a job shortage?

The government’s job portal, the National Career Service (NCS), has come up with job vacancy data, according to which the number of vacancies listed on the portal has increased to 1.09 crore by 2024, while the number of people registered for jobs is only 87.2 lakh. Despite the increase in the number of jobs, people are not getting jobs. The reason for this is that the candidate does not meet the required parameters for the job. In some cases, youngsters are not able to apply for jobs due to contract employment in selected jobs or due to low salary as per the job. In such a situation, Suresh Sharma from Noida wants the government in this year’s budget to provide free training to students so that they can qualify for jobs. Also, instead of contract employment, make them permanent.

The situation worsened due to privatization.

Ravi Kumar from Ghaziabad says that major government sectors like telecom, banks, insurance and airlines are being privatised with time. Due to this, the demand for jobs has reduced. Companies want to work better with fewer people by focusing on technology, so opportunities for new recruitment have been limited. Even if companies hire staff, they do so on a contractual basis and not on a permanent basis. In such a situation, they do not have job security or adequate salary. The situation has worsened due to the prevalence of privatisation in government departments. In such a situation, Ravi appeals to the government to stop privatisation of government departments and also provide them with job security like pensions, insurance, etc.

Why is there no hiring for government positions?

All government offices are facing a shortage of employees. Despite this, recruitment is not taking place. Lokesh from Noida is very upset about the paper leaks and manipulations in the departments where recruitment is taking place. He has been preparing for a government job for the last 3 years, has submitted many documents, but for some reason the vacancy suddenly gets cancelled. So they are only feeling disappointed. However, experts claim that the government is not making new recruitments due to lack of budget.
